Precautions :

The product is supplied in the anhydrous form. The product to be diluted with water just before a treatment only when ready for processing of textiles. Once added to the pad bath / exhaust bath the stability of such a bath is limited; due to hydrolysis of the active ingredients in our antimicrobial leading to self cross linking. Hence, padding bath containing Saraguard-5700 should be used up in the shortest time possible, as extended storage of such bath would lead to formulation of insoluble particles which may settle as precipitation and reduces performance.

Kindly note that the product is readily dilutable and stored in anhydrous polar solvents like methanol, ethanol, iso-propyl alcohol or low molecular weight glycol like MEG or DEG.

Test Results :

  • Cotton, polyester and their blended fabrics finished with 60 g/l Saraguard-5700 show 80-95% reduction in a bacterial count by AATCC-100 after 20 Home Launderings.
  • Polyamide and acrylic fabrics finished with 60 g/l Saraguard-5700 shows 95-100% reduction in a bacterial count by AATCC 100 method.

Instructions For Dilution

Procedure to prepare 5%, 10% & 20% Saraguard-5700


Butyl Di-glycol
75 50
Total :
100 100
  • Take Saraguard-5700 in a dry vessel
  • To this gradually add butyl di-glycol under constant stirring
  • Continue stirring till a homogenous product is obtained
Note :

Even one drop of water will polymerise the material so, care should be taken that there should not be water at any stage of dilution or during packing.


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.
