Saraguard-5700 is a methanol-free antimicrobial agent for finishing of all types of textile substrate. Saraguard-5700 can be applied by padding, exhaust, soaking and spraying methods. Saraguard-5700 is a non-leaching antimicrobial agent. It is effective against a broad spectrum of microbes. It shows antibacterial and antifungal activity by contact mechanism. Saraguard-5700 shows excellent antimicrobial activity on non-woven substrates also.
It can be applied by spray technique on the surface of shoes and packing box or paper to prevent mildew formation.

The product is supplied in the anhydrous form. The product to be diluted with water just before a treatment only when ready for the processing of textiles. Once added to the pad bath/exhaust bath the stability of such a bath is limited; due to hydrolysis of the active ingredients in our antimicrobial leading to self cross-linking. Hence, a padding bath containing Saraguard-5700 should be used up in the shortest time possible, as extended storage of such bath would lead to a formulation of insoluble particles which may settle as precipitation and reduces performance.
Kindly note that the product is readily dilutable and stored in anhydrous polar solvents like methanol, ethanol, isopropyl alcohol or low molecular weight glycols like MEG or DEG.

Instructions For Dilution
Procedure to prepare 5%, 10% & 20% Saraguard-5700
Even one drop of water will polymerise the material so, care should be taken that there should not be water at any stage of dilution or during packing.
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.
