Durable coatings for textile manufacturers.
Impreglon UK works with some of the leading textile companies. Often the processes involved in creating the fabric rely on a combination of adhesive, heat and pressure. A common maintenance problem is that adhesives can squeeze from the edges of the web and build up on the roll, causing potential textile defects. Adhesive can also grab the web to cause roll wrap-arounds. Impreglon UK have a number of coatings which are both hard wearing and will eliminate adhesive build up.
Drying cylinders are another area where Impreglon UK is able to provide a cost saving. Our coatings prevent the wet or damp web from sticking to the drying can (also known as drying cylinders or drying rolls) whilst giving a long operational lifespan. A key to the success of Impreglon coatings is in understanding the precise nature of the problems encountered with drying cans. Impreglon UK have coatings that have been designed to withstand thermal cycling for example, which is often a cause for premature failure of the coating.
Printing onto the textile presents a new list of problems such as contamination from one ink colour to the next or lost time through labourious cleaning of dried or cured ink on application equipment. Needless to say Impreglon UK can resolve any printing problem. The range of parts Impreglon UK coats for the textile industry is comprehensive and includes rolls, drying cans, pumps, sizing plant, ink trays, ink pumps, gears and doctor chambers. Please note that we don't coat the textile materials themselves, just the equipment used to make the textiles.
