PRODUCT LITERATURE


ECOGUARD-SYN (CONC)


Product Information


Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) is a fluorine free speciality product for water repellency and rainproofing. Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) gives best results on synthetic fabrics and outer wear fabrics. The performance of Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) is very close to C6 fluoro chemicals in terms of water repellency and durability. It imparts sewability and also provides better resistance to abrasion and tear.

Application


Padding Process


Ecoguard-SYN 30-100 g/l
Crosslink-SC 5-10 g/l (for durability)
Pick-up 65-70%
Bath pH 6.0-7.0
Drying 120 deg.C, 2 min.
Curing* 145-150 deg.C, 3 min. and 170 deg.C for 40 sec.

- In case of polyester, at maximum pick up, curing at temperature 145-150 deg.C gives better spray rating.

- In case of polyester and P/W fabric it is recommended to wash fabric with 0.5-1 g/l Celldet-R (Non-ionic wetting agent) before finishing.


Exhaust process for garment fabrics


Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) 4-10%
Crosslink-SC (Conc) 0.5 - 1%
Bath pH 6.0 - 7.0
Bath Temp. R.T. to 40 deg.C (1 deg.C/min.)
Time 30-40 min. at 40 deg.C
Drying / Curing 110 deg.C, 3 min. / 145-150 deg.C, 3 min. OR 170 deg.C for 40 sec

Note :


- Preliminary trials are recommended before bulk processing.


- To get very good results with Ecoguard-SYN (Conc), pick up should be more than 70%


- The minimum 145 deg.C temperature for curing is recommended..


- If curing temperature 160 deg.C and above cannot be maintained then minimum 145 deg.C temperature for curing is recommended.


- If results are not upto the mark, then re-curing will help to get better results.


- Ecoguard-SYN(Conc) is suitable with Deca based FR products but it is not to be used with phosphorous based and APP (Ammonium Phosphophate) based FR products.


- Before finishing with Ecoguard-SYN (Conc), it is better that fabric is not hot but cooled down.


- Addition of Saraline-FI along with Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) will stabilize the bath and which in turn will minimize roller build-up if any.


Precautions

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.
