POLYPROPYLENE SPINNING

TECHSPIN PHB 377

Spin finish developed for the production of staple polypropylene with hydrophobic characteristics suitable for hygienic use. It is characterized by the low coefficient of friction F / M and the excellent antistatic property. The product guarantees good cardability of the staple and excellent hydrophobicity.

TECHSPIN PHS 120

Silicone-free spin finish developed for the production of processed polypropylene in non-woven thermo-bonding for the hygienic sector, when a high standard hydrophilicity is required. Also suitable for spun-bond. It is characterized by the balanced coefficient of friction F/M and F/F, and preventing the formation of electrostatic charges. The product has excellent thermal stability and guarantees low strike through and rewet values.

TECHSPIN PST 46

Spin finish developed for the spinning of staple polypropylene intended for non-woven, carpets, both raw and dyed in mass. It is characterized by the good balance of the coefficient of friction F/F and F/M and good thermal resistance, as well as for the excellent antistatic property. It guarantees good wettability of ends and good cohesion.
