OPTI-COAT - innovative coating technology stands out
The market of functional textiles for sports and outdoor has grown considerably in the last years. Woven fabric can be directly coated without problems due to their high dimensional stability, therefore functional textiles became widely accepted in the field of woven fabrics. Knitted fabric, however, is very elastic and direct coating is therefore only possible with many difficulties.
BRÜCKNER developed together with the Dutch company Stork Prints a new technology for the direct coating of elastic knitted fabric. In this process a rotary printing screen is integrated in the entry zone of a stenter.
Compared to the classical coating with knife-over-air or knife-over-cylinder the coating by means of rotary screen has the following advantages:
- no fabric distortion and no damage of the fabric surface (for example abrasion) during the coating process
- the application quantity and the application position can be set exactly forall screen types this allows to apply certain functional features systematically on certain positions of the fabric
- it is possible to realize plain coating and dot coating, the fabric hand can be influenced selectively
- beside "invisible" functions such as hydrophobic finishing unicoloured fashion effects can be realized with the direct coating process
