Energy saving Eco Applicator continues to make an impact

Jul '12

The improved soft coating solution from Monforts continues to make an impact following launches at shows in Bangladesh, USA, India and ITMA Asia; providing significant energy savings with reduced drying times and the possible elimination of a conventional wet-on-wet padder.

The recently introduced new Eco Applicator soft coating process from A. Monforts Textilmaschinen provides significant energy savings with reduced liquor application and eliminates the need for a conventional wet-on-wet padder.

The new process using trough and roller techniques, applies just the required amount of liquid/coating to the fabric via contact with the roller.

It has been designed for three options – to apply a liquid/coating to one side of the fabric; to apply a liquid to both sides of the fabric; and to apply a liquid to one side and a different liquid to the other side.

The Eco-applicator range is suitable for felt finishes, coated materials and medical textiles. Applications include nano coating, water repellancy, softeners, flame retardency and insect repellent.

When used for clothing applications, the soft coating process can, for example, apply soil-or water-repellency to one side of the fabric and softener or water absorption, respectively, to the second side.

The new process can eliminate the need for a conventional padder, applying the liquid/coating via a roller.  A twin-roller is used for double-sided applications. 

Compared with a padder operation, the initial moisture content of 60% is reduced to 40% using the Monforts soft coating process; ensuring a reduction in drying times and reduced energy costs.
