Product Information

Sarasol-MB is a concentrated and economical thickening agent which is applied in pre-treatment padding process before Ink-Jet printing on various textile substrates. Sarasol-MB can be easily dosable. Sarasol-MB locally increase the viscosity thereby prevents the spreading of ink. It delivers even prints with sharp outlines and improved colour value on all types of fabrics printed with disperse inks. Sarasol-MB does not affect the feel of fabric.
