Applications

To produce stiff and full finishes

 

Calabond AG may be used as a straight finishing agent for textiles to modify their hand leaneddraping properties. Finishes produced with Calabond AG have considerable resistance to repeated washing although some loss of stiffness occurs.

To produce modified handle in Resin Finishes

Calabond AG can be used to modify the handle of finishes produced with Texici GC / AN-LF / AN- GCN / AN-GCG. It also confers improved abrasion resistance when used in such finishes.

Recommended Applications / Recipes

For carpet back sizing

Calabond AG is used for back sizing of carpets where it shows advantages in preparation, immunity from bacterial attack and excellent stability as compared with the usual glue and flour sizes.  The resin liquors can be keptfor long periods without any deterioration.  Any slight sediment can be easily stirred in before use. Carpet back sizing with Calabond AG is carried out using the normal equipment except that where brushes are used after back sizing they should be avoided, as the resin will be difficult to remove from bristles, after drying.

The strength of sizing liquor will depends on the degree of stiffening required and on the pickup of the liquor by the carpet. Following is recommended as a basis for trial.

Calabond AG    250              g/L

Licisol oil HS     03 –04        g/L

 

As a Bonding and Laminating Agent

Calabond AG is an effective bonding and laminating agent possessing good adhesive properties and may be used in doubling or combining processes. The dispersion is applied by spreading machine and normal drying temperatures are sufficient to affect the bond.

For production of Non slip finishes

Calabond AG may be used in the production of non slip finishes, on loosely woven rayon goods and for protective coating on yarns and fabrics an improvement in the draping properties is obtained and the tendency to pilling is reduced.

Calabond AG is not normally substantive to textile fibers and is best applied to piece goods by padding. It may be applied to knitted goods by impregnation below 30 °C.

As general finish, impregnation liquor containing 10 – 50 g/L of Calabond AG should be used.

Use of Calabond AG with softeners

Attractive,  full,  firm  finishes  are  produced  on  Cotton,  Viscose,  Rayon or Linen  piece  by applying a mixture of Calabond AG and softening agents. The finish obtained may be varied within wide limits bearing in mind that higher the proportions of Calabond AG, the stiffer will be the effect. Depending on the handle required, the quantities of resin and softener used may be varied between the following limits:

Calabond AG05 – 50 g/L

Softener                   05 – 20 g/L

Recommended softeners are Softicil ESP or Softicil AN-CP. The softeners may be dispersed by stirring in ten times its weight of water 80 – 100° C. Dilute the resin separately with ten times its weight of cold water. Add the dispersion separately to cold water in the vessel intended for use and make up volume with cold water. The best method of application is by padding and drying without rinsing off. However, a winch or jig may be used, if desired.

Storage

Stable under normal conditions, the product should be stored away from heat and container should be properly capped all the time (Cap the container after use). Avoid direct contact ofsunlight.

Attractive, full, firm finishes are produced on Cotton, Viscose, Rayon or Linen piece by applying a mixture ofCalabondECO and softening agents. The finish obtained m may be varied within wide limits bearing in mind that higher the proportions of CalabondECO, the stiffer will be the effect. Depending on the handle required, the quantities of resin and softener used may be varied between the following limits:

CalabondECO   05 – 50 g/L

Softener                   05 – 20 g/L

Recommended softeners are Softicil ESP or Softicil AN-CP. The softeners may be dispersed bystirring in ten times its weight of water 80 – 100° C. Dilute the resin separately with ten times its weight of cold water. Add the dispersion separately to cold water in the vessel intended for use and make up volume with cold water. The best method of application is by padding and drying without rinsing off. However, a winch or jig may be used, if desired.

Storage

Stable under normal conditions, the product should be stored away from heat and container should be properly capped all the time (Cap the container after use). Avoid direct contact of sunlight.

Applications

To produce stiff and full finishes

Calabond LC may be used as a straight finishing agent for textiles to modify their hand leaneddraping properties. Finishes produced with Calabond LC have considerable resistance to repeated washing although some loss of stiffness occurs.

To produce modified handle in Resin Finishes

Calabond LC can be used to modify the handle of finishes produced with Texici GC / AN-LF / AN- GCN / AN-GCG. It also confers improved abrasion resistance when used in such finishes.

Recommended Applications / Recipes

For carpet back sizing

Calabond LC is used for back sizing of carpets where it shows advantages in preparation, immunity from bacterial attack and excellent stability as compared with the usual glue and flour sizes.  The resin liquors can be keptfor long periods without any deterioration.  Any slight sediment can be easily stirred in before use. Carpet back sizing with Calabond LC is carried out using the normal equipment except that where brushes are used after back sizing they should be avoided, as the resin will be difficult to remove from bristles, after drying.

The strength of sizing liquor will depends on the degree of stiffening required and on the pickup of the liquor by the carpet. Following is recommended as a basis for trial.

Calabond LC    250              g/L

pH (5% sol’n)             – 8.5 – 10.5

GENERAL COMMENTS

ECCOSOFT PE 100 is a non-ionic polyethylene emulsion softener and lubricant composed entirely of polyethylene and not adulterated with less desirable paraffin waxes.

