GlowPlasma to hydrophilize textiles – long-term colorfastness for textiles

From fibers and yarn to flat fabrics – here too the same requirements apply to equipment and dyeability. For example, all remaining sizing must be effectively removed without damaging the fabric.

GlowPlasma provides the same highly efficient pretreatment to fabrics as Openair® plasma does to yarn. After treatment with GlowPlasma, the fabric is completely hydrophilic (hydrophilization), which means that it can absorb even environmentally friendly dyes with greater surface tension and in greater quantities. The resulting coloring is especially durable and colorfast – important factors in evaluating the quality of textiles.
