Durable, stable colourfastness: High-speed plasma treatment in yarn finishing
In fibre and yarn technology, the focus is on the first step of the textile production chain. Modern textiles demand durable, stable colourfastness while simultaneously reducing the use of solvents.
Plasmatreat has developed and patented an innovative plasma technology for the pre-treatment and finishing of new polymers, filament and staple fibres. The wettability of the fibres and yarns is measurably increased, allowing even solvent-free dyes to bond well and durably. High-speed Openair® plasma jets can keep pace with the demands of new high-performance technologies in advanced filament spinning equipment that can attain speeds of up to 1000 m/min.
Special advantages of Openair® plasma technology in treating yarns:
- Dry physical surface modification
- Durable hydrophilic yarn finishing
- Fully automatic, reliably monitored production process, with up to 8 yarns per plasma jet (yarn jet)
- Extensive know-how and test systems for treatment of textiles and yarn
