WORSTED SPINNING

ACHIFIL STO

Spin finish developed to ensure optimal friction conditions between the fibre and the materials with which it comes into contact, in particular in the processing of wool. The product is characterized by its balanced lubricating power. It improves the resistance of the yarns, reducing the dustiness in the processing. Creates effective protection from electrostatic charges, and avoids the formation of rolls or windings on the cylinders. It does not corrode machinery.

ACHISTAT 073 F

Multi-purpose antistatic that can be used in all spinning and gluing processes. It is characterized by its high antistatic effect and its ability to retain moisture. The product does not contain mineral oils and fats and is free from odors and yellowing. Its special formulation allows to obtain well parallelized fibres and very regular sleevers.

GOTS 6.0 ZDHC LEVEL 3 INDITEX A A A

ACHISTAT AL 30

Multipurpose antistatic that can be used in all spinning processes. It is characterized by its high antistatic effect, being odorless and easily eliminated from the fibre with a simple wash.

GOTS 6.0 ZDHC LEVEL 1

ACHISTAT CB 2

Multipurpose antistatic that can be used in all spinning processes. It is characterized by its high antistatic effect, being odorless and easily eliminated from the fibre with a simple wash.

DEFILAN EM 35

Blend of lubricating esters, emulsifiers, antistatic agents and special additives, which was developed for yarns intended for weaving and knitting. It is used in all spinning processes, as it gives the fibres optimal lubrication, cohesion and antistaticity. It is characterized by reducing dynamic and static friction as well as the discharge of fat and deposit on the ironing cylinders. The product has excellent antistatic protection which ensures full belt uniformity with regular Uster values. It does not damage the parts of the machinery, it is perfectly soluble in water and biodegradable.

DEFILAN SC

Blend of lubricating esters, emulsifiers, antistatic agents and special additives, which was developed for yarns intended for weaving and knitting. It is used in all spinning processes, as it gives the fibres optimal lubrication, cohesion and antistaticity. It is characterized by reducing dynamic and static friction as well as the discharge of fat and deposit on the ironing cylinders. The product has excellent antistatic protection which ensures full belt uniformity with regular Uster values. It does not damage the parts of the machinery, it is perfectly soluble in water and biodegradable.

DEFILAN UN

Spin finish suitable for any kind of spinning process, both for natural and synthetic fibres. It can be used both in a smoother and during various ironing steps. It is characterized by the low coefficient of friction F/F and F/M and the good antistatic effect. The product does not stick to the fibres, is easily purgable and biodegradable.

GOTS 6.0 ZDHC LEVEL 1

DEFILAN VP 90

Blend of synthetic lubricants, emulsifiers, antistatic agents and special additives, developed for the worsted spinning of all natural and synthetic fibres and their blends. It is also suitable for woolen spinning, in particular for animal hair. The use of hard water or water contaminated with algae and bacteria should be avoided because they could damage the treated fibre. It is characterized by the total absence of mineral oil and/or alkylphenols and its high antistatic and cohesive power. It increases the uniformity of the belt and contains the formation of dust and avoids the formation of plaques. The product is easily purgable.

ZDHC LEVEL 3 INDITEX A A A

DEFILAN W 301

Blend of lubricating esters, emulsifiers, antistatic agents and special additives, which was developed for yarns intended for weaving and knitting. It is used in all spinning processes, as it gives the fibres optimal lubrication, cohesion and antistaticity. It is characterized by reducing dynamic and static friction as well as the discharge of fat and deposit on the ironing cylinders. The product has excellent antistatic protection which ensures full belt uniformity with regular Uster values. It does not damage the parts of the machinery, it is perfectly soluble in water and biodegradable.

GOTS 6.0 ZDHC LEVEL 3 INDITEX A A A

DEFILAN W 406

Blend of lubricating esters, emulsifiers, antistatic agents and special additives, which was developed for yarns intended for weaving and knitting. It is used in all spinning processes, as it gives the fibres optimal lubrication, cohesion and antistaticity. It is characterized by reducing dynamic and static friction as well as the discharge of fat and deposit on the ironing cylinders. The product has excellent antistatic protection which ensures full belt uniformity with regular Uster values. It does not damage the parts of the machinery, it is perfectly soluble in water and biodegradable.