This polyethylene softener contributes increased wear and abrasion resistance to treated fabrics and shows excellent resistance to yellowing or discoloration. The addition of ECCOSOFT PE 100 to various resins finishes supplies the desired fullness and softness of hand.

It is suggested the ECCOSOFT PE 100 be diluted with room temperature or slightly warmed water and application then begun.

ECCOSOFT PE 100 should be protected from freezing cycles during the winter months, as the emulsion will deteriorate.

It would be recommended to use the product by pad application between 10 – 30 g/l, depending on the pick-up and required finish.

For exhaust application, dosage of 1 – 3% at 40 – 50ºC for 15 – 25 min.

Applications

To produce stiff and full finishes

Fillebond VA may be used as a straight finishing agent for textiles to modify their hand leaned draping properties.  Finishes produced with Fillebond VA haveconsiderableresistance to repeated washing although some loss of stiffness occurs.

To produce modified handle in Resin Finishes

Fillebond VA can be used to modify the handle of finishes produced with Texicil GC. It also confers improved abrasion resistance when used in such finishes.

Recommended Applications / Recipes

For carpet back sizing

Fillebond VA is used for back sizing of carpets where it shows advantages in preparation, immunity from bacterial attack and excellent stability as compared with the usual glue and flour sizes.  The resin liquors can be keptfor long periods without any deterioration.  Any slight sediment can be easily stirred in before use. Carpet back sizing with Fillebond VA is carried out using the normal equipment except that where brushes are used after back sizing they should be avoided, as the resin will be difficult to remove from bristles, after drying.

The strength of sizing liquor will depends on the degree of stiffening required and on the pickup of the liquor by the carpet. Following is recommended as a basis for trial.

Fillebond VA                 250     g/L

Licisol oil HS                  03 -04 g/L

As a Bonding and Laminating Agent

Fillebond VA is an effective bonding and laminating agent possessing good adhesive properties and may be used in doubling or combining processes. The dispersion is applied by spreading machine and normal drying temperatures are sufficient to affect the bond.

For production of Non slip finishes

Fillebond VA may be used in the production of non slip finishes, on loosely woven rayon goods and for protective coating on yarns and fabrics an improvement in the draping properties is obtained and the tendency to pilling is reduced.

Fillebond VA is not normally substantive to textile fibres and is best applied to piece goods by padding. It may be applied to knitted goods by impregnation below 30 °C.

As general finish, impregnation liquor containing 10 – 50 g/L of Fillebond VA should be used.

Fibre Field of use Condition of application

Full firm finishes Apply 5-25g/l depending on the

degree stiffness required Usually

applied by padding and drying.

 

Synthetic Knitted Fabric: Firms handle and snag Resistance

 

Apply 02-20g/l on winch or

machine

Use of Fillebond VA with softeners

Attractive, full, firm finishes are produced on Cotton, Viscose, Rayon or Linen piece by applying a mixture of Fillebond VA and softening agents. The finish obtained may be varied within wide limits bearing in mind that higher the proportions of Fillebond VA, the stiffer will be the effect. Depending on the handle required, the quantities of resin and softener used may be varied between the following limits:

Fillebond VA                                           05 – 50 g/L

Softener                                                   05 – 20 g/L

Recommended softeners are Softicil ESP or Softicil AN-CP. The softeners may be dispersed by stirring in ten times its weight of water 80 – 100° C. Dilute the resin separately with ten times its weight of cold water. Add the dispersion separately to cold water in the vessel intended for use and make up volume with cold water. The best method of application is by padding and drying without rinsing off. However, a winch or jig may be used, if desired.

Storage

Recommended Applications / Recipes 

  1. Metacil DA-DLP used as dispersing and levelling agent in dyeing polyester

Metacil DA-DLP is suitable for use on all types of high temperature dyeing machinery. After scouring the goods where necessary, the dye bath is set with fresh water and the temperature rose to 60 º C.

Meanwhile the Metacil DA-DLP is pre-diluted by adding the product to 4-5 times its own volume of warm water

 

Metacil DA-DLP                                                    0.5-1.0 g/l

Metacil HTS (sequestering agent)                    0.5 g/l Acetic acid or Acid buffer

Adjust pH to                                                          4.5-5.5

Disperse dye                                                         x% owf 

Add pre-diluted Metacil DA-DLP to the bath together with other chemical required (sequestering agent, acid/acid buffer), and circulate

Adjust to pH 4.5 – 5.5. Add well-dispersed dyestuff, preferably through a sieve or filter Raise  temperature  from  60  ºC  to  maximum  dyeing  temperature  (130-135°C)  at  desired temperature gradient. Rapid rates of rise of 2-4 °C per minute are possible. Run 30-60 minutes Cool to temperature at which the liquor can safely be drained without causing creasing, then rinse or back-scour/reduction clear as necessary

As a Bonding and Laminating Agent

  1. Metacil DA-DLP used as stripping agent or re- leveling of faulty dyeing

Metacil DA-DLP can be used to correct un-level dyeing or to reduce the depth of dyeing dyed too heavily

Treat for 30 – 60 minutes with:

Metacil DA-DLP 2 – 5 g/l, at maximum dyeing temperature.

