Stamford VIVISIZE is a colorless, inert liquid sizing that will restore garments to their original crispness, improve finishing qualities and improve customer acceptance of your finished product. It may be applied by any of the following methods:
METHOD I SEPARATE SIZING BATH IN THE CLEANING MACHINE
This method is for plants that have an auxiliary tank available on their machine where solvent may be pumped into the washer from this tank and drained and extracted back to the tank. With this method, the machine may be programmed to size only those loads desired. Fill the auxiliary tank with enough new or distilled solvent to give an adequate level in the washer. Charge the solvent in the tank with the desired amount of VIVISIZE; normally 1-2 oz. per gallon. Then:
METHOD II CHARGING THE WORKING SOLVENT
Charge the entire filter-washer system with 11/4 oz. VIVISIZE for every gallon of working solvent in the system. For each gallon of new or distilled solvent added to the system, add 11/4 oz. VIVISIZE.
Make sure the VIVISIZE is in solution before circulating through the filter. The best method is to pump solvent into the wheel and add the proper amount of sizing through the door. Operate the wheel for 1 minute to agitate and then drop to base tank and circulate solvent through the filter for 5 minutes to distribute the sizing throughout the solvent system. A charging chart is available from Fabritec or your distributor for maintaining a 1% charge.
METHOD III DIP TANK
Add 2 to 6 oz. VIVISIZE to each gallon of solvent in the dip tank, depending on the results desired. Mix well.
Immerse garments, drain and extract lightly.
Dry as usual. Keep tank at room temperature and tightly covered when not in use.
NOTE: Make sure the operation of your dip tank complies with local, state and federal environmental regulations.
