Application
  • Pick-up : 65-70%
  • Bath pH : 4.0 - 4.5
  • Drying : 100 - 120 deg.C
  • Curing : 150 deg.C,5 min. OR 160 deg.C,3 min. OR 170 deg.C, 1 min.

SUGGESTED RECIPES:

For all substrates

  • Careguard-541 : 30-80 g/l
  • Acetic Acid : 0.5 g/l
  • IPA : 5 g/l

*Concentration of Careguard-541 to be taken on the basis of durability requirement.

Note:
  1. It is recommended to prewash the substrate to be treated with 1 g/l Saragen-DAM at 80-85 deg.C for 20-30 min. to remove traces of residual impurities to get excellent results.
  2. After padding and drying, if a fabric is kept overnight before curing, results will be further improved.
  3. Compatible with Flame Retardant finish (Pre-trial is recommended).
  4. Addition of 5-10 g/l Crosslink-SC (Conc) is optional and recommended for achieving higher durability.
  5. A water-oil repellent finish can be combined with resin finish using 30g/l Saralink-ULF + 6g/l MgCl2 + 20g/l Saralube-2975.

Sequence of addition:

  • Prepare a bath with all ingredients including Saralink-ULF, MgCl2, and Crosslink-SC (Conc) in water containing Acetic acid.
  • Stir continuously and add Careguard-541 as the final ingredient.

Precautions :

  • Avoid high speed and continuous stirring.
  • Avoid silicone based softeners in the finishing recipe.
  • Pre trial with Careguard-541 is recommended with coating chemicals.
