Supernol-PE (Conc) is a self-emulsifying polyethylene wax which can be used to prepare ready to use polyethylene emulsion required for textile finishing. Diluted emulsion of Supernol-PE (Conc) can be used for finishing of cotton bottom weight, denim for softening as well as to impart lubricity. Emulsion of Supernol-PE (Conc) is also recommended for finishing of cotton knits, cotton shirting to improve sewability. Addition of emulsion of Supernol-PE (Conc) in resin finishing minimises strength loss. Supernol-PE (Conc) does not affect whiteness or shade.
||An additional emulsifier is not required
||Suitable for whites and pastel shades
|Imparts surface smoothness and improves sewability
||Ideal for knits and high value shirting.
||Offwhite to creamish lumps

|Miscibility||Require high temperature & vigorous stirring for dissolution
|Stability||Stable to dilute acids & dilute alkalies
|Compatibility||Compatible with cationic, anionic and nonionic products
1-3 g/l Supernol-PE (Conc).
Can be used by pad application as a self-finish or along with softeners or in resin finishing.
Instructions For Dilution
Procedure to make 20% of Supernol-PE (Conc).
In reaction vessel, take 20 parts of Supernol-PE (Conc) and heat it to 130-140 deg.C to form free flowing clear liquid. Add this molten material gradually to 80 parts of DM water heated to 95 deg.C with high speed stirring using Turbo stirrer at 2000-3000 rpm over 10 mins. Continue stirring for 60-120 mins for uniform emulsion and maintain 95 deg.C throughout stirring. Cool and filter if required. Creamish to off-white stable emulsion is obtained. Repeated heating and cooling of wax and overheating above 140 deg.C will lead to further oxidation of wax which will change physical appearance of diluted emulsion.
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 formation.
If diluted product shows white translucent layer at the top, then stir before use.
It is advisable to utilize the diluted product within 2 months.
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.
