  • The effect of Geotex-HPA (Conc). is durable for washing below 40 deg.C
  • Finishing of dyed goods above 40 deg.C temperature, may cause bleeding depending on the colourfastness of shade

Instructions For Dilution

Procedure to prepare 20% diluted product of 100% Geotex-HPA (Conc).

  • Take 79 parts DM water (60 deg.C)
  • To this, add 0.5-1 part of Xanthan gum (viscosity modifier)
  • Stir at 150-200 rpm for 30-40 min to obtain homogenous liquid.
  • After cooling, add 20 parts of Geotex-HPA (Conc). and stirred at 150-200 rpm for 20-25 min.

Preservation: It is recommended to add 0.1% Bronopol (2-Bromo,2-nitropropane, 1,3-diol) or Methyl Paraben (methyl para hydroxy benzoate) as an antimicrobial agent to avoid fungal/microbial growth.

Note:

Geotex HPA (Conc) is a surfactant-free self-dispersing product and has a tendency to settle or separate. It is to be stirred well before use.
