Flexdye-ELA is a new dyeing auxiliary which improves the depth of shade of elastane (EL) portion in blends with PA/EL. It enables to achieve a higher quality of Black dyed PA/EL by providing higher build-up and high wet fastness property.
Flexdye-ELA solves the problem of "Grin through" of the undyed elastane fibre. Flexdye-ELA is especially recommended for elastic knits for lingerie, swim and sportswear and high-value athletic apparel.

Step-1 : Pretreatment
Flexdye-ELA is applied initially in an acid bath at 50 deg.C for 20 min prior to dyeing.
Step-2 : Dyeing
No need to drain the pretreatment bath. Dyeing can be performed in the same bath.
For a critical case of poor compatibility, it is recommended to drain the pretreatment bath and start the dyeing in a fresh bath.
