PLAtex fields of application:
PLAtex can effectively replace the PolyesterScouring process, eliminating completely the use of chemicals and detergents and reducing up to 100% the water consumption.
Viscose purge: Polyester scouring
PLAtex can replace traditional PURGE of viscose, introducing a sustainable process that eliminates the need of water and hazardous chemicals.
Cotton fabric in its loom-state contains impurities and requires further treatment to be ready for the dyeing step. Cotton cleaning and preparation involve the use of different chemical agents. PLAtex makes cotton preparation a sustainable, chemicals-free and water-free process. Polyester scouring
Wool Treatment Same as cotton, wool processing is a multi-step process to transform raw wool into finished product. Among the several steps there are anti-felting (see fibre section) and dyeing. Wool dyeing requires high temperature (≃98°C), a large amount of water and a long time to fix and level the dye on the fibre. PLAtex makes wool dyeing a cold, less water-demanding and less dye-consuming process. Polyester scouring
Digital printing preparation
NO bleeding, Higher definition, Brilliant colors, Modulation of color penetration
Plain dyeing Polyester scouring
Shorter dyeing cycles, Single-step process,Water less treatment
Polyester adhesion improvement
PLAtex improves hydrophilicity and adhesion.
Platex process facilitates impregnation of water-based resins and finishing products eliminating the need for chemicals to pair different materials.
