ESTO-PVP | Concentrated product, prevents cross-staining of dyes

Product Information

Esto-PVP is a concentrated product to avoid cross-staining of dyes in washing-off of dyed and printed substrates. Esto-PVP can be used in batch as well as in continous operation. During washing-off, Esto-PVP forms weak complex with anionic dyes which is kept in dispersion througout washing process and prevents re-deposition thereby cross-staining is avoided. Due to its good rinseability, Esto-PVP is easily washed-off and does not interfere in subsequent dyefixing or softening. Esto-PVP can be used against conventional washing off agents. It is also recommended for stripping of vat and sulphur dyes.

2. Washing-off of dyeings and prints on continous range :

  • 0.5-1 g/l Esto-PVP
  • pH 5-6, temp. 95-98 deg.C

3. Preventing re-deposition in stripping of vat, sulphur and reactive dyes :

  • 4-6 g/l Caustic soda flakes
  • 4-6 g/l Sodium hydrosulphite
  • 0.5 g/l Esto-PVP
  • 1-2 g/l celldet-R

Treat at 70-80 deg.C for 45-60 mins. Wash and neutralise before overdyeing.
