Sarawool | Wool Protecting Agent
SARAWOOL is a wool protecting agent can be used in dyeing of wool and its blends at all stages of processing at low temperatures, at the boil and at high temperatures on all current equipment. It reduces the permanent setting of the wool drastically, especially at the boil and improves the mechanical properties of the wool, facilitating further processing and thus enhancing quality.
Also, SARAWOOL can be used for dyeing all protein fibres under critical conditions, e.g. treatments in short liquors, or in winches and jets highly charged with goods that tend to crease or lose dimensional stability.
Anti-felting property of wool makes further processing easier and a more even appearance at all stages of processing. Also, no impairment of liquor stability offers improved dependability in processing.
||It allows dyeing at a higher speed with minimum weight loss of wool hence higher productivity with higher yarn quality and quantity.
||This imparts soft handle, bulkiness, easy combing and better spinning property
||Suitable for pretreatment and dyeing of wool and its blends under critical conditions of temperature
|Reduction in a permanent setting
||Improved further processing during carding and spinning. Increased mechanical stability (tensile strength) of the yarn, allowing easier weaving and knitting.
||Prevents setting of running marks and creases. Increased mechanical stability (tensile strength and abrasion resistance). Better handle. Better dimensional stability on moisture uptake.
||Colourless viscous liquid
|pH of 1% solution||7 +/- 1
|Miscibility||Readily miscible with water
|Stability||Stable in hard water and to acids, alkalies and electrolytes in the usual amounts
|Compatibility||Compatible with nonionic and anionic products
For the best effects (anti-felting, anti-setting and lubricating), SARAWOOL should be added to the bath after the penetration accelerant and before the goods.
SARAWOOL is diluted by pouring on cold or warm water while stirring gently and then added to the treatment bath. Stock solutions are stable for prolonged periods.
The following recommendation is intended as a guideline for reducing wool felting and/or improving the running properties of the goods :
This amount can also be used to achieve an anti-setting effect if the pH is highly acid (up to 4.0). At pH 4.0 - 7.0, a peroxide addition is recommended to increase the anti-setting effect.
*) As specific dyes (especially certain chroming and 1:1 metal complex dyes) are sensitive to peroxide, preliminary trials are recommended.
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 : 9 months from the date of manufacturing, if stored under controlled conditions.
