PRODUCT LITERATURE


SARASOL-1101 | digital textile printing


Product Information


Sarasol-1101 is a thickening agent which is applied in the pre-treatment padding process before Ink-Jet printing on various substrates. Sarasol-1101 is suitable on all types of fabrics printed with disperse, reative and acid inks. Sarasol-1101 being a high molecular weight product locally increases the viscosity thereby prevents spreading of prints. Sarasol-1101 delivers level prints with sharp outlines and improved colour value. It has a film forming and adhesion property. The advantage of Sarasol-1101 is ready to use product with consistent viscosity. Sarasol-1101 is stable as there is no bacterial attack. The feel of the fabric is not affected. The inkjet printing technology used in digital textile printing is also used in pre-treatment of fabric prior to printing process.
