0.5-1 g/l Quest-AMP can be added with usual recipe to prevent white deposits as well as pin-hole marks due to iron. When Quest-AMP is added in the recipe, reduces the concentration of organic stabiliser as it has stabilising action.

2. For combined scouring and bleaching on continuous bleaching range

0.5-1 gm/kg Quest-AMP is recommended.
