Sizing Auxiliary

ALPENOL DHC is a Compound Sizing Agent. This new variant has been developed by conducting extensive trials in our laboratory initially over the last couple of years. After successful trials in the laboratory, we have gone ahead and conducted trials at a few of our customers end. This product has been developed keeping in mind the requirement of the user industries for present day as well as looking at the future requirements. On a daily basis the wearing loom manufactures have been modernizing their technology and thereby increasing the weft insertion speed for all types of Air jet & Rapier Looms. At the same time the apparel & home furnishing manufactures are continuous asking for higher density fabrics to be woven at previously unheard-of speed levels. The present requirement thus is for sizing yarn with the minimum size add on percentage so as to be able to reduce the diameter of the yarn which will enable the weaver to keep the cover factor within the limit for weaving high density fabrics on the present-day high-speed looms having weft insertion speed of 1200 picks/min and above. At the same time the adhesive power required to be imparted to the film on the yarn should be strong enough to width stand this higher mind this requirement of the weaver. ALPENOL DHC is specially developed for sizing of dyed yarns and high density Greige fabrics of fine counts for 100% Cotton & 100% Viscose yarns, Modal /Tencel yarns. In the present world of global competition quality and cost both will play vital role and will have the edge over counterparts/competitors. It is for this reason our continuousness devours to research the best in the field and our sincere thanks to our supporter/user mills for giving wholehearted support and cooperation.

How Alpenol DHC is cost efficient:
1. Ability to work Weaving Looms at higher speed than conventional size recipe. Thereby achieving higher fabric production.
2. Advantage in achieving higher efficiency thereby by getting more meters with same fixed cost giving contribution to Straight profit.
3. Better working leads to less weaving damage hence better packing in exports as well as in domestic sorts.
Longer length in export will upgrades the product-demand and image in International market.
4. Better length will bring down the packing cost & labour cost in finish folding department.
5. At the time of processing this fabric requires lesser chemicals for desizing and bleaching. Thereby reducing the desizing cost. At the same time the desizing will be faster thereby reducing the total process time.
6. Saving in dead-loss from 35% to 20%. All mills using this material get between 17% to 20% maximum dead loss.
7. Lower inventory carrying cost as it does not involve more ingredients. Cost of money is a major cost in the present economic scenario.
8. Utilities cost comes down due to lower humidity.

Advantages of using Alpenol DHC:
1. “ALPENOL DHC” being a Compound Sizing Agent does not require additional products to be added to size mix.
2. These products are easy to handle, preparation of paste is simple. They can be applied to all types of spun yarns namely 100% cotton, 100% viscose rayon, Modal/Tencel yarn, 100% spun polyester and also blended yarns like polyester cotton & polyester viscose yarns for different counts and the loom shed efficiency improves remarkably leading to higher cloth production.
3. Less human error in preparation of size mix as only ALPENOL is to be added to water.
4. No sticking of warp yarns to each other because of high moisture % in yarn hence also no shedding
5. It is not prone to mildew formation (Suitable for Export).
6. No pollutant material like PENTA CHLORO PHENOL (PCP) etc. are used, hence no export ban in any foreign countries. Alpenol products are eco-friendly and environment friendly and are also compliant with the stringent pollutant norms of the United States of America and European Union.
7. All variants of Alpenol are GOTS Certified by M/s Control Union, Netherlands as suitable to size organic cotton yarn.
8. It offers lower warp breaks even at 10% low humidity, hence saving in power costs by up to 20% which may amount to Rs. 2 Lac to 3 Lac per month depending upon plant capacity (Saving makes sizing cheaper).
9. Breaking Strength of yarn increases and there is a much lower reduction in elongation property due to very good penetration and pliability of size film over the yarn.
10. Smooth and even outer surface of yarn offers least abrasion to Heralds & Reeds resulting in their longer life.
11. It has given 98% first quality packing even in dyed yarn fabric woven on high-speed Air Jet Looms.
12. Fabric appearance improves, due to lesser number of warp breaks on the looms.
13. Fuller effect on grey fabric.
14. Ductility and malleability of yarn improves.
15. Even & Fault free sized Yarn.
16. Better working condition for worker because of low Humidity.
17. Reduced droppings / dusting on weaving looms.
18. Dead loss percentage would vary from 17-20% depending upon the practice of user mills.
19. No environmental pollution as the BOD & COD is much within the stipulated standard. Hence no effluent problem.
20. These are more effective products particularly for High-speed weaving looms such as Air Jet, Rapier, Suzler (Projectile) where the rate of weft insertion is very high.
