Starches for the textiles industry
STARCH is the product most widely used for sizing of staple fiber yarns made of wool, rayon, linen and for mixtures of these fibers with manmade fibers. AGRANA starch products are biologically degradable special starches which, using ultrafiltration plants, can be recovered even when used in combination with synthetic sizing agents.
AGRANA's produced SOLAMYL® 9570 and SOLAMYL® 9636 are made out of potato starch and are hot water soluble.
AMITROLIT® products are also made out of potato starch and are cold water soluble.
AGRANA STARCH products can be used as thickener for dye pastes and also to increase the brilliance and ensure sharper contours. AGRANA starch products for fabrics and knitwear made of cotton, viscose, manmade and mixed weaves.
AMITROLIT® products for textile printing and belt-adhesives are made out of corn and potato starch.
DIGITAL INKJET PRINTING is having a major impact on the processes of textile printing and is on the way to transform this industry. It allows for single pieces, medium-quantity as well as, thanks to the steep technological development curve even longrun alternatives to screen printed fabric.
- In conventional analog screen printing modified starch ethers are used directly in the printing paste to obtain contour sharpness together with color brilliance.
- The pre-treatment of the garment has a significant impact on the printing result. AGRANA offers special modified starches as antimigrant to prevent bleeding to be used in the preparation of textile substrates as alternative to alginates.
