Knitting Oil
Introduction of Knitting Oil :
Knitting Oil For making variety of hosiery fabrics, automatic circular knitting machines are being used by modern knitting industry. In these automatic circular knitting machines, numerous fibers come through small guided holes from the top of the machine. The interloping of these fibers is carried out with the continuous movement of one fiber which moves horizontally in circular motion and a cylinder shaped "grey" cloth is produced. For the required lubrication of these machines, the knitting oil with viscosity grade, VG 12, 22 and 32 are recommended for this application.
Application of Knitting Oil :
Knitting Oil have been developed from high quality light coloured mineral oils with excellent resistance to oxidation and fortified with special additives for imparting excellent property of scourability, (that is, the self removal of the oil stain from the final fabric during the wet processing), along with antiwear and antirust characteristics. Besides the above characteristics, these knitting oils have long service life without the generation of sludge and acid which increase the wear of the machines. These knitting oil also possess excellent non-foaming, antirust qualities and unique lubricity characteristics.
