Saraquest-W | Sequestering Agent
Saraquest-W is high power sequestering agent specially developed for scouring as well as bleaching of cotton, terry towel and polyester/cellulosic blends.
It has a high chelating action for calcium, magnessium and iron under alkaline conditions and high temperature. It not only prevents precipitation of insoluble hydroxides and carbonates formed during scouring and bleaching, but also chelates iron impurities thereby preventing catalytic damage and pin-hole marks during peroxide bleaching.
It is also suitable for combine scouring and bleaching operation.
|High chelation value for calcium and iron.
||Suitable for processing with hard water and with high iron content.
|Good sequestering action over wide pH
||Suitable for scouring and bleaching, Suitable for continuous process application.
|Ionic nature||Nonionic to weakly anionic
|pH of 1% solution||2 +/- 1
|Miscibility||Miscible with water
||Compatible with nonionic and anioinic products
||Stable to dilute acids and dilute alkalies
0.5-1 g/l Saraquest-W can be added with usual recipe to prevent white deposits as well as pin-hole marks due to iron. When Saraquest-W is added in the recipe, reduces the concentration of organic stabiliser as it has stabilising action.
0.3-0.5% Saraquest-W is recommended to prevent precipitation of pectin residues at the end of bio-scouring and before peroxide bleaching. Quantity of peroxide stabiliser can be reduced when Saraquest-W is added before bleaching.
Note : Please note that for dosing, 10% dilution of Saraquest-W is recommended instead of neat solution.
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 : 8 months from the date of manufacturing, if stored under controlled conditions.
