Fluffing Silicone emulsion
Fluffing Silicone emulsion PR160
Use: Fluffing Silicone emulsion PR160 is a special organic silicone emulsion and the main raw material of the compounding system of Raising Agent for napped fabric. It can be used for Raising, Shearing & Emerizing finishing of cotton, T/C, polyester, nylon and its blended fabrics. imparts a velvety, soft, smooth and voluminous handle to raised fabric. It can be used in combination with flake emulsion in different proportions according to the fabric condition.
Napped fabric is made through the process of napping, also called raising or brushing. The surface of a flat woven or knit textile is treated with brushes to create a soft, fuzzy texture. Familiar examples include flannel, moleskin, and polar fleece.
Fleece is made by napping a polyester fabric which results in increased thickness and establishing air pockets for insulation. Fleece offers a superior warmth-to-weight ratio in comparison to Merino wool but inferior to goose down or synthetic fill materials.
Napping is a process that may be applied to woollens, cottons, spun silks, and spun rayons, including both woven and knitted types, to raise a velvety, soft surface. The process involves passing the fabric over revolving cylinders covered with fine wires that lift the short, loose fibres, usually from the weft yarns, to the surface, forming a nap. The process, which increases warmth, is frequently applied to woollens and worsteds and also to blankets.
