Delivering perfect singeing results

Introduction

The word ‘singe’ literally means ‘to burn superficially’. Technically, singeing refers to the burning off of loose fibres not firmly bound to the yarn and/or fabric structure. Singeing is an important part of pre-treatment consisting of burning off of protruding fiber ends from the surface of the fabric. If not done properly, unclear print patterns, mottled fabric surfaces, and pilling results forming small fluff balls on the surface of the fabric. Textiles materials are most commonly singed in woven or knitted fabric form or in yarn form.

Singeing of a fabric is done in order to obtain a clean fabric surface which allows the structure of the fabric to be clearly seen. Fabrics, which have been singed, soil less easily than un-singed fabrics. The risk of pilling, especially with synthetics and their blends, is reduced in case of singed fabrics. Singed fabrics allow printing of fine intricate patterns with high clarity and detail. The risk of uneven dyeing with singed articles dyed in dark shades is considerably reduced, as randomly protruding fibres are removed in singeing which could cause diffused reflection of light.

Salient Features

  • Effective burner system for ensuring equal distribution of air and gas mixure to ensure an even and uninterrupted flame across the desired fabric width.
  • Three stage burner adjustment - at right angles, at source and at tangent to ensure optimal singeing results.
  • Tapered brick structure for efficient singeing.
  • Automatic flame width adjustment.
  • Optimal distance management between fabric and flame.