This treatment will hold the dye removed in the bath. If shading corrections are necessary, these should be carried out after first replacing all or most of the bath otherwise such high concentrations of Metacil DA-DLP will not permit good exhaustion.

Stripping or re-leveling treatments should be followed by thorough rinsing and reduction clearing to ensure maximum fastness.

  1. Reduction Clearing Treatment

Metacil DN-VL                                                      1 g/l

NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide, solid)                     2 g/l

Constitution                                          Heterocyclic amine derivative

Appearance                                          Yellow liquid

Solubility                                                Soluble in water

Compatibility                                         Compatible with most anionic, non- Ionic and cationic agents, diluteacids and alkalis

  • Increases solubility of reactive and direct dyes
  • Improves dispersion of vat and sulphur dyes
  • Helps overcome dye uptake variation of yarns of different origin or quality – helps eliminate “reediness” or “barré” effects on cotton and viscose
  • Helps overcome BLUE-YELLOW separation with greens based on phthalocyanine turquoise dyes
  • Amphoteric – therefore compatible with nonionic, anionic and cationic systems, under alkaline and acidic conditions
  • Does not  contain  non-ionic  components,  which  are  sometimes  used  as  leveling agents, and which result in restraining action and loss in yield
  • Non-foaming
  • Low viscosity, free-flowing liquid, suitable for liquid dispensing
  • Readily soluble in water 

Characteristics 

  1. Metacil LD-VRD enables level dyeing to be produced with vat, reactive, direct, and sulphur dyes on cellulosic fibers by improving the migration/transfer properties of the dyes, ensuring level results every time
  2. Excellent results are obtained when Metacil LD-VRD is used to correct, or level, faulty dyeing originally dyed without Metacil LD-VRD
  3. No shade changes or losses in yield when Metacil LD-VRD is present in the dye-bath or pad- liquor
  4. Suitable for all dyeing machines, even the most liquor- turbulent systems, batch-wise or continuous
  5. Its amphoteric nature makes it suitable for application of all dye classes in alkaline or acidic conditions
  6. Metacil LD-VRD  prevents  dye  spots  and  specking  with  susceptible  dyes  by  limiting aggregation and providing some dispersing action which prevents agglomeration
  7. Metacil LD-VRD can be shown to preserve the reducing condition of vatted liquor for longer periods of time, hence giving savings in reducing agent. It promotes quick and thorough reduction in the steamer with vat dyes applied by pad-dry-chemical pad-steam

Applications 

Metacil LD-VRD is believed to have several modes of action operating concurrently:

“Zwitterion effect is thought to limit aggregation of dyestuffs, increase diffusion, and increase solubility of dyestuffs

  • “Amphoteric nature  offers  opportunity  for  adsorption  at  fiber/water  interface  and  to compete with dye for uptake
  • “Amphoteric nature also offers opportunity for adsorption at dye/water interface, making dye less mobile, or acting as dispersing agent 

Recommended Applications / Recipes 

  1. General

Metacil LD-VRD may be used in package, beam, winch, jet, jig, or pad-mangle machines for leveling vat, reactive, direct or sulphur dyes.

Product Data Sheet

MetacilMKS 540 EXP is an efficient  sequestering  agent  for iron,  calcium,  magnesium,  and  heavy metal ion which retains its effective performance  at high temperatures and also in the presence of high concentrations of electrolyte and alkali.

TYPICAL PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES 

Type                                                        Anionic

Constitution                                         Oragano Phosphorous compound

Appearance                                          Transparent liquid

PH                                                           0.5-2.0

Solubility                                              Readily soluble in cold water

Compatibility                                       Compatible with anionic and non-ionic products, should not be used with cationic products 

Your Advantages 

  1. Eliminates calcium and magnesium powdery precipitates or lime soap deposits on the textile goods and prevents build-up of insoluble scale on machinery
  2. Water absorbency, softness and winding properties of yarn are improved
  3. Dyeing are brighter, whites are whiter
  4. Reproducibility is  improved  by  ensuring  a  uniform  preparation  and  by  preventing  shade change with dyes sensitive to metal impurities
  5. Can be used at all stages of textile processing i.e. in scouring, bleaching, dyeing, printing or finishing
  6. MetacilMKS 540 EXP exhibits a ‘threshold’ effect to maintain clarity in supersaturated solutions of CaCO3, CaSO4,  BaSO4,  Fe(OH)3  ,  with  very  small  concentrations   of  sequestering agent. Molecules of MetacilMKS 540 EXP are adsorbed onto the surface of the growing nuclei during crystallization of calcium or magnesium scales, thus altering the crystal growth pattern and delaying or inhibiting scale formation
  7. Metacil SECHO  K  is  hydrolytically   stable  and  is  therefore  much  more  effective  than polyphosphates   at  high     Sodium   hexametaphosphate   and  tripolyphosphatehydrolyse  to orthophosphate  at temperatures  above 80°C and become ineffective  either as sequestering agents or in the dispersion and suspension of soil
  8. MetacilMKS 540 EXP is capable of  suspending  and  dispersing  the  soil  during  scouring  and bleaching and preventing its re-deposition
  9. MetacilMKS 540 EXP encourages separation and dispersion of colloidal suspended particles. It is used with  silicate  in  peroxide  bleaches,  stabilizing  the  peroxide  and  preventing  insoluble silicates

Recommended Applications / Recipes 

  • To sequester calcium and magnesium impurities in cotton knitted fabric and improve bleach whiteness

To encounter the problem in producing a consistent white

An addition of MetacilMKS 540 EXP 0.1 – 1 g/l should make to the normal bleaching recipe which will give a marked improvement in whiteness, and reproducibility. 

