Pincroft Blazes Trail for Sustainable Textiles with Digital Finishing

June 21, 2023


In the fast-paced world of textile manufacturing, staying ahead of industry trends and meeting customers’ ever-changing demands requires constant innovation and adaptation. Pincroft, a renowned name in the sector, has positioned itself as a leader by embracing technology and leveraging it to the company’s advantage. With a focus on sustainable finishing practices, Pincroft has set its sights on reducing waste and energy consumption, aligning with its commitment to being a responsible finisher.

Working primarily in the workwear and military sectors, Pincroft’s dedication to quality compliance and meeting high standards is evident. However, the company’s range of services include dyeing, printing, technical finishes including FR treatments, anti-mosquito and durable water repellents to name a few, catering to a diverse customer base. This versatility and willingness to explore new possibilities have made Pincroft a trusted partner for companies seeking innovation.

One such breakthrough that caught Pincroft’s attention is Baldwin Technology’s TexCoat ™ G4 system. Introduced to the technology during an industry event, Pincroft recognized its potential and immediately embarked on development work to compare it with conventional finishing techniques.

TexCoat G4 offers precision spray, a disruptive technology that is revolutionizing the traditional pad finishing process. This not only allows for lower chemical pickup but also reduces water consumption and energy required for drying and curing, ultimately enhancing productivity while saving significant resources.

By combining its extensive process knowledge with Baldwin’s TexCoat and chemical provider Archroma’s cutting-edge chemical expertise, Pincroft ensures that it is at the forefront of the industry, delivering high-quality finishes while minimizing environmental impact.

In this enlightening video, we hear from Louise Sheridan, Business Development Manager at Pincroft, who provides invaluable insights into how the company is addressing industry trends and challenges, and how the company is effectively employing technology to meet the evolving needs of its customers.

Additionally, we hear from Ian Rawcliffe, Technical Manager at Pincroft, who shares his experiences with the TexCoat system, highlighting the benefits compared to previous finishing methods.

Lastly, Yiannis Vasilonikolos, Baldwin’s Textile Technologist, R&D, and Michael Schuhmann, Business Development Manager for Finishing at Archroma, provide their expertise on TexCoat and the collaborative efforts behind this groundbreaking technology.
