Soaking Method 

Prepare 1-4% solution of Saraguard-5700 depending on the durability required in a vessel. Introduce the fabric in the vessel containing Saraguard-5700 solution and soak the fabric for 20-30 minutes at 30-40deg. C with intermittent stirring. Unload the fabric and hydro extract it to remove excess liquor, without rinsing. Dry the fabric at approximately 140°C

Spraying Method

Prepare 2-6% solution of Saraguard-5700 depending on the durability required in a vessel.
Spray the solution on the fabric using a spray gun then dry the fabric at approximately 140°C

* The product must be diluted with water and kept standing for 60 minutes before application on any substrates. This helps in proper activation of the product and thus increases the     reactivity and durability of the product
* 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.

Precautions :

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. 

Test Results :

  • Cotton, polyester and their blended fabrics finished with 60 g/l Saraguard-5700 shows 80-95% reduction in bacterial count by AATCC-100 after 20 Home Launderings.
  • Polyamide and acrylic fabrics finished with 60 g/l Saraguard-5700 shows 95-100% reduction in bacterial count by AATCC 100 method.
