Air Jet Yarn
Preferred Process Guidelines for fabrics produced using Polyester Viscose dyed AIR JET yarn.
Two Major points to be observed
  • No singeing
  • Heat Setting in the stenter at lower temperature with less contact time compared to normal fabrics. Setting temperature 170 to 175 degree Celsius with contact time 30 seconds is ideal.
 
Minor points, but still valid points
  • Pre treatment / scouring in jet machine for soft handle using normal lubricating agent, detergent and good quality wetting agent.
  • While drying, fabric should not be over dried, better to take slight moist.
  • In Chemical finishing use following combination:
    • Micro base Amino silicone             20-30 grams per litre
    • Hydrophilic softener                       15-20 grams per litre
    • High density polyethylene              10-15 grams per litre
  • Addition of 10 grams per litre Elastomer helps to improve luster & resiliency
  • In mechanical finish, Decatise or Sanforise.
 
For value added finish
  • Bright & shine appearance Calendaring with face of the fabric contact with metallic cylinder before Decatising
  • Very soft & Drape handle Alkali treatment & washing prior to chemical finish.
  • Functional finish Moisture management finish, perfume finish, UV protection finish, easy care, etc. May be given along with the chemical finish.
 
Suggested chemical for various processes (From CHT chemicals)
Wetting agent - BEISOL PES Lubricating agent - BIAVIN TCC Micro Amino silicone - TUBINGAL RGH Hydrophilic softener - TUBINGAL A27 High density polymer - POLYAVIN PEN
