POLYPRINT® - Textile

Polygal AG offers a wide range of printing thickeners for various dye classes, textile fibers and printing processes. Besides their use in traditional fabric printing, chemically modified guar gums, tamarind kernel powders, starches and alginates are also used in digital and carpet printing.

Print quality depends strongly on the thickener that is used. Modern textile printing thickeners must meet the highest standards for viscosityrheology, purity and washability. The POLYPRINT® brand enjoys an outstanding reputation around the world, and is often used in this market as a synonym for printing thickeners.

In addition to printing thickeners, Polygal AG also produces components for the sizing of warp yarn in weaving applications.
