Texturizing and Voluminizing
Texturized and voluminized products have various end uses because of their valuable characteristics, including aesthetics, fire resistance, dimensional stability and improved thermal insulation.
- Wall covering fabrics
- Curtains, veils, wall hangings, vertical blinds, etc.
- Thermal insulation
- Gas filtration
- Anticorrosion reinforcement
- Clutch disc, brake linings
Description of the process
In the texturizing process, the glass yarns or strands are overfed into a nozzle in which a pressurized air stream creates turbulence that causes the formation of loops and imparts a moderate bulk.
In the voluminizing process, the glass yarns or strands run through the air nozzle without overfeeding, which creates a high bulk effect desired in various applications.
