ElasTechs® Staple Yarn Sizing Agents are truly one-piece products, tailored to specific yarns and requiring no additives. ElasTechs® Staple Yarn Sizing Agents contain all additives for a superior performing sizing agent – including aids for optimum lubrication, enhanced film elasticity, foaming control, reduced size migration, self-leveling film formation, static electricity control, and more. ElasTechs® Staple Yarn Sizing Agents are available in strength, from 2307 at 14% binder equivalence to 2362 at 60% binder equivalence. The Sizing Agents come standard at medium viscosity (MV). Each product is available in low (LV) and high viscosity (HV) versions for conditions requiring it, such as high-pressure squeeze, over-crowded size boxes, low wet pick up, very hairy yarn, etc. For customers with restrictions on using Polyvinyl Alcohol, each product is available Polyvinyl Alcohol free.


ElasTechs® Staple Yarn Sizing Binders are a range of polymers used with starch and starch derivatives to size virtually any type of yarn. The products are primarily formulated to improve adhesion, abrasion resistance, film strength, and elasticity. For customers with restrictions on using Polyvinyl Alcohol, each product is available Polyvinyl Alcohol free. ElasTechs®Staple Yarn Sizing Binders contain various sizing additives to compensate for less-than-ideal physical properties of starch, including weakness and brittleness of film, low resistance to abrasion, and poor adhesion to the yarn.