  • To sequester calcium and magnesium impurities in hard water and in cotton knitted fabric and eliminate precipitation problems experienced in dyeing

Fully prepared, peroxide bleached fabrics still contain a high concentration of calcium impurities. This can result in dyestuff precipitation problems

An addition of MetacilMKS 540 EXP 0.1 – 1 g/l to the reactive dyebath will eliminate problems of white precipitate on the fabric and lime-soaps forming with addition of detergents

1.3 In one bath dyeing methods for polyester-cellulose using disperse dyes and reactive or direct dyes

Under  conditions  where  calcium  and  magnesium   occur,  either  in  the  water  supply,  in  the substrate,  or in the Glauber’s  salt, MetacilMKS 540 EXP, high temperature  sequestering  agent,  is recommended  at 0.5 g/l. If metal impurities are known to be present in the fiber, further addition of MetacilMKS 540 EXP 0.1 g/l is additionally recommended in the scour or scour bleach stage 

  1. MetacilMKS 540 EXP in dyeing

2.1 General

Metal   ions   can   interact   with   dye   molecules   to   form   insoluble   salts   causing   increased agglomeration or precipitation.  In extreme cases, lower color yields, unleveled dyeing, spots and stains, poor rubbing fastness, or a change in shade may result

2.2 Reactive dyes and direct dyes

High levels of calcium and magnesium, whether originating in the water supply, the salt used in dyeing, or in the cotton itself, may cause precipitation of certain dyes

This may lead to:

  • Reduction in dye yield and loss of reproducibility
  • Unleveled dyeing – especially in yarn dyeing where the tightly wound dye packages act as a filter
  • Reduction in fastness properties
  • Loss of “Right First Time” production

The dyestuffs themselves may act as chelating agents for metal impurities, and the metal chelate will alter the shade of the dye

Generally the shade of the dye-metal chelate is duller

During most reactive dyeing, fixation is achieved by addition of sodium carbonate, caustic sodaor similar alkalis. If high levels of calcium and/or magnesium are present, insoluble carbonates or hydroxides will precipitate onto the goods, and a consequent reduction in the pH achieved may lead to an irreproducible loss of the dye yield.

2.3 Vat dyes

The leuco form of vat dyes will form insoluble salts with heavy metal ions 

2.4 Sulphur dyes

Heavy metal ions result in uneven surface oxidation and hence bronzing and poor rub fastness of sulphur dyes. 

Storage

Stable under normal conditions, the product should be stored away from heat and containershould be properly capped all the time.

 Product Data Sheet

Metacil PN is a cationic fixing agent used to improve the wet fastness properties of direct and

reactive dyes on cellulosic fibers.

Properties 

Type                             Cationic

Appearance                  Colourless slightly hazy liquid

PH                                2.7-3.3

Solubility                     Readily soluble in cold water

Compatibility               Compatible with cationic and non-ionic products, should not be used with

anionic products, sulphates, phosphates or nitrates

  • Has affinity for the fibre, therefore after-treatment may be carried out batch-wise or continuously.
  • Improves the wash fastness of direct dyeing to a marked extent, and their fastness to cold water

and perspiration even more effectively.

  • Enhances the fastness of fibrescoloured with reactive dyes, to washing and contact staining

tests, and reduces the risk of their fastness properties being impaired by acid hydrolysis or at

high temperatures (where relevant).

  • Prevents migration of direct dyes (or loose hydrolysed reactive dye) during drying operations.
  • Affects light fastness of direct and reactive dyes if applied in excessive concentrations.
  • Not stable to Glaubers Salt and dyeing should be well rinsed before application of Metacil PN.

Application is recommended where the goods are to be left standing in a wet state for some time

before drying, or where migration problems are likely to occur during drying because unfixed dye

has not been effectively removed

Product Data Sheet

Metacil  SECHO K is an efficient  sequestering  agent  for iron,  calcium,  magnesium,  and  heavy metal ion which retains its effective performance  at high temperatures and also in the presence of high concentrations of electrolyte and alkali.

