WOOLEN SPINNING

ACHIFIL AL

Lubricant expressly designed for spinning wool and its blends with synthetic, having a high performance in carding processes. The product is characterized by excellent lubricating power and to help reduce the coefficient of friction F/F and F/M. It does not give rise to rancidity, yellowing or deposits and does not damage the parts of the machinery.

ACHIFIL R 345

Lubricant suitable for worsted spinning of wool and its blends with synthetic, suitable both for open-end spinning and to be used in a backwashing. The product is characterized by its excellent lubricating power and high capacity to retain moisture. It improves the cohesion between fibres and reduces the coefficients of friction F/F and F/M. It does not give rise to rancidity, yellowing or deposits and does not damage the parts of the machinery.
