Saraguard-5700 is a methanol free antibacterial and antiviral agent which is suitable for all types of textile substrate. Saraguard-5700 can be applied by padding, exhaust, soaking and spraying methods. Saraguard-5700 is non-leaching antimicrobial agent and is durable to multiple home launderings. It shows antibacterial and antifungal activity by contact mechanism. Saraguard-5700 shows excellent antimicrobial activity on non-woven substrates also. Saraguard-5700 will provide protection against wide range of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria's, fungi, algae and wide range of viruses. Saraguard-5700 is suitable for application persona1 protective equipment/ clothing (PPE)used in medical and other textile industries.

* For application in medical textiles the dosage of the above chemical has to be optimized depending on the GSM of the fabric and (%) Expression
* Concentration of the above product to be taken on the basis of durability requirement.
* Pre-trials are recommended.
The product is supplied in the anhydrous form. The product to be diluted with water just before a treatment only when ready for processing of textiles. Once added to the pad bath / exhaust bath the stability of such a bath is limited; due to hydrolysis of the active ingredients in our antimicrobial leading to self cross linking. Hence, padding bath containing Saraguard-5700 should be used up in the shortest time possible, as extended storage of such bath would lead to formulation of insoluble particles which may settle as precipitation and reduces performance.
Kindly note that the product is readily dilutable and stored in anhydrous polar solvents like methanol, ethanol, iso-propyl alcohol or low molecular weight glycol like MEG or DEG.

Instructions For Dilution
Procedure to prepare 5%, 10% & 20% Saraguard-5700
Even one drop of water will polymerize the material so, care should be taken that there should not be water at any stage of dilution or during packing.
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.
