compressive shrinkage

compressive shrinkage

[kəm′pres·iv ′shriŋk·ij]
(textiles)
A technique for producing shrink-resistant cotton or linen fabric by lightly dampening the fabric, placing it on a thick blanket, and then pressing it against a heated cylinder, causing it to retract.

Bethge opted to order two new energy-saving six-chamber Montex stenters, as well as a Monfortex compressive shrinkage range, which is characterised by a larger shrink cylinder allowing for longer processing paths to achieve enhanced shrinkage values.
Our high speed "double rubber" compressive shrinkage ranges in tandem configuration produce top quality denim fabrics and the range sizes are designed even higher production speeds up to 80 metres per minute and more!
As already mentioned before Monforts Monfortex compressive shrinkage ranges for denim finishing are more cost-efficient and eco-friendly.
These include in particular stenters, continuous dyeing ranges, compressive shrinkage ranges and special ranges for the coating and treatment of "technical textiles".
Monforts Monfortex compressive shrinkage ranges for denim finishing are now even more cost-efficient and eco-friendly.
An in-depth technical article on Monforts denim ranges a concept for denim finishing' describes overdyeing of denim grey fabric with Econtrol; over-dyeing with reactive dyestuffs using Econtrol; effect dyeing of denim wide open fabric using Econtrol; denim coating; and stretching, skewing and compressive shrinkage.
A Monforts Toptex shrinking range has recently been installed at the UK's Pincroft Dyers and Printers facility in Chorley, Lancashire to ensure precise control of compressive shrinkage for the company's range of camouflaged military uniforms and industrial contract workwear.
Consequently, it took delivery of a new Toptex sanforizer - through local Monforts representative Colplan - for the precise control of compressive shrinkage in fabrics, after a long evaluation period of potential options.
A completely new redesigned compressive shrinkage sanforisor for both woven (Monfortex) and knitted (Toptex) fabrics offers increased residual shrinkage, higher production speeds, automatic grinding of the rubber blanket, reduced water consumption for cooling and substantial time savings for blanket changes.
