English term or phrase: sizing
For example, a cellulose ether may exhibit low solubility in alcohol. Thus, a dispersion of CE in alcohol allows the preparation of high solids content with low viscosity that are stable at room temperature, for example. However, the sizing deposited from dispersion of alcohol and CE is incoherent and weak, because much of the CE remains in the dispersion as discrete particles. Thus, in the absence of water, the sizing does not form a film on the fiber or particle to be sized. A method of incorporating a CE-based sizing on a fiber using a low viscosity sizing solution, providing good add-on, is a longstanding and unresolved need


One advantage is that the surface treatment may be durable and permanently bound to the particulate or fibrous surface and not dissolve in water, preventing migration or leaching of the bio-active component or passive inhibitor. Also, in one embodiment, the fibers may be treated prior to weaving of a textile, eliminating the need for a separate step of sizing the fibers prior to spinning and/or weaving textiles.
