Application

Padding process

  • Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) : 30-100 g/l
  • Pick-up : 65-70%
  • Bath pH : 6.0-7.0
  • Drying : 120 deg.C, 2 min.
  • Curing* : 145-150 deg.C, 3 min. OR 170 deg.C for 40 sec.
  • In case of polyester, at maximum pick up, curing at temperature 145-150 deg.C gives better spray rating.
  • In case of polyester and P/W fabric it is recommended to wash fabric with 0.5-1 g/l Saragen-DAM before finishing.

Exhaust process for garment fabrics

  • Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) : 4-10%
  • Bath pH : 6.0 - 7.0
  • Bath Temp. : R.T. to 40 deg.C, (1 deg.C/min.)
  • Time : 30-40 min. at 40 deg.C
  • Drying/Curing : 110 deg.C, 3 min. / 145-150 deg.C, 3 min. OR 170 deg.C for 40 sec.
Note:
  • Filtration of Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) after stirring and before diluting is recommended.
  • It is recommended to prewash the substrate with 1 g/l Saragen-DAM at 80-85 deg.C for 20-30 min to remove traces of residual impurities to get excellent results
  • Preliminary trials are recommended before bulk processing
  • For higher durability 5-10 g/l of Ecolink (Conc) can be used
  • To get very good results with Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) pick up should be more than 70%
  • The minimum 145 deg.C temperature for curing is recommended get better results
  • Ecoguard-SYN (Conc) is suitable with Deca based FR products but it is not to be used with phosphorous based and APP (Ammonium Phosphophate) based FR products
  • Before finishing with Ecoguard-SYN (Conc), bring the fabric temperature to room temperature
  • The impairment of the repellent effects will occur by adding analogous auxillaries into the finishing bath.
  • To avoid impairment of the repellent effect mechanical treatment such as calendering, brushing etc. to be avoided
Precautions

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.
