SARABLEACH-BBA | Bleach bath accelerator

Product Information

Sarableach-BBA is a unique catalyst developed for hypochlorite bleaching of denim garments and its blends with lycra, tencel to produce special effects. Concentration of sodium hypochlorite can be reduced by almost 50% without affecting the end results. Due to low concentration of sodium hypochlorite in bleaching with Sarableach-BBA, degradation of lycra and tencel is prevented.

In case of calcium hypochlorite, which is slower in action compared to sodium hypochlorite, treatment time can be reduced by half by addition of Sarableach-BBA.

Localised bleached effect similar to sand blasting without fabric damage with Sarableach-BBA can be produced on desized denim garments as well as garments dyed with sulphur and reactive dyes with hypochlorite.