TYPICAL PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES 

Type                                                       Anionic

Constitution                                          Oragano Phosphorous compound

Appearance                                          Transparent liquid

PH (10% solution)                                0.5-2.0

Solubility                                                Readily soluble in cold water

Compatibility                                         Compatible with anionic and non-ionic products, should not be used with cationic products 

Your Advantages

 Eliminates calcium and magnesium powdery precipitates or lime soap deposits on the textile goods and prevents build-up of insoluble scale on machinery

  1. Water absorbency, softness and winding properties of yarn are improved
  2. Dyeing are brighter, whites are whiter
  3. Reproducibility is  improved  by  ensuring  a  uniform  preparation  and  by  preventing  shade change with dyes sensitive to metal impurities
  4. Can be used at all stages of textile processing i.e. in scouring, bleaching, dyeing, printing or finishing
  5. Metacil SECHO K exhibits a ‘threshold’ effect to maintain clarity in supersaturated solutions of CaCO3, CaSO4,  BaSO4,  Fe(OH)3  ,  with  very  small  concentrations   of  sequestering agent. Molecules of Metacil SECHO K are adsorbed onto the surface of the growing nuclei during crystallization of calcium or magnesium scales, thus altering the crystal growth pattern and delaying or inhibiting scale formation
  6. Metacil SECHO  K  is  hydrolytically   stable  and  is  therefore  much  more  effective  than polyphosphates   at  high     Sodium   hexametaphosphate   and  tripolyphosphatehydrolyse  to orthophosphate  at temperatures  above 80°C and become ineffective  either as sequestering agents or in the dispersion and suspension of soil
  7. Metacil SECHO K is capable  of  suspending  and  dispersing  the  soil  during  scouring  and bleaching and preventing its re-deposition
  8. Metacil SECHO K encourages separation and dispersion of colloidal suspended particles. It is used with  silicate  in  peroxide  bleaches,  stabilizing  the  peroxide  and  preventing  insoluble silicates
  9. Nodemutualizingofmetal-containingreactivedyes

Usage Profile

Equipment/Process

ü ü ü ü ü ü ü ü

Recommended Applications / Recipes

 To sequester calcium and magnesium impurities in cotton knitted fabric and improve bleach whiteness

To encounter the problem in producing a consistent white

An addition of Metacil SECHO K 0.1 – 1 g/l should make to the normal bleaching recipe which will give a marked improvement in whiteness, and reproducibility.

 To sequester calcium and magnesium impurities in hard water and in cotton knitted fabric and eliminate precipitation problems experienced in dyeing

Fully prepared, peroxide bleached fabrics still contain a high concentration of calcium impurities. This can result in dyestuff precipitation problems

An addition of Metacil SECHO K 0.1 – 1 g/l to the reactive dyebath will eliminate problems of white precipitate on the fabric and lime-soaps forming with addition of detergents

1.3 In one bath dyeing methods for polyester-cellulose using disperse dyes and reactive or direct dyes

Under  conditions  where  calcium  and  magnesium   occur,  either  in  the  water  supply,  in  the substrate,  or in the Glauber’s  salt, Metacil  SECHO  K, high temperature  sequestering  agent,  is recommended  at 0.5 g/l. If metal impurities are known to be present in the fiber, further addition of Metacil SECHO K 0.1 g/l is additionally recommended in the scour or scour bleach stage

 Metacil SECHO K in dyeing

2.1 General

Metal   ions   can   interact   with   dye   molecules   to   form   insoluble   salts   causing   increased agglomeration or precipitation.  In extreme cases, lower color yields, unleveled dyeing, spots and stains, poor rubbing fastness, or a change in shade may result

2.2 Reactive dyes and direct dyes

High levels of calcium and magnesium, whether originating in the water supply, the salt used in dyeing, or in the cotton itself, may cause precipitation of certain dyes

This may lead to:

  • Reduction in dye yield and loss of reproducibility
  • Unleveled dyeing – especially in yarn dyeing where the tightly wound dye packages act as a filter
  • Reduction in fastness properties
  • Loss of “Right First Time” production

The dyestuffs themselves may act as chelating agents for metal impurities, and the metal chelate will alter the shade of the dye

Generally the shade of the dye-metal chelate is duller

During most reactive dyeing, fixation is achieved by addition of sodium carbonate, caustic sodaor similar alkalis. If high levels of calcium and/or magnesium are present, insoluble carbonates or hydroxides will precipitate onto the goods, and a consequent reduction in the pH achieved may lead to an irreproducible loss of the dye yield.

2.3 Vat dyes

The leuco form of vat dyes will form insoluble salts with heavy metal ions 

2.4 Sulphur dyes

Heavy metal ions result in uneven surface oxidation and hence bronzing and poor rub fastness of sulphur dyes. 

Storage

Stable under normal conditions, the product should be stored away from heat and containershould be properly capped all the time.

Acetic acid (50%)                        1 –2 ml/l (adjust pH between 5-6) if required.

Liquor pick up                             70 – 90   % 

Do keep machinery clean. (When scouring, dyeing and softening on the same machine, oils and waxes tend to form a “tide mark”, a build up of scum, on the machine. All silicones are oil loving and will be attracted to this oily deposit, building up a silicone deposit which may eventually mark off onto fabric).

Do avoid strong acids and strong alkalis. All silicone emulsions will be broken under extreme pH conditions.

Storage

Stable under normal conditions, the product should be stored away from heat and container should be properly capped all the time (Cap the container after use). Avoid direct contact of sunlight.

 Recommended Application/ Recipes:

 Pre-dilution

The required amount of Texicil AN-GCG is diluted in cold water. Other finishing chemicals are added and finally, the diluted catalyst before making up the final volume with water.

  1. General

The amount of Texicil AN-GCG required should be in the region of

Texicil AN-GCG                         35 – 130 g/l

depending on the fabric and the desired effect. Under normal curing conditions, the preferred catalyst is:-Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate 15% on weight of resin but when flash cure conditions are encountered, a small amount of either Sodium Fluoroborate or Aluminium Chloride 0.2g/l is required in addition to the magnesium chloride.

