Nylofix-993 is a low dusting powder dyefixing agent for acid and metal complex dyed/printed polyamide and their blends. It is readily soluble in water. After treatment with Nylofix-993 improves wet fastness properties. It acts as a leveling agent for Nylon/Wool blend for achieving solid even dyeing. It is also reserving agent for dyeing of polyamide fibres with acid and metal complex dyes. Nylofix-993 is stable under acidic condition this can be used for various application.

I.Exhaust application to improve the wet fastness of Polyamide
II.Exhaust application for Wool / Nylon blend for solid shade
Nylofix-993 is added to the bath containing approximately 1% acetic acid and other auxillaries. Treatment to be carried out for 20 min at 50-60 deg.C before adding dye and then dyeing to be carried out. The concentration of Nylofix-993 depends on type of dye and depth of shade, dyeing method and fibre blends. Generally, more quantity of Nylofix-993 is required for high dye affinity and pale shades and less quantity is required for darker shades.
III.Exhaust application for Nylon / Cellulose blend for solid shade
Nylofix-993 is added to the dyebath to prevent staining of nylon fibre with direct dyes depending on the depth of shade.
1. The handle of the fabrics may change slightly (becoming firmer, fuller), depending on the amount of Nylofix-993 used, the fabric construction, and the temperature during drying or post-setting.
2. The optimum concentration of Nylofix-993 can vary depending on type of polyamide. Generally, higher concentration are required for Nylon 6 than for Nylon 66. It is advisable to carry out the after treatment at 70 deg.C
The effects obtained by after treating with Nylofix-993 are stable to dry heat at the usual setting temperatures, but can be impaired by intense pressure steaming. Increasing the amount of Nylofix-993 will often improve the stability of the dyefixation to steaming. Polyamide material treated with Nylofix-993 is difficult to re-dye or over-dye. Nylofix-993 should therefore be stripped first before redyeing.
Removal of Nylofix-993 from a substrate
2 g/l ammonia 24%
2-3 g/l detergent
Run for 10-20 minutes at 80-90 deg.C followed by rinsing.
Instructions For Dilution
Procedure to prepare 35% Nylofix-993
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.
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.
