Monforts debuts improved eco-friendly denim finishing

German textile finishing specialist Monforts has made its Monfortex compressive shrinkage ranges for denim finishing even more cost efficient and eco-friendly.

According to a Monforts press release, stretching and skewing functions for the denim fabric can be performed by a modified Thermex Thermo stretch unit.

“This configuration allows fabric speeds of up to 40 metres per minute to be achieved with 14.5 oz per sq. yards denim on the single rubber version,” it added.

While a 'double rubber' version comprises two compressive shrinkage units and two felt calenders in line.

“ In the 'double rubber' version, together with the innovative Thermex Thermo Stretch, fabric speeds of up to 80 metres per minute can be achieved with 14.5 oz per sq. yard denim,” the company explained.

On both range versions, the denim fabric is stretched and skewed far more gently than with conventional range combinations.

With the larger diameter of the shrinkage cylinder in combination with the automatic rubber belt grinder, the standard is determined in shrinkage technology for minimum residual shrinkage values and optimum fabric hand.

“With a quick-change facility available only from Monforts, the shrinkage belt can be changed in the shortest possible time and standstill times are absolutely minimised,” it stated.

The proven, energy saving, Eco-Applicator soft coating process from Monforts for the application of liquors and functional chemicals is now also available for denim fabric applications.

The Eco-Applicator offers significant energy savings with reduced liquor application, while the multi-functional and multi-purpose process ensures the lowest energy input for consecutive drying to its minimal liquor application. (AR)
