Saraguard-AM (Conc) is a concentrated antimicrobial and antiviral agent for finishing of textile substrate. Saraguard-AM (Conc) can be applied by padding, exhaust soaking and spraying methods. Saraguard-AM (Conc) is non-leaching antimicrobial agent. It is effective against a broad spectrum of microbes and viruses. It shows antibacterial and antifungal activity by contact mechanism.
It can be applied by spray technique on the surface of shoes and packing box or paper to prevent mildew formation. It is suitable for Medical Textile application.

* 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
* Concentration of the above product to be taken on the basis of durability Requirement.
* For application in medical textiles the dosage of the above chemical has to be Optimized depending on the GSM of the fabric and (%) Expression
* Dosages recommended are based on the concentrated products strength.
* Dosages of diluted product to be calculated on the basis of solid content.
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-AM (Conc) 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 40-48% diluted product of 70% Saraguard-AM (Conc)
|Dry Butyl Di-glycol OR Dry
|Methanol or Dry Ethanol
Even a drop of water will polymerize the material. Care should be taken to avoid water contact at any stage of dilution or during packing.
It is advisable to utilize the diluted product within 2 months.
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.
