As synthetic fibres tend to be poor conductors of electricity, friction during processing can cause build-up of static charge. This can lead to a variety of processing problems. Croda offers a wide range of anti-static agents that are designed to eliminate processing problems due to static electricity build-up.
In the dyeing step, pre-treated fabric is dyed with different classes of dyestuff depending on the substrate used and end performance requirements. Croda offer various dye bath additives which ensure trouble-free dyeing and best results in terms of yield, solidity, fabric appearance, fastness, and batch to batch consistency.
Synthetic fibres can often be hydrophobic upon manufacturing, meaning it is difficult for water to pass through the fibre. Our durable finishes can improve the hydrophilic tendencies of synthetic fibres and increase the strike-through.
Spin finishes are predominantly processing aids applied to the fibre surface during or immediately after fibre extrusion. They positively influence the way that fibre is processed both by the fibre maker and by their customers who conduct further processing. They provide fibres with three main functions, lubrication, anti-static and cohesion.
Synthetic fibres have an inherent property of static generation which leads to clinging of fabric and increased soiling tendency, leading to wearer’s discomfort. To control/ nullify static generation – we require anti-static agents. We offer different products which can meet stringent anti-static testing methods and durability requirements.
It is required from active and sports-wears to transport moisture from body to fabric and evaporate further during physical exercise or training. It improves the wearer’s comfort and increases performance. For this kind of moisture management fabric, we offer specialised durable systems with added quick dry properties for quick spread and absorption of moisture.
