Goller, a member of the CHTC Fong’s International Group, will introduce the new Knit Merc for achieving the highest quality mercerization of knitted fabrics at the lowest tension and with under 3 per cent variation in dimensional stability with high grade fabrics, at this month’s ITMA. Mercerization is an essential textile finishing step for all cotton and cellulosic fibre-based fabrics in order to improve dye uptake and tear strength while reducing fabric shrinkage and imparting a silk-like lustre to the materials.
