Icofix Heat-Sets Tubular Fabrics

Icomatex, Spain, presents Icofix, a tubular unit that heat-sets tubular fabrics and open-width fabrics, such as elastane, and other fabrics that are heat-set prior to dyeing.Icofix uses the same principle as a tenter: A heat-setting chamber is fueled by gas, electricity, steam or thermal oil to achieve high temperatures. The operator can control the permanence of the fabric and also can overfeed the fabric.

Icomatex also has designed a new opener, which it claims offers advantages over calender heat-setting, controlling the width of the opened fabric and achieving better results with regard to edge marks.
