Oxford Instruments Webinar

Optimizing Spin Finish Coatings Yield and Performance Across The Synthetic Fibers Industry

This interactive webinar will highlight how the manufacturing yield, quality and performance of fibers is optimized through rapid, accurate, solvent free characterization of spin finish and related coatings.

Sharing case studies, we will review how high sustainability benchtop Time Domain NMR (TD-NMR) methods save time and money across products from carpet fibers to high performance nonwoven fabrics.

Come and join us to discover:

• How TD-NMR operates and replaces chemical extraction.
• Why process and quality control are so dramatically improved.
• The key outputs for oil based, fluorinated and elastomeric coatings.
• How to quantify manufacturing cost savings and product quality benefits.

From tracking coating consistency to identifying failure, we will highlight how key outcomes which include reduced surface friction, flexibility, and static elimination, enhance manufacturing output and product performance.

With uses expanding in non-woven products including sportswear, bulletproof vests and even to parachutes landing an autonomous vehicle on Mars, this webinar is a must for anyone involved across textile lifecycle from coatings formulation to process
