Monforts Reports Success Of Matex Eco Applicator
The process, which uses trough and roller techniques, applies only the necessary amount of liquid/coating to the fabric via contact with the roller, Monforts reports. Options include application of liquid/coating to one or both sides of the fabric, or application of different liquids/coatings on each side — for example, a soil- or water-repellent finish on one side of the fabric and a softener on the other side. The process uses a twin roller for double-sided applications.
Monforts reports that compared with a padder operation, the Matex Eco Applicator process reduces initial moisture content from 60 percent to 40 percent, thereby reducing drying times and energy costs.
The device can apply finishes including nano coatings, water repellents, softeners, flame retardants and insect repellents; and is suitable for applications including felt finishes, coated materials and medical textiles.