The fabrics should be padded at 60 – 80% pick up and dried at 110°C before curing at 150 -180°C.The time of curing is dependent on the temperature and length of the stenter and may vary between e.g. 2 minutes and 30 seconds according to temperature.

It is recommended that a small amount of a non-ionic wetting agent e.g.:- Licisol AN-LD 0.25g/l. is incorporated into all finishing baths to achieve even wetting out of the fabrics, except were this will impair the final result e.g. waterproofing and fluorocarbon finishes.

Texicil TM Extra is a finishing agent designed for the treatment of fabrics containing polyester fibres to confer a hydrophilic/oleophobic effect as opposed to the inherent hydrophobic/oleophilic nature of polyester. These changes to the polyester fibre confer the following advantages to

garment wearers:

 Increased comfort in wear. The garment willabsorbperspiration much more readily. Texicil TM Extra also gives a softer handle to unsoftened fabrics.

Antistatic effect.Texicil TM Extra minimizes the buildup of static charges in a garment during wear and, therefore, reduces the clinging effect. The pick-up of airborne dust is also reduced.

Lower soil redeposition. The graying or dulling of garments that occurs during domestic washing is markedly reduced.

Enhanced stain removal. The removal of oily or greasy tains by domestic washing is made much easier.

Texicil TM Extra also confers properties, which benefit the textile processor.

Reduced fabric creasing.

Oil spots and stains are reduced or more easily removed.

Stenter-end static reduced.

The hydrophilic properties and fibre-to-fibre lubricant properties of Texicil TM Extra combine to give the

following benefits to the processor when applied in the dyebath:Reduces deposits and redeposition of oils on the fabric.

A pre-scour may be unnecessary except for the most severe contamination.Reduces the formation of creases, rope marks, and “crows feet” marks on weft- and warp-knitted as well as on woven fabrics. In some cases the excellent anti- crease properties of TexicilTMExtraallow pre-setting to be eliminated.

Gives the fabric better cutting and sewing performance compared with the same fabric dyed without

Texicil TM Extra.Imparts a pleasing, soft dry handle to the fabric.Reducesstenter-end static. The clinging of lint and fibre dust after final heat setting or drying is significantly reduced when Texicil TM Extra has been added to the dyebath. “Cling” problems at the maker-up can also be eliminated. Note that with some fabrics, the fibre-to-fibrelubricant action of Texicil TM Extra can cause some yarn slippage, pulling or snagging. In such cases the application level should be reduced to

Texicil TM Extra 1 – 3% owf

  1. a) Batchwise application to 100% Polyester fabrics. 
  1. General.

In batchwise dyeing, the application of Texicil TM Extra is normally made from the dyebath. Winch, jet, beam andpackage dyeing machines are all suitable.When large quantities of dispersing agent are presentin the dyebath, or when a subsequent reduction clear is to begiven, it may be necessary to apply Texicil TM Extra asanaftertreatment in order to obtain the optimum beneficial

Effects

  1. Application in the (batchwise) dyebath.

To confer all the effects detailed above the optimum application level is:

 Texicil TM Extra 2 -4% owf

The Texicil TM Extra is diluted by stirring during the steady addition of approximately four volumes of cold water (<40oC, mixing directly with hot water is not advised since the dispersion stability may be affected).

  1. Application from rinse bath after dyeing or after reduction clearing.

 The bath should be acidic (pH 4-5) throughout the treatment.The optimum application level based on the dry weight offabric is: Texicil TM Extra 2.0 – 4.0% owfThe diluted Texicil TM Extra is added to the acidified bath at40°C or below. Raise temperature to 80°C and run 15-20minutes. Cool, rinse lightly with cold water, dry and heat-set.

4.) Use of Texicil TM Extra in rapid dyeing cycles.

Because Texicil TM Extra has fibre-to-fibre lubricant properties, it promotes more rapid equilibration and relaxation of polyester fabric, thus permitting more rapid heating up and cooling down

sequences.

Example: Typical textured weft-knitted polyester piece. Short cold rinse to remove excess coning oil.

 

Set bath at 40°C with Texicil TM Extra 1 -3% owf and acetic acid to pH 4.5 to 5.5. Raise to 70°C at maximum rate of rise. Add Metacil DAN 0.5 g/l. Add well dispersed disperse dyes. Hold at 70°C for 10 minutes to allow disperse dye(s) to equalize throughout the dye bath and Texicil TM Extra to exhaust.

Raise to 130°C at a rate compatible with fabric construction and machine Hold for 15 minutes.Cool to 80°C also at a compatible rate. Cold rinse.

 b) Application to 100% polyester yarn and sewing thread.

White yarns and threads are those which benefit most from the application of Texicil TM Extra, which follows the same sequence as for100% polyester fabrics (see a)2 and a)5 above). However, the fibre-to-fibre lubricant properties of Texicil TM Extra will reducefibre-to-fibre friction properties to an extent that an  application of 4% Texicil TM Extra may cause the yarn to fall off the package. A MAXIMUM OF

Texicil TM Extra 1 – 3% owf SHOULD BE

 APPLIED TO YARN.

