Saraquest-W (Conc) is high power sequestering agent in powder form specially developed for scouring and bleaching of cotton and polyester/cellulosic blends.
Saraquest-W (Conc) has a high chelating action for calcium, magnesium and iron under alkaline conditions and at high temperature, thereby it prevents precipitation of insoluble hydroxides and carbonates which are formed due to alkali used in scouring and bleaching. It also chelates iron impurities preventing catalytic damage and pin-hole marks during peroxide bleaching.
|High chelation value for calcium and iron.
||Suitable for processing with hard water.
|Very Good sequestering action over wide pH and temperature range
||Readily soluble and auto dispensable.
|Safe cellulosic bleaching
||Reduces the degradation of fibre
|Ionic nature||Nonionic to weakly anionic
|pH of 1% solution||6 +/- 1
|Miscibility||Soluble in water
||Compatible with anionic and nonionic products
||Stable to dilute acids, dilute alkalies and hard water
Note : Please note that for dosing, 10% dilution of Saraquest-W (Conc) is recommended instead of neat solution.
Instructions For Dilution
Procedure to prepare 10% Saraquest-W (Conc)
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.
Note : Dilution is unstable above 10% solids on standing.
It is advisable to utilize the diluted product with in 2 months. Stir well before use.
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.
