Today’s textile industry faces many conflicting challenges.
Improved efficiencies and cost reductions through shorter product cycles need to be achieved. At the same time the highest quality standards need to be maintained, while providing continuous innovation in yarn and garment processing of natural and man-made fibres.
Aside from the beneficial characteristics of the surfactants used (leveling agents, scouring agents, wetting agents etc.), they are also responsible for the formation of foam during almost every stage of production. For instance, production will not be able to proceed at optimum speed if the jet fills with foam. So, care must be taken that the applied antifoam does not negatively impact the fabric quality by staining the fabric or does not disturb the machine runability.
