ALGOPLAST

Algoplast is low viscosity modified starch for yarn sizing suitable for both cotton and blended yarn. Algoplast is a highly cost efficient sizing material and is easy to desize by using any conventional de sizing process.

ADVANTAGES

1.         Algoplast imparts a uniform coating to the yarn improving the strength and            flexibility.

2.         Uniform pickup due to excellent flow.

3.         better fibre to fibre bonding due to higher penetration.

4.         Improves the weaving efficiency.

5.         Easy de sizing by and conventional process.
