Kanecaron®/Protex® can be processed in common textile systems such as spinning, dyeing and molding.
Essentially, the same process that is used for other fibers can be applied to Kanecaron®/Protex® however the following conditions are suggested to assure a better yarn quality.
Beautiful and long lasting colors can be obtained with cationic dyes as with regular acrylic fibers. The following is a recommended condition for stock dye.
Kanecaron®/Protex® is a suitable fiber for molding. Within the temperature range of 120-130 deg C the elongation shows the maximum performance and can be molded with a deep draw over 100% depth on the fabric.
Kanecaron®/Protex® keeps a molded shape without stress against other common fabrics, such as knits or the usage of the elastomeric yarn that will revert to the original shape after tension is removed.
