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.
|Catalyst for hypochlorite
||Lower concentration and shorter time for bleaching of denim garments.
|Safe to use for denim and its blends with lycra and tencel
||Pregradation is minimum
||Colourless to straw white to light yellow viscous liquid
|Ionic nature||Nonionic to weakly cationic
|pH of 1% solution||8 +/- 1
|Miscibility||Miscible with water
|Stability||Stable to dilute acids and dilute alkalies
|Compatibility||Compatible with cationic and nonionic products
For garments, 1-2 g/l SARABLEACH-BBA
Add SARABLEACH-BBA to the bath and circulate for 5 min. so that the product gets uniformly dispersed with garments the load before addition of the Sodium hypochlorite bleach. Antichlor treatment at the end of Sodium hypochlorite bleach is given using hydrogen peroxide.
For localised effects, apply neat Sarableach-BBA on desized garments using spray, brush or other applicators, air dry and bleach as usual followed by antichlor treatment.
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.
