Oils and additives are used in textile production to make the fibres and threads more elastic and less sticky. This allows greater machine speeds resulting in a high quality product.
However these oils and additives are detrimental to the finishing process. For this reason all textiles are washed thoroughly before processing begins. We have numerous machines with varying widths and washing temperatures that are available for this purpose. Depending on the subsequent production process the textiles are then stretched smooth using stenters.
