@2spin® is a range of master batch additives that can bring different functionalities to a fibre as: Soft Touch feeling, Flame retardant properties, Surface modifiers or Tailor made solutions, like dyeable PP.
@2spin® functional master batches are added during the extrusion process prior to the melting of the polymer by means of a dosing unit. The master batches are user friendly; the consumption can easily be monitored during the production process. Different @2spin® products are available for different polymers as PP, PA, PES or PTT.
Compared to classic technologies for treating textiles fibres, @2spin® functional master batches have several advantages:
1) The functionality is locked into the fibre, which makes it more durable.
2) The production technology - integrating the functionality during the extrusion process - is more sustainable and environmental friendly as it does not require any additional water or energy, which is the case with traditional topical finishes.
3) There is no influence on the final fabric in terms of weight, softness or colour.
Compared to using functional polymers the use of a master batch provides more flexibility in the production and reduces working capital.
