Function of Oil
  • It lubricates the fibre
  • It helps fibre to move freely during processing
  • It makes the fibre soft and gives more spinning property
  • It cleans the pins and rollers of the machine
Function of Water
  • It increases extensibility of fibre which resists fibre breakage
  • It gives sufficient dampness and flexibility to the fibre
Function of Emulsifier
  • It removes temporary hardness of water
  • It helps emulsifier to remain in stable form
  • It reduces surface tension
  • It makes droplet formation easier
  • It stabilizes the emulsion
Function of Urea
  • It helps in emulsion penetration into the fibre
  • It helps fibre to soften quickly
