SPECIAL SYNTHETIC WAXES

ACHISIZE W LIA 100

Acrylic-based polymer characterized by a resistant and plastic film that is not very sensitive to temperature variations. It has a high covering power and thanks to the presence of special lubricants it gives excellent slipperiness avoiding the stiffening of the hairs that come out of the yarn body. The presence of wetting agents allows a rapid but above all homogeneous distribution in particularly short times. The product is used both on cellulosic and animal fibres and in particular on linen.

ZDHC LEVEL 3 INDITEX A A A

Complete range of products for textile sizing, which improves the resistance of the warp threads during the weaving process.
