PRODUCT LITERATURE


SARABLOOM-SL

(color blooming & deepening agent)


Product Information


Sarabloom-SL is a colour blooming agent specially developed for enchancing shade of cotton, wool, polyester and their blends. It is specially suitable for black and navy blue dyed fabrics.

Sarabloom-SL imparts neutral to redder tone on the treated fabrics.

Treatment with Sarabloom-SL confers soft hand to the fabric and thus addition of conventional softeners can be reduced from the recipe. Sarabloom-SL does not lead to bronzing.

Precautions :


- Any strong mechanical finish like calendering, pressure decatising etc. which can affect the surface characteristics of the finished fabric may reduce blooming effect.


- Blooming effect will not be observed for dyefixed fabric.


- pH of padding solution should be 4.5-5.0. If pH increases to alkaline side, the emulsion becomes unstable resulting in the formation of white specks and ultimately lower colour blooming effect on fabric.


- Make small volume of pad solution to avoid tailing problem.

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
