Solid Ceramic Friction Discs for Texturing Yarns

New Dimensions with proven Cerasoft®G Surfaces

Solid ceramic friction discs for three-axle spindle units in friction texturing of yarns have delivered impressive proof of their powerful performance for decades. Cerasoft®G friction discs set the global standard in this process.

Vollkeramische Friktionsscheiben für die Garn-Texturierung

Solid ceramic friction discs from CeramTec are extremely effective in the continuous operation of friction texturing. They offer a number of decisive advantages compared to friction discs made from other materials:

  • Long service life, thanks to high wear and corrosion resistance
  • Even and consistent yarn quality from position to position
  • No damaging effect from spinning preparations, i.e. free choice of finishing agents
  • No damage to the friction disc even when the yarn continues to run after the spindle has stopped
  • Remarkable flexibility in speed and titer ranges; also successfully used in microfilament production
  • Easy start-up of disc units, particularly at high yarn speeds
  • Universal cleaning options with acids, alkaline solutions, burning at high temperatures or in ultrasonic baths
  • Extremely low build-up of abrasion particles, especially when using Cerasoft®G
  • Ceragol – its innovative disc groove structure makes Ceragol the perfect choice for texturing spun-dyed filament yarns made of polyester, polyamide and other raw materials in texturing

Cerasoft®G Advantages at a Glance:

  • Defined yarn path
  • Improved efficiency
  • Low D/Y ratio possible
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved twisting
  • Yarn count: dtex 30-150
  • Excellent physical yarn properties
  • S and Z-twist with full efficiency
  • Plenty of volume

Outstanding Results with the Cerasoft®G Surface

Cerasoft®G discs with a thickness of 9 mm allow for extremely high speeds. At high yarn speeds, the disc and the yarn run with speed differences that cause conventional disc materials (polyurethane, plasma coatings, nickel/diamond) to either fail completely or fail to give a good texture to the yarn. The development of Cerasoft® and its advancements are the result of very close cooperation between texturing and preparation agent suppliers, and also between equipment and machine makers.

CeramTec friction discs are the global standard in textile machine engineering, have proven themselves through decades of use and are compatible with all spindle systems from major manufacturers such as Barmag, Rieter/ICBT, Rieter Scragg, TMT, Temco, Hongyuan, Jingwei and Haiyuan.
