Silicone in the textile sector
The chemical characteristics of the silicone allow it to be adapted to infinity of forms with the minimum tolerance and maximum precision in molds that will subsequently be able to generate any type of stamping in size and design with maximum accuracy and quality. Its great chemical resistance makes it be used in many applications, especially in contact with toxic and highly corrosive materials. It is a material with low reactivity. In contact with dyes and textile-related products has a magnificent behavior.
It occupies an important place in the areas of stamping, as a means to move the semi-finished or finished garments by the different manufacturing processes on conveyor belts, as well as in the garment itself or as an accessory in the merchandising and correct exposure of the final garments on the hangers. We can also find it in the transfer of dyes through the tinting section or in the form of a container of different materials. Its thermal resistance also guarantees the durability of stamping molds, for example, or the bagging section of finished product in sealing machines.
In Merefsa we can design any project, test and customize according to the needs of our customers.
Mechanics: flexible and resistant to deformation, progressive tearing and shrinkage. It can be adapted to most of the shapes required in a mold for stamping or extruded in profile for the area of thread or garment drag.
Thermal: guarantees durability of this rubber exposed to ranges from -60 ° C to 300 ° C. It is also used in factory fluid transfer within these temperatures. Special THT silicone formulations of very high temperature are applied.
Chemical: The possibility of manufacturing in different hardnesses ranging from 20 to 80 Shore in compact and densities ranging from 0.2 to 0.8 gr / cm3 in sponge silicone guarantee a high quality printing process. Given its chemical stability, it allows to work in contact with highly corrosive materials. Platinum silicone is used in processes that require extreme working conditions, high mechanical resistance. Fluorosilicones can work with most solvents.
Where is it used?
Within this industry, we can find it in the form of a tube as a container and fluid exchanger such as dyes and chemicals. It is also used in the maintenance of machines in isolation and sealing and all those applications in the laboratory.
It is used in the transport of materials and products by the manufacturing plant, in the area of packaging of finished product, in the drag of threads in the machines of fabrics and the drag of garments, in merchandising elements and exhibition of finished articles such as hangers and hangers, stamped... .
Applications: Tubes for transporting liquids, silicone containers, stamping molds of both compact and sponge silicone sheets, shaped profiles for the dragging of garments, non-slip profiles to place at the ends of the hangers, silicone fabric conveyor belts, o-rings, profiles, rollers, for machine maintenance, etc.
