Warp Sizing

Improve weaving efficiency with competitive cost

On the weaving machine, the warp yarns are subjected to three frictions: stretch, strain, and abrasion. Thus, the sizing of warp yarn is essential to reduce breakage of the yarn to ensure that weaving machine will have less production loss due to room stoppages. The traditional sizing formula for cotton-yarns contains starch, PVA, acrylic, and wax. Starch and PVA perform the same film former and binder functions. However, the textile industry prefers to reduce PVA in sizing formula because it is synthetic, difficult in de-sizing, not environmentally friendly, and high in production cost.

SMS can help reduce PVA in textile warp sizing with high quality modified tapioca starch containing various viscosity ranges with excellent adhesion and easy de-sizing, especially for cotton yarn. SMS will work closely with you for detail application advice in close consultation with the factory personnel to meet the specific requirements of each factory.
