Optimisation of polyester printing with nanoparticles

- Regular disperse dye particles are too big to diffuse in a hydrophobic substrate containing no functional groups such as polyester, but a nanoporticle size disperse dye treated with ultrasound can be printed on polyester fabrics without the addition of a carrier.

Developments in surfactants & their biodegradability

- Conventional surfactants can be replaced with alternatives, which ensure 80 - 90% biodegradability after 24 hours, generate a lower COD, have a high dispersing power and very low foaming power.

Effect of process parameters & machine design on winding

- During clearing and winding the yarn for warping, weaving or knitting it has been found that there is deterioration of certain yarn characteristics like strength, elongation, hairiness etc, and the process parameters thus have substantial influence on the final properties of the yarn.

Advantage Nonwovens
The per capita nonwoven fabric consumption in India, which was 155 gm sometime ago, is expected to touch to 350 gm by 2015 and 600 gm by 2020, whereas the per capita consumption of nonwovens in developed markets such as US and Western Europe is around 3 - 3.5 kg. The global market for nonwovens is around...
