The finishing of fabrics at Pincroft for a wide number of sectors and applications will be carried out on new environmentally friendly technology from Baldwin.
The new TexCoat G4 is a precision spray machine that not only offers very good sustainable aspects including the reduction on water, chemical and energy usage, but also the flexibility to adapt to the customer’s needs in terms of single and double-sided finish application.
The sustainability benefits of this new machine allow Pincroft Dyeing & Printing Co. Ltd., Adlington/UK, to save up to 20% of the finishing chemistry, with no waste or color changeovers and no need for periodic pad renewals. It also reduces the amount of water used by 50% as a result of increasing chemistry concentration. Productivity is also benefitted, with an increase of 50% caused by the lower wet pick up which allows for a higher line speed.
Energy consumption is another factor highly improved by the Texcoat G4, since a higher line speed leads to a more efficient use of the stenter. The machine also consumes less than 10% of the electric power of a pad.
The new non-contact textile finishing equipment from Baldwin Technology Co. Inc., St. Louis, MO/USA, utilizes precision valve technology coupled with optimized software algorithms assuring accurate and even finish coverage with virtually no waste. The Texcoat G4 at Pincroft can be utilized for a number of fabric finishes that include, among others, vector protection (permethrin), antimicrobial, crease resistance, water repellency, stain and soil release, and flame retardancy.
Its versatility is also seen in offering single and double-sided finishing for fabrics in industries like automotive, aerospace, defense, home furnishings, oil and gas, mining and utilities.
