UK Fabric Processor Bolsters Efficiency With Texcoat G4 System

Pincroft, a textile dyeing, printing and finishing company, bolstered its efforts to achieve efficient and sustainable textile operations by adopting Baldwin Technology’s innovative TexCoat G4 system.

“The UK-based company offers a wide range of technical finishes including flame-retardant treatments, anti-mosquito solutions and durable water repellents,” Baldwin said in a statement.

As a provider of finishing solutions for workwear and military fabrics, Pincroft holds itself to the highest quality expectations and compliance standards, ensuring that its products deliver superior performance.

Since installing Baldwin’s TexCoat G4 system, Pincroft has reduced finishing chemistry usage by 20 percent with no waste or colour changeovers and no need for periodic pad renewals.

It has also reduced water consumption by 50 percent as a result of increased chemistry concentration enabled by precision spray technology.

Additionally, with TexCoat G4, productivity has increased by 50 percent, due to lower wet pick up, allowing for a significantly higher line speed.

“By significantly reducing time needed in the stenter, the TexCoat G4 system uses just 10 percent of the energy required by the traditional pad finishing process,” the US based company added.

TexCoat’s precision spray application system has a precision-spray technology, to evenly apply water or chemistries to one or both sides of a moving web roll of fabric or other material.

It uses an application system that spans the width of the web with evenly spaced spray nozzles.

This ‘non-contact’ method of applying liquids to surfaces is highly efficient and eco-friendly, because the minimum required amount of water or chemistries can be used.

Texcoat G4 can be utilised for a number of fabric finishes that include vector protection (permethrin), antimicrobial, crease resistance, water repellency, stain and soil release and flame retardancy.

It also enables single- and double-sided finishing for fabrics in demanding industries such as automotive, aerospace, defense, home furnishings, oil and gas, mining and utilities.
