Catfix-511 is a special cationizing agent developed to improve the exhaustion of pigment on cellulosic and cellulosic rich blends. Catfix-511 can also be used for the fixation of indigo and sulphur dyes. It can also be used in pre-treatment of substrate in pigment inkjet printing. Novel effects can be obtained on garments by localised application of Catfix-511, as it has good affinity for anionic dyes.
|Low molecular weight product||Uniform depostion of Catfix-511|
|High cationic charge density product||- High exhaustion rate
- Performance of 1% Catfix-511 is better than conventional product
|Wide pH range||Applicable at pH 5-10|
|Very good affinity for pigment||Less bleeding of pigment during subsequent softening /biopolishing process|
|One step process for lighter shades||- No/less quantity of binder require
- Saving in energy and time
|Formaldehyde free||Suitable for Oekotex and baby wear|
|Physical appearance||Colourless to pale yellow clear to hazy liquid|
|pH of 1% solution||4 +/- 1|
|Miscibility||Miscible with water|
|Compatibility||Compatible with cationic and nonionic products|
|Stability||Stable to dilute acids and dilute alkalies|
The fabric to be cationzed should be free from anionic impurities (*see below)
1. Treat substrate with below mentioned dosages of Catfix-511 at 50 deg.C for 20 mins.
Pigment depth Catfix-511 to be taken:
|Pigment||Catfix-511 to be taken|
2. Dye the Catfix-511 treated fabric with pigment at 60 deg.C for 30 mins.and Drain
3. After pigment dyeing, treat the fabric at 50 deg.C with binder for 20 mins.
[Take binder as per depth of shade]
Precautionary measures -
|Storage||Store in cool, ventilated shed away from heat and direct sunlight.Storage temperature should not exceed 35 deg C.Close lids firmly to avoid contact with air and moisture.|
|Shelf Life||8 months from the date of manufacturing, if stored under controlled conditions.|
