Durable colors, functional surfaces, high-speed treatment: plasma in textile manufacturing

Openair® Plasma pretreatment significantly improves the wettability of fibers and yarns, allowing even solvent-free dyes to bond well and durably. Surfaces can be provided with hydrophobic and dirt-repellent finishes. Openair® Plasma jets can keep pace with the tough demands of new high-performance spinning equipment.

  • Yarn finishing – durable, stable colorfastness thanks to physical surface modification.

    In fiber and yarn technology, the focus is on the first step of the textile production chain. Modern textiles demand durable, stable colorfastness while simultaneously reducing the use of solvents...
