A process of passing cloth between rollers (or callendars) under heat and pressure to produce a variety of effects or textures in a fabric.
A finishing step where the cloth is subject to heat and pressure to improve bias stability.
Process of smoothing the surface of the paper between the rollers (or calendars).
Finishing process by which paper, plastics, rubber, or textiles are pressed into sheets and smoothed, glazed, polished, or given a moiré or embossed surface. The material is passed through a series of rollers; the resulting surface depends on the pressure exerted by the rollers, on their temperature, composition, and surface designs, and on the type of coating or glaze previously applied to the material to be calendered.
A method of surface-finishing paper between polished rollers, after the paper leaves the paper machine, or at the end of the drying process.
The process of finishing a sheet of dried paper by pressing it between the highly polished metal cylinders of a calenar "stack". The calender smoothes the paper by compression. See also finish, papermaking, smoothness, super-calendering.
Making paper smooth by pressing it between highly polished metal rollers.
Process of passing the web of paper between polished metal rolls to increase gloss and smoothness.
Process where PVC is formed into sheet through heated rollers
The processing of the compound into sheeting via the heated roller system of a calender.
A manufacturing process by which polymeric membranes and sheeting are produced. The finished material is formed by passing it between the nips of a series of large counter-rotating steel rollers which produces a film or sheet of uniform thickness. The device used forthis purpose is a calender.
process of pressing to smooth or glaze sheet of paper during the finishing process.
The process of forming silicone into uniform thin sheets.
In papermaking, the process of pressing paper in order to give it a smooth surface, running it between rollers under strong pressure. Supercalendering produces an even smoother, polished finish.
To impart a smooth finish on paper by passing the web of paper between polished metal rolls to increase gloss and smoothness.
Calendering is a term the paper mills refer to, which represents a process the paper goes through at the end of the paper machine or off line from the paper machine. The base paper stock goes through a series of steel rollers that apply pressure to both sides of the base paper stock to determine the smoothness and density of the paper that is desired. By calendaring the base paper stock prepares it for the additional coating that are needed to make a high quality photo inkjet paper.
A process by which fabric or wire is passed through a pair of heavy rollers to reduce thickness, to flatten the intersections of the threads/wires and to control air permeability. Rollers are heated when calendering synthetic materials.
A mechanical finishing process for fabrics used to produce special effects, such as high luster, glazing, moiré', and embossed effects.
The process of pressing paper through rollers (usually of hardened, polished metal) to increase its surface smoothness.
The process of finishing a sheet of dried paper by pressing it between the highly polished metal cylinders of a calendar "stack". The calendar smooths the paper by compression.
A process that takes place at the end of the papermaking machine. The paper is passed through a stack of steel rollers which gives it more uniform thickness (caliper). By varying the number of rolls used, and the pressure applied, degrees of smoothness can be achieved.
The process of finishing a sheet of dry paper by pressing it between a set of chilled metal rollers, generally at the end of a papermaking machine. The paper passes through these rollers to increase the smoothness and gloss of its surface.
Producing rubber in continuous sheets by processing it through a series of rollers. Harboro does not specialise in this sector of the industry.
the process of passing the paper through metal rolls, leveling and smoothing the surface while adding gloss to the finish of the paper. See also supercalender.
To press or smooth material between rollers
The process of pressing or smoothing material between rollers.
A process for making thin sheets of plastic or rubber in which a heated plastic or rubber compound is squeezed between heavy rollers.
A mechanical finishing process where fabric is passed between heated rolls under pressure in order to produce special effects such as a glaze, polish, moiré, or embossed surface.
A process of passing cloth between rollers ( or"calendars"), usually under carefully controlled heat and pressure, to produce a variety of surface textures or effects in fabric.
A mechanical finishing process for fabric to produce a smooth, glazed appearance and an improved hand. This is the last finishing process that prepares fabric for cutting.
Technique for processing plastics into sheets or film: the material is heated and mixed to obtain a viscous paste, which is passed through a series of rollers until it forms a continuous sheet, and gradually cooled before being wound into a roll.
A specific process used to manufacture some membranes such as PVC.
The mechanical treatment of a coated sheet which renders smoothness and gloss-passing paper through a series of alternating steel and cotton rolls to smooth the surface and control bulk.
The process whereby the fabric is passed between two rollers which apply a large amount of pressure to the fabric. The result is similar to ironing--the fabric comes out smooth.
Operation carried out by means of a calender on the, at least partially, dried paper or board, with the aim of improving the finish, the process permitting some control of the thickness of the paper
A manufacturing process by which some polymeric membranes and other sheetings are produced.
A paper term used to describe the process in which paper is passed between a stack of cast-iron rolls at the end of a paper machine to increase the smoothness and gloss of the paper surface.
In papermaking, the smoothing action of rollers on the paper surface.
In papermaking, the process of passing paper between the calender rolls to increase the paper's smoothness.
A form of extrusion using two or more counter rotating rolls in which film and sheet is produced by squeezing a hot, viscous material between them.
A process for finishing fabrics in which such special effects as high luster, glazing, embossing, and moiré are produced.
process of pressing a sail cloth between hot steel rollers under high pressure to flatten it and make it more durable
Calendering is a finishing process applied to textiles and paper. During calendering rolls of the material are passed between several pairs of heated rollers, to give a shiny surface. Extruded PVC sheeting is produced in this manner as well other plastics.
