The process which is used to remove loose threads and short fiber-ends from smooth-surfaced fabrics and is also used to raise a nap on knits and woven fabrics is called brushing.
Some fabrics like velvet have a naturally raised (fuzzy) surface and this is referred to as the nap. The term nap is also used to describe other surfaces that look like the surface of a napped cloth. In the finishing process of manufacturing textiles, after the cloth is woven, it goes through processes such as washing, fulling, raising, and trimming the nap. There are several ways to ‘raise the nap’, most of which involve wire brushes such as raising cards and involved special brushing machines to get the best finish. During raising, the fabric surface is treated with sharp teeth to lift the surface fibres, thereby imparting hairiness, softness and warmth. Flannelette is a well-known example of this type of material. PT. Mewah Niagajaya is specialists in this process.
Our color lab features one of the most advanced pieces of equipment that allows for accurate color matching and fastness requirements. Automatic dispensing systems together with state-of-the-art dyeing machines make us a leading provider of color matching services for the textile industry.
We use digital spectrophotometers for color matching, and various other testing pieces of equipment to assess fabric performance and fastness. Our on site lab regularly performs quality tests on all finished fabrics. Examples of some of the tests performed are shrinkage, width, yield, stretch and recovery, torque, wet and dry crock, 2A wash test, burst, and wicking.
Completion of the calendar is intended to obtain fabrics with flat surfaces, smooth and shiny. Good results will be obtained if the clothes are in a plastic state, which is in a state of humid and hot.
Scouring is a chemical leaching process carried out on a cotton cloth to remove wax and dirt non - natural fibers (e.g. remnants of seed fragments) of the fiber and any foreign objects that are soiling or dirt. Scouring process can be done in an iron vessel called Kiers.
Finishing also called Completion, namely textile processing process after the preparation process improvement, dyeing and printing, physically and or chemically to improve the quality of the textiles.
Fabrics can have the selvedges trimmed and heat sealed by means of ultrasonic cutting devices on each of our two gas-fired Stenters. After a continued programme of investment in our finishing facilities, we now offer a market leading range of chemical and calender finishes on all synthetic fabrics including cellulose acetate, water repellent fluorocarbon and antistatic technical fabrics.
