Sustainable finishing for global apparel manufacturer
Baldwin’s “non-contact” method of applying liquids to surfaces is highly efficient and eco-friendly because the minimum required amount of chemicals can be used. It also ensures zero contact between the fabric and the chemistry that is sprayed, eliminating contamination of finishing chemicals by the fabric. When the fabric color changes, the system removes the need to drain the chemical pad/foulard, along with the associated downtime and environmental impact from finishing chemical waste.
The TexCoat system automates chemical changeover including the cleaning sequence between chemicals. The system is flushed with hot water and the new recipe is loaded. This all happens seamlessly with the new recipe selected by a barcode reader that scans the barcode on the work order.
