Batting Terminology-Word of the Day

Glazine Finish-Typically the batting is passed through a mechanical process that applies heat to the surface of the web. The surface is “sealed” or “glazed”. This helps minimize the potential for bearding, bunching and shifting and results in good stability. Not to be confused with Stearns and Foster’s (Mountain Mist) Glazene® finish which is a water soluble starch based product that is applied to the surfaceof their cotton batting and washes away when laundered.
