* Concentration of Careguard-6(HF) to be taken on the basis of durability requirement.


  1. It is recommended to prewash the substrate to be treated with 1 g/l Saragen-DAM at 80-85 deg.C for 20-30 min. to remove traces of residual impurities to get excellent results.
  2. After padding and drying if fabric is kept overnight before curing, results will be further improved.
  3. Compatible with Flame Retardent finish (Pre-trial is recommeded).
  4. Addition of 5-10 g/l Crosslink-SC (Conc) is optional and recommended for achieving higher durability.
  5. Water-oil repellent finish can be combined with resin finish using 30g/l Saralink-ULF + 6g/l MgCl2 + 20g/l Saralube-2975.

Sequence of addition :


- Avoid high speed and continuous stirring.

- Avoid silicone based softeners in the finishing recipe.

- Pre trial with Careguard-6(HF) is recommended with coating chemicals.
