Durable colours, functional surfaces, high-speed treatment: plasma in textile manufacturing
Openair® Plasma pretreatment significantly improves the wettability of fibres and yarns, allowing even solvent-free dyes to bond well and durably. Surfaces can be provided with hydrophobic and dirt-repellent finishes. Openair® Plasma jets can keep pace with the tough demands of new high-performance spinning equipment.
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...more
Plasma treatment hydrophilises fabrics and technical nonwovens and facilitates wettability with water-based processing materials in subsequent steps, such as dyeing, printing, or textile finishing...more
Fabric can acquire entirely new material qualities by creating new functionalities, like self-cleaning finishes, bioactive surfaces, and flame-retardant properties, for example...more
