The fabrics we work with are all kinds of cotton fabrics, acrylic polyester, polyamide and all kinds of possible mixtures of these materials.
Prior to the main operations of the services we perform, there is a common process for all of them.
The preparation of the fabric. It is a previous chemical preparation through which all the tissues that are going to be treated later pass. In this part we proceed to desizing the cotton, degreasing and bleaching the fabric.
Once prepared, the fabric goes through the processes of either dyeing or printing, although it can also go directly to finishing, in the case of previously treated fabrics.
Depending on the type of material, the bleaching pretreatment must be adapted to obtain the best results required by each fiber. If the fiber is of natural origin (cotton, linen, viscose, jute…), a chemical preparation is carried out consisting of singeing, scouring and continuous bleaching (pad-bach) which will eliminate impurities from dead fibres, enzymes used when weaving and unify the different shades of the original fiber.
If the origin is synthetic (pes, modified pes, polypropylene…) a continuous washing is carried out with appropriate formulations studied to eliminate enzymes from weaving.
It is very important to have a good preparation of the fabric, since it guarantees the reproduction of subsequent dyeing and printing.
We have one of the most complete discontinuous dyeing plants (multiflows, autoclaves and jiggers). Completing this section with continuous dyeing with pad-dry and pad bach.
Dyes that we carry out after a previous study of the fabric, and the use of the optimal dyes for each fiber, direct, reactive, dispersed and indanthren, development of new collections, advice on colors, trends and types of dyes according to the fiber to be dyed.
Once the collection is approved, we have machinery with a small capacity of 50kg to develop it at an industrial level.
Continuous:The Thermosol process is a continuous dyeing process that is based on a mechanical adsorption of the dye on the fiber, where insoluble dyes and pigments are deposited on the fiber. It has to go through a subsequent thermosetting to fix the dye in the fiber. Once the polyester part is fixed and dyed, the cotton fiber is dyed, the fabric is immersed in a color bath and squeezed into the foulard, this has to be left to rest to develop the coloTinr and after this time proceed wash to remove traces of dyes.
Reactive (cotton) and disperse (polyester) dyes are used.
Discontinuous: Rope dyeing (multiflows) machines from 50mts to 750mts for dyeing and flat dyeing (autoclaves and high temperature jiggers) from 150mts.
Dye for each fiber:
Cotton- direct, reactive and indantrenes. The choice between the 3 types of dyes will be given by the fastness to washing and light that the client requires. Polyester-disperse, acrylic-cationic, polyamide-acids and mixtures of the above.
Rotary Lyonnaise, with pigments and disperse dyes. They have machines of up to 13, we work with widths from 150cm to 320cm and with different rapport sizes of 65 and 91 cm. Subsequently, it is stored in cylinders in our warehouse with the utmost care for each product.
We design and develop sketches according to trends focused on the needs of the market and customers. Advice on the engraving of small and cylinders.
We bet on the latest technology in digital printing, which opens a range of infinite possibilities in designs, colors, footage…
We have pigment ink machines and reactive inks, which depending on the final use of the fabric, our human team will recommend the most suitable one. Stamping up to a width of 3.30 m.
Pigment inks – guarantee very good light fastness, ideal for home decoration fabrics (curtains, upholstery…).
Reactive inks- High fastness to washing and rubbing, being the most requested and recommended for fashion (clothing).
Here takes place the final process of the articles coming from the dyeing, printing and also those that have been previously treated, in which case they come directly from the previous chemical preparation.
Among the finishes and depending on the fabrics, we have: softened, primed, wrinkle-free finishes, water-repellent, fire-retardant, calendered, chinz, sanfor, laminated. Likewise, the feasibility of incorporating a line of technical textile services is currently being analysed.
