However, kindly note that this difference in colour does not exhibit any variation in performance. 


1. Ball Blast Effect :

Fill the drum washer to its 3/4 capacity with thermocol balls of varying sizes. The balls are wetted out with little quantity of water. Sprinkle 10-15% Sarafinish-OMP (on weight of garment) on these wet thermocol balls and rotate drums for 10-15 min.for even distribution of Sarafinish-OMP and it forms pasty mass on the thermocol ball. Load the machine with desized dry garments/terry towels and treat for 45-60 mins. depending upon the effect required. Unload and treat the garments with mild peroxide or sodium hydrosulphite to remove traces of Sarafinish-OMP or with 0.5-1 g/l Helar PPN or simply washed thoroughly and dried.