N.B. In any case, Texicil TM Extra should not be applied to airtexturedyarns since the lubricity may cause a permanentreduction in the degree of coil in such yarns.

 c) Application from chlorite bleach bath.

 Texicil TM Extra is substantially unaffected by sodium chlorite and may be applied in the combined chlorite bleach/fluorescent brightening process for 100% polyester.

 d) Continuous processing for 100% polyester fabrics.

 General.

For woven lightweight fabrics and other suitable constructions it may be

Texicil TM Extra 2-4% owfA wet-on-wet technique can also be used.

 In heavy shades.

The anti-soil properties and stain release properties imparted by Texicil TM Extra are less important with heavy shades than with white and pastel shades. It is therefore recommended

thata reduced application level of- Texicil TM Extra 0.5-2.0% owfis applied, which will still confer durable antistatic properties and increased absorbency.

 e) Texicil TM Extra on prints.

Screen – or roller printing onto fabric previously treated with Texicil TM Extra can give marking-off

problems and is NOT RECOMMENDED. For application of Texicil TM Extra to prints, the best method is to after- pad and wash-off print (either wet-on-dry or wet-on-wet) to

giveTexicil TM Extra 2-4% owffollowed by drying at 110-130°C. In transfer printing, which is a dry printing process, there are no problems of marking-off and fabric treated with Texicil TM Extracanbe

transfer-printed by the normal methods.

  1. f) Continuous application to polyester/cellulose fibre blends.

 g) High stain release coupled with good absorbency.

On certain polyester/cellulosic blend textiles there is a high requirement for the combined properties of stain release and absorbency (e.g. for table linen and bed linen). Texicil TM Extra is only effective on the polyester component and a fluoro-chemical product is required to give adequate stain

release properties on the cellulosic fibre. Finishing with fluoro-chemical alone, however, whilst giving the

required stain release effect, also gives a very effective water-repellent finish, the opposite to what

is required. A combination of the two stain release products gives a finish having the required combination of high stain release and good absorbency.

For example:

 Texicil TM Extra 3.0-4.0% owf”Scotchgard” FC218 1.2-1.5% owf (3M company)

  1. h) Polyester/wool blends. In certain areas of low relative humidity,problems of static charge build-up on

polyester/wool blend fabrics can arise. These problems can be eliminated by giving a final

padding treatment with:Texicil TM Extra Pad at pH 5, dry at 130°C to give a finish of reasonable

durability to washing and dry cleaning. Texicil TM Extra also imparts a soft handle to polyester/wool blend fabrics.

 

  1. General.

The advantages displayed by Texicil TM Extra treatment on 65/35 blends of polyester/cellulosic fibre are the same as for 100% polyester materials.Although development of static charges is not a major problem because of the cellulosic fibrecontent. Blends of the ratio are widely used because of their

absorbency but a resin finish can reduce the absorbency or even give non-absorbent effect. Introducing Texicil TM Extrainto the mix restores the moisture absorbency.

On 50/50 blends of polyester/cellulosic fibre there is less polyester for the Texicil TM Extra to be effective upon. It will, however, still give protection against soiling. Texicil TM Extra is normally applied to white and pale shades, since greying or dulling cannot be seen on heavier shades. It may be used on both unresinated and permanent press fabrics. For the finishing of white fabrics, Texicil TM Extracan be applied together with the polyester fluorescent brightening agent prior to heat-setting if this is the normal

method employed.

 

  1. Product Selection.

Whilst Texicil TM Extra is compatible in most resin baths, the resins, catalysts, softeners, lubricants, etc., which are to be used with Texicil TM Extra must be carefully selected since certain of these products tend to increase soiling and thus neutralise the effect of the Texicil TM Extra. The curing condition, for a resin finish will also be adequate for the Texicil TM Extra finish. Guidelines for product selection are

given below.

Suitable resin types:                                           Dimethyloldihydroxyethylene urea, dimethylolethylene urea, propylene urea, carbamate

Unsuitable resin types:                                      Melamine formaldehyde

Suitable catalyst:                                 Magnesium chloride is preferred.

Suitable softener and lubricants:                      Polyethylene wax and silicone softeners, polyvinyl acetate and

soft acrylic

 

Non-ionic softeners are generally the best and Softicil NIS has

been found to be the ideal softener for use with Texicil TM Extra.

Softicil NIS does not affect the anti-soil properties conferred by

   Texicil TM Extra, and does not yellow, even under the most severe curing conditions for fluorescent brightening agents or resins. For a firmer handle carboxymethylcellulose or polyvinyl alcohol can be used.

 Application to whites.

 Unresinated:

The fabric is fully desized, scoured and chemically bleached. Texicil TM is applied from the same pad-bath as the fluorescent brightening agent:

e.g. Texicil TM 2.0-4.0% owf

FBA for polyester fibres According to manufacturer’s recommendations (plus tinting dyes if required).

