SARABLOOM-SL | Colour deepening agent for Cotton

Product Information

Sarabloom-SL is a colour blooming agent specially developed for enhancing shade of cotton, wool, polyester and their blends. It is specially suitable for black and navy blue dyed fabrics. Sarabloom-SL imparts neutral to redder tone on the treated fabrics. 

Treatment with Sarabloom-SL confers soft hand to the fabric and thus addition of conventional softeners can be reduced from the recipe. Sarabloom-SL does not lead to bronzing.

Precautions :

- Any strong mechanical finish like calendering, pressure decatising etc.which can affect the surface characteristics of the finished fabric may reduce blooming effect.

- Blooming effect will not be observed for dyefixed fabric.

- pH of padding solution should be 4.5-5.0. If pH increases to alkaline side, the emulsion becomes unstable resulting in the formation of white specks and ultimately lower colour       blooming effect on fabric.

- Make small volume of pad solution to avoid tailing problem.


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.
