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.
