Fabric adhesive. Apretan

The main product quality indicators are worn qualities and durability in the textile and construction industries.

Therefore, textile industry experts are scrupulous about the choice of adhesives for the fabric, as well as resort to the use of special formulations – apretan used as steeping to give the materials of different properties for cutting and further practical use.

Textile impregnation method (apretan) is also used in the production of construction material such as fiberglass mesh so that it acquires the necessary alkali fastness, stiffness, frame and durability.

The apretan and fabric adhesive - application

The apretan of the "Lux-X" company can be applied as an adhesive material and for additional properties provision to the material. This effect is achieved by steeping or one-sided coating of fabric or unwoven textile.

The apretan (coupling agents) of the "Lux-M" brand is applied in the production:

  • unwoven textile;
  • mechanical fabric;
  • fiberglass mesh;
  • tapestries and carpeting;
  • simulated fur;

After treatment with the apretan "Lux" materials gain the following qualities:

  • framing;
  • crumpling resistance;
  • tensile strength and resistance to abrasion;
  • static dissipative properties;
  • fabric external appearance improvement;

Under the client's order, impregnation with the water repellency effect, fire resistance and other properties are produced.

Fabric adhesive of "Lux" production can be used for duplication, i.e., sticking two fabrics together or fabric to another base, to give durability, elastic frame-based structures, crumpling resistance and improve the overall appearance of the material.

The products manufactured by the company "Lux-X" are completely environmentally friendly and do not emit harmful substances into the environment.

Recommendations for use

To apply the apretan "LUX-M" at simulated fur or woven fabric by the method of spreading the sizing paste is prepared: the finish and stiffener. We recommend applying high viscosity CMC solutions or other cellulose esters as a stiffener. The ready-made CMC solution is mixed with the finish for 15-20 minutes in a ratio of 3:1 to 4:1 (20-25% of the finish), depending on the type of simulated fur or fabric on which the paste will be applied.

For the application of apretan "LUX-MP" with the help of foam technology the finish is diluted with water in ratio from 1:1 to 1:2, stirred for 5-10 min. and is fed to the foam generator.

For the application of the apretan "LUX-M" by the method of padder (calender), for the submersible application method (steeping) is prepared 10 - 60% water solution by mixing or is used in pure form.

Textile glue for duplication of fabrics or non-woven materials is used in the finished form.

For your production equipment, for a specific application unit, we will produce a product with the necessary viscosity and thixotropic character for the correct operation of the product on the line.

Polymerization and drying of the product are held under the temperature of 110-140˚С for 1-2 minutes. Line Recommended speed is 6 to 30 m/min.

These recommendations are general and are adjusted by the consumer depending on the process conditions (line speed, the provisions of the drainage shaft, angle of the doctor knife, temperature drying conditions, etc.).
