Size is a starch-based composition that is applied to warp yarn to protect it during weaving. Sizing of warp yarn is done to reduce production stops caused by yarn breakage on the weaving machine due to frictional and abrasive stresses during the weaving process.
Sizing is typically a water based polymer comprised of modified starch to protect the yarn, and wax to reduce abrasiveness and friction of the yarn.
REQUIREMENTS OF A GOOD SIZE
- Improve Tensile Strength of the yarn
- Better Abrasion Resistance while Weaving
- Good Adhesion
- can be easily removed during desizing
We also provide desizing products to ensure the easy removal of the sizing once the weaving process has been completed.
We continually test to ensure compliance with our stringent standards.
