PRODUCT LITERATURE


ECOGUARD-SR 6


Product Information


Ecoguard-SR 6 is a new generation stain releasing fluorocarbon based on C6 chemistry. It imparts very good stain release properties on cotton, polyester and their blends. It also imparts oil and water repellency. The finish on substrate allow the stains to leave fabric faster and makes the fabric clean. Treated fabric is durable to multiple home launderings.

* Concentration of Ecoguard-SR 6 to be taken on the basis of durability requirement.


** If Saralink-ULF is added in the recipe then only MgCl2 to be added.


Note :


  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. - Crosslink-SC(Conc) is an extender, addition of which improves fastness to washing and resistance to abrasion.

Sequence of addition:


- Prepare bath with all ingredients including Saralink-ULF MgCl2 and Crosslink-SC(Conc) in water containing Acetic acid.


- Stir continuously and add Ecoguard-SR 6 as the final ingredient.


Precautions :


- Avoid high speed and continuous stirring.


- Avoid silicone based softeners in the finishing recipe.
