<strong>Precitex launched new products in India ITME 23</strong>

SLX Apron

SLX apron is perfect blend of mechanics and the polymer chemistry. It evolves making use of basic concept of apron function – uniform feeding of material to the front roll nip. Important thing to achieve this very goal begins with movement of apron. The design and the construction of the apron inner layer play a crucial role in this regard.

The rubber compound and finally alkyl and alkene halides bringing the coefficient of friction further reduced. This benefited in making SLX apron stand with its name – apron for super long frame.

The outer layer compound is designed to support the hold and release of yarn and to control the unsupported yarn to the front roll nip.

The selection of grade of polymer, the chemicals are unique to retain after ageing characteristics both mechanical and chemicals for long time, thereby to say apron has excellent ozone and flex crack along with the wear and tear resistance.

The manufacturing tools – the mandrels – are specially designed for PRECITEX, the process of fabrication, the compounding and mixing in latest machines followed by control vulcanization offer consistency all the way.


Precitex has tradition and history of making successful front-line cots. It has started with age-old cot OG 65 followed by series of cots 63 and 65 A shore cots: XP 63, HP B 65, HP BR 65 each has their unique characteristics.

The launch of the new AE 63 at India ITME is yet another feather and now shaping up as THE CROWN in the PRECITEX SOFT COT FAMILY. The specialty of AE63 lies in the selection of unique polymer and its curing system. This has been achieved by persistent working of PRECITEX R & D in coordination with best global polymer and chemical manufacturers.

The AE 63, with hardness as usual at 63 Shore A, has very high rebound resilience and minimum compression set properties delivering substantially high yarn properties.

At the Precitex ITME booth, it was very well demonstrated that two rubber products with same shore hardness of 63 Shoe A can have highly differentiating resilience and it is this high resilience in AE 63 which contributes to a superior yarn quality.

The higher resilience/bounce of AE 63 ensures that the cot area under top arm pressure deforms less and immediately bounces back to its diameter thereby reducing the hysteresis loss and improving the yarn quality. Despite the hardness designed at 63 Shore A, the abrasion resistance is maintained to give the desired life and the curing system slows the ageing effect retaining the compound properties over the life of the cot. With both the above new generation products, Precitex continues to work on its philosophy of providing an “Enhanced Spinning” experience to the spinning community globally.
