GOHSENX and GOHSENOL

Textile Applications

GOHSENX has been used as a warp sizing agent and as a fabric processing resin.

Characteristics of GOHSENX

GOHSENX as a warp sizing agent, has excellent film forming properties. The obtained films have excellent flexibility, tough tensile strength, and good elasticity giving excellent resistance to wear, smoothness, and fluff binding properties.

Additionally, as compared with starch, the possibility of decomposition or putrefaction is very low, and fungi rarely develop. Furthermore, G type GOHSENX particularly, has excellent water-solubility and can be easily desized.

Applications as a Fabric Treating Agent

Thermosetting resins such as urea-formaldehyde and melamine-formaldehyde resins are used for finishing of fabrics for shrink-proofness and crease resistance. As GOHSENX chemically crosslinks with thermosetting resins, the addition of 5-10 weight % of GOHSENX to thermosetting resins is effective for avoiding reduction due to finishing of tear strengths of finished fabrics.


On the other hand, GOHSENX is popularly used alone or in combination with urea-formaldehyde and melamine-aldehyde initial condensates. It has also been used as a finishing agent for white fabrics, plain dyed fabrics, and printed fabrics, because rigid and transparent looking finishes are obtained even with a low GOHSENX addition.
