PRINTING

SNF’s FLOPRINT™ line of thickeners allows for higher printing speeds, superior performance, increased color yield, and higher shear rate.  FLOPRINT is compatible with most classes of dyes and natural thickeners.

DIGITAL PRINTING

SNF’s FLOLUX™ line of pretreatment chemicals is used for digitally printed textiles including cotton, polyester, and poly-cotton blends.

  • FLOLUX™ DTP is a high quality anti-migrant developed by SNF to be added to the padding dye bath.  During the drying process, FLOLUX™ DTP prevents the migration of dyestuffs across the fabric and results in more uniform dyeing
  • FLOLUX™ PCR is a high-quality resin without formaldehyde.  This resin is used to increase value of garments by creating smooth and permanent wrinkles in given areas of the garment

SIZING

SNF’s FLOSIZE™ line of products is used for sizing of warp yarns, and is a complete replacement for natural warp size such as starch.

AUXILIARIES

SNF’s FLOFIX™ products are used for dyeing formaldehyde-free products.  This line of cationizing agents was developed to obtain special dyeing effects and improve color yield on cellulosic fibers dyed with pigments.

RHEOLOGY CONTROL

FLOPRINT™ thickeners offer numerous functional benefits.

Their properties are:

  • To hold the paste in the screen
  • To let the paste go through the screen when the shearing force is applied
  • To control the amount of paste that is transferred
  • To build up the viscosity quickly after the shearing force is removed
  • To hold the paste in position on the cloth against capillary forces.
  • To prevent flushing or bleeding
  • To allow the paste to penetrate to the required extent To allow the dye to get into the fiber (substantive dye printing) or
  • To allow the binder to cross-link (pigment printing)
