High Strength Towel

WeVoTex has done some recent developement. A handtowel with strengthened fibres in the groundwarp and weft. The terry part of the towel, which takes care of the moisture absorption, remains100% cotton. You won't notice any difference in usage of the towel, the life of the towel will be longer because of the higher tensile strength, stronger hems and the shorter drying time. Other advantages are less shrinkage and quicker drying during the industrial washing process.

Drying test
Process : industrial washing by tunnel washing
press with 35 Bar, contacttime 100 sec.
temperature last rinse water: 40- 50 °C
drying with natural gas fed tumble-drying (Senking), auto stops at 109°C
outcoming air , equipped with modulating gas regulation en recirculationsystem

H.S.T Standard towel
Drying time 17 min. 7 sec. 20 min. 23 sec.
Reduction drying time in % 1223 - 1027 = 196/ 1223 * 100%
                                             = 16 %

Conclusions
  • Less shrinkage in both length (+/- 2%) and width (+/-2,5%).
  • Higher tensile strengthin warp and weft.
    In weft increase of 50 %, is force of 20 Kg. more than standard towel.
    In warp increase of 30 %.
  • Reduction drying time of 16 %
  • Energy saving of 23 %
