Fiber preparation and conditioners form a film on fiber surfaces that reduces surface friction during production with natural fibers. Without this protective film it would be impossible to achieve high production speeds in the textile industry. But these same conditioners play a major role in shrinkage of natural fibers when the fabric is cleaned.
Openair® plasma technology facilitates organic silicon fiber preparation. This unique plasma coating effectively protects the fibers and prepares them for high-speed production.
Since no chemical conditioners are used in this new process, the fabric produced will not shrink in subsequent cleaning. The consumer is rewarded with higher quality.
