Product Information

Sarasoft-EP (Conc) is a polyethylene eumlsion for cotton and polyester cellulosic blend fabrics to impart soft and bulky handle. Sarasoft-EP (Conc) when used alongwith saralink-545 or Saralink-ULF improves the tear and tensile strength of the treated fabrics with improvement in DP rating. It also improves sewability of the finished fabrics. Sarasoft-EP (Conc) is also recommended for finishing of fabrics before emerising to ensure uniformity of treatment.
