Press release from: TMR-Reseach Report

Sizing agent is a substance that is commonly applied to fibers to impart desired qualities. Sizing agents are generally used to reduce porosity of fibers in order to make them suitable for printing. These chemicals increase the resistance properties of fiber to the penetration of water or other liquid. Sizing agents can be broadly categorized into two types: surface sizing agents and internal sizing agents. Alkyl succinic anhydride (ASA), rosin, and alkyl ketene dimer (AKD) are the most commonly used internal sizing agents, whilestyrene maleic anhydride (SMA), styrene acrylic acid (SAA), styrene acrylic emulsion (SAE), gelatin, polyurethane (PUR), and ethylene acrylic acid (EAA) are the popular surface sizing agents. Sizing agents are also classified into natural and synthetic, based on the raw materials used in their manufacture. Sizing agents are mostly used in the textile and paper industries. Fiber is treated with sizing agents during papermaking.This improves the ink-holding capacity, therebyincreasing the printability of the paper. Furthermore, sizing agents improve the quality of yarn used in the textile industry.This prevents the breakage of fibers.
