By this process high-quality wool and woollen-blend fabrics receive a permanent fixing. The wool fabrics acquire important
basic qualities like a flowing drape, crease resistance and a discreet glaze finish. Decatizing takes place through the application of steam under pressure.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF DECATIZING ?
Improvement of the texture through added humidity
Moderation or setting of the glaze or sheen
Wet fixing in length and width
WHAT ARE THE FUNCTIONS OF DECATIZING WRAPPERS ?
Separation of the fabric layers to avoid pressure marking
Transfer of surface pressure to reduce the thickness of the fabric
Conducting the steam (heat and humidity in and through the fabric)
Gentle,crease-free, low-tension transport of the fabric when unrolling or rolling up the reel
The type and the surface of the wrapper affect the feel and sheen effect
CALCULATION OF THE WRAPPER LENGTH IN BOILER DECATIZING
You can very easily calculate the length of the wrapper needed in the decatizing process
and the amount of wool cloth which can be treated in one go by using the following Excel table: at input enter the parameters of your decatizing boiler and of the material. After
making the input you can read the required length of the wrapper and the length of the wool cloth which can be finished in the red-edged field.