Dry and heat set for 30 seconds at 180-190°C

Resinated:

The most frequently employed method is to incorporate Texicil TM Extra and the resin finishing components and softenersinto the fluorescent brightening agent pad-bath, i.e., padbath

is made up to give: Texicil TM Extra 2.0-4.0% FBA for polyester fibres According to manufacturers

recommendations (Plus tinting dyes if required) Resin + catalyst SofticilNISCuring is at 180-190°C for 30 seconds

  Application to coloureds.

 Texicil TM Extra is after-padded onto the dyed fabric either alone or together with other finishing agents. After drying, heat-set at 160-190°C. Padding conditions should be such as to give:

 Texicil TM Extra 3.0-4.0% owf (i.e. dry weight of fabric)

 Softening of polyester / viscose suiting.

Polyester/viscose suiting can be given a reasonably durable soft handle by applying: Texicil TM Extra 3.0-4.0% owf

Storage

When it is stored in original sealed containers at temperatures of between 5 0C and 35 0C, Texicil Binder AN-PBL has a shelf life of at least 12 months. Once a drum has been opened, the contents should be used up as soon as possible.

Product Data Sheet

High-temperature α-amylase is refined by bacillus licheniformis through submerged fermentation, abstraction and other procedures. It can random hydrolyze amylum materials and the α-1.4 glycosidic bond of its degradation materials, thus make the viscosity of the amylum solution decrease, and produce soluble dextrin and oligosaccharide. In addition, excessive hydrolysis can produce a few glucose and maltose.

High-temperature α-amylase has very good heat-durability. It can be widely used in the production of amylum, alcohol, beer, monosodium glutamate, glucose, maltose, textile, and other industries. Compared with the medium temperature amylase, this product can liquefy the material more thoroughly in the process of producing beer. The mash has more distinct layer, lower chrominance and shorter time of gelatinization and filtrate thus improve the usage of the equipment and the material, which can realize the no-maltose gelatinization operation and improve the usage of auxiliary materials. It’s more beneficial to the spray-liquefy technology. Moreover it can reduce the production costs of beer, improve the quality of the beer and increase economic returns.

 DEFINITION OF ENZYME ACTIVITY

 One unit of enzyme activity is defined as the required enzyme amount of 1ml enzyme solution to liquefy 1mg solubility amylum in one minute at PH 6.0 and 70°C.

 CHARACTERIZATIONOFTHEPRODUCT

 Mode of action

 Calcium ion has less effect on the stability of the enzyme activities. Low concentration calcium ion can make this product have very good stability. We recommend adding 50-100PPM calcium ion when hydrolyzing the amylum.

Heat-stability

 During the spray-liquefy technology, when the instant temperature goes up to 105-110°C it still can hydrolyze the amylum effectively. This product has good heat endurance.

TYPICAL PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

 Appearance                          brown liquid

Odor                                       no pungent smell

Solubility                                easy to dissolve in water

Activity                                  30,000 u/ml

 PH stability

 It is stable when PH is between 5.0 and 8.0; the best action PH is 5.5-7.0. It will become inactive badly when PH is lower than 5.0.

The relationship with the starch concentration

 The raise of the concentrations of the starch and its hydrolysate dextrin has great effect on the stability of the enzyme activity.  With  the  increase  of  the  starch  concentration,  the  stability  of  the  activity enhanced.

The effect of the calcium ion concentration on the enzyme activity

 Calcium ion can improve the heat endurance of the enzyme. The heat endurance of the enzyme will reduce without calcium ion

PACKAGING, TRANSPORTATION & STORAGE

 This product is kept in 25 kg non-toxic plastic barrel. This product with high biology activity materials shall be kept at low temperature, dry and no sunshine places. It can be kept 3 months at room-temperature and 6 months at the temperature of 25°C without inactivation. The enzyme activity is higher than 90% of the labeled number.

The raise of the concentrations of the starch and its hydrolysate dextrin has great effect on the stability of the enzyme activity. With  the  increase  of  the  starch  concentration,  the  stability  of  the  activity enhanced.

The effect of the calcium ion concentration on the enzyme activity

 Calcium ion can improve the heat endurance of the enzyme. The heat endurance of the enzyme will reduce without calcium ion.

PACKAGING, TRANSPORTATION & STORAGE

 This product is kept in 60 & 200 kg non-toxic plastic drums. This product with high biology activity materials shall be kept at low temperature, dry and no sunshine places. It can be kept 3 months at room- temperature and 6 months at the temperature of 25°C without inactivation. If a few deposits existed, shake well before using, which has the same effect.

METHOD EMPLOYED AND REFERENCE DOSAGE

 Application in the textile desizing

Liquid amylase can be used to desize the textile, whose plasm material is starch, especially applicable for  those  products  such  as  high  temperature  and  chemical  fiber  linsey-woolsey. Water bath at 70 – 95°C for 20-40min.

 Applications

 General

The concentration of Wuxizyme TS-350 to be used will vary according to the type of size mix, the amount of size used, the fabric construction and the processing conditions employed. Optimal conditions for removing size with Wuxizyme TS- 350 are: pH 5.0 to 7.5

These optimum conditions are also quite suitable for removing most synthetic sizes, such as PV Acetate, PV Alcohol and Polyacrylate. Where the synthetic size makes up more than 25% of the size mixture, good control of pH is essential to aid complete removal of the synthetic size

Recommended Applications / Recipes
