Solvent
treatment

Elimination of oil, wax and grease:
improvement of wetting characteristics
 
Removal of avivage / spin finish:
Reduction of remaining avivage substance on products | Improved adhesion of successive coatings
 
Authenticity improvement of yarn and piece dyed fabrics with dispersion dyes:
Fastness to rubbing EN ISO 105-X12 | wet contact, e.g. fastness to washing, staining
 
Removal of intractable, water-insoluble filth:
Oligomers (streaking)

mechanical
finishing

Singeing: napless finish = clean surface | improved pilling rate
Shearing: napless shearing | velours | duvetine | pile finish
Emerising / brushing: e.g. peach skin, soft grip
Milling: flannel to felt
Washing: full width and rope for quality development
Raising: velours finish | pile finish | duvetine
Decatizing: finish, continue kier decatizing
Crush: crease look
Calendering: low luster - high luster, chintz
Sanforizing: low shrinkage
Crepe: cloqué, seersucker
Pressing: gloss
Tumble: 3D
Hydro fixing/shrinking: stabilization of size
Pile finish
