Fixanol (Conc). is a polyamine based non formaldehyde cationic dyefixing agent for reactive and direct dyed and printed fabrics. Due to its unique characteristics, it not only improves wash fastness, particularly staining on multifibre but also improves fastness to perspiration and fastness to water contact. Fixanol (Conc). shows minimum effect on light fastness and on the shade of the treated material. Fixanol (Conc). can be applied by exhaust as well as pad application.
||Suitable for Oekotex and baby wear
|Minimum effect on shade and light fastness
||Rematching not require
||No adverse effect on handle of fabric
||Pale yellow to light brown clear to hazy viscous liquid
|pH of 1% solution||6 +/- 1
|Miscibility||Miscible with water
||Compatible with cationic and nonionic products
||Stable to dilute acids and unstable to dilute alkalies
After thorough soaping to remove hydrolysed reactive dyestuff from dyed or printed material, treat in a fresh bath with below recipes :
Depth of Shade
If finishing with cationic softener is to be carried out in the same bath, it is recommended to first carry out dyefixing with 1/3rd quantity of required Fixanol (Conc). under above conditions followed by cationic softener in the same bath under same conditions for 15-20 mins. followed by addition of remaining quantity of Fixanol (Conc). in the same bath and treatment to be carried out for further 15-20 min.
In last chamber, pH 5-5.5 with acetic acid, at 35-40 deg.C
Removal of dyefixing agent from dyed fabric :
Take 0.5-1% Celldet-R and treat the dyefixed fabric at 95 deg. C for 20-30 min and drain the bath.Cold wash for 10 min and drain.
Adjust the bath pH 4.5-5.0 using acetic acid and run for 5 min to ensure the bath pH 4.5-5.0 then add
Treat at 85-90 deg. C for 20-30 min and drain the bath.
Hot wash at 70 deg. C for 10 min and drain the bath.
Cold wash for 10 min and drain.
Instructions For Dilution
Procedure to prepare 40% Fixanol (Conc).
On storage brownish particles may tend to settle down and the colour of the product tends to change from yellow to whitish brown. All this does not have any reflection on the perfomance of the product. Please stir before use.
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.
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.
