M-Tec Introduces Finish-Tec

Germany-based M-Tec Maschinen-baugesellschaft Mbh has introduced the finish-tec range for finishing
elastic and synthetic fabrics. The finish-tec range integrates pressing, decatising, setting and
shrinking.Intensive steaming under high surface pressure is the first step, followed by a
steaming/shrinking treatment and, finally, a shock-cooling. This procedure allows a multiplicity of
variants of the fabrics final appearance regarding touch, luster, volume and degree of fixation.
Steam and heat treatments release latent tensions, guaranteeing minimum residual shrinkage values
in the warp and weft.
