SOFTCAT 175 is a substantive
type of Softener based on cation-active compounds and has been developed as softening
agent for cotton and synthetics. Being a cationactive substance, SOFTCAT 175 should
not be mixed with onion-active products like soaps, sulphonated oils, anion-active
detergents, Turkey Red oil, Optical whitening agents, etc. It is readily dispersible
in the rinsewater and rapidly absorbed on the fibre. This can be applied to the
wet materials easily and produces a very soft and pleasing handle with a pliable
and well lubricated surface on the goods.
175 paste should be 'creamed' with one to two times the weight of water (preferably
worm) with stirring. After such creaming it can be diluted with manual stirring
to a 10 or 20% stock solution with more water. SOFTCAT 175 may be applied by the
padding method or by the exhaustion method. 1 to 2% SOFTCAT 175 on the weight
of the goods may be used in the exhaustion method with sufficient time given for
adequate exhaustion, usually 30 to 45 minutes. For employment by the padding method,
treat with 2.5 to 20 gms./ litre of SOFTCAT 175.
NATURE:Fatty acid esters
Appearance : Off white poste
nature : Non-ionic
Dispersibility : Dispersible in water
Stability : Stable

SOFONIL is a non-ionic softening agent
of high resistance to heat, which is especially suitable for the finishing of
white goods. It does not affect the effect of optical whitening agents and also
it does not yellow the treated goods on storing.
. PADDING METHOD: The amount of SOFONIL to be employed by the padding method usually
depends on the type of finish and the effect desired; it is generally 5-20 gms./litre
2. EXHAUSTION METHOD: On the winch and in yarn dyeing machines,
the goods are treated for 15-20 minutes at 30-40'C with 1 to 3 gms./ litre SOFONIL.
The exact amount depends on the effect required and the liquor should be as short
as possible. Exhaustion can be improved by the addition of 0.5 - 1.0 gms./litre
of Acetic acid (40%). But then this is likely to have some effect on the shade
of dyeing or optical whitening agents. On the jigger, the amount required is 3
to 8 gms./ litre SOFONIL.
Appearance : Colourless Liquid
Solubility in water : Miscible in all proportions
EC is a cationic dye-fixing agent, miscible with water in all proportions, stable
to acids and unstable to alkalies. It finds use as an after-treating agent for
both reactive, direct dyed/printed goods to improve wet and perspiration fastness
remarkably. The goods treated with FASTFIX EC will show minimum shade change and
negligible loss in light fastness.
1 . The dyed
fibre/yarn is to be treated with 1.5% to 3% of FASTFIX EC at 40'C (approximately)
depending on the depth of the shade, based on weight of cloth as the final treatment.
The dyed fabrics can be treated with 2 to 4% FASTFIX EC on the weight of the goods
in the padding mangle for fabrics.
AGENT FOR MERCERISING
CHEMICAL NATURE: Sulphonated Alcohol
: Colourless to pale yellow liquid
Ionic nature : Anionic
Solubility : Easily
miscible with alkalies
Stability : Stable to strong alkalies
is an excellent wetting agent to give a rapid and uniform penetration of strong
alkaline solutions into cotton and polyester blends (Yarns/Fabrics) during mercerising
process. The high wetting out properties of MEROSOL enables good mercerisation
even in the grey stage, which enables the subsequent boiling treatment either
to be eliminated or carried out for a short duration. This results in softer yarns.
MEROSOL has additional usage of wetting in strong acidic solution and is also
effective in solution containing suit upto 20%. It is a mercerising agent with

AS is a speciality chemical, which is a new class of emulsion containing polymers
with highly reactive cross linkable functional groups. This creates most softness,
imparts increased tear strength, greater abrasion resistance while applied to
both natural and synthetic fabrics.
diluted with soft warm water to the required concentration (10 to 20 gms/litre).
This diluted emulsion is added to the padding though containing other additives
and pH is adjusted to 5.5. After the fabric is treated for a reasonable time which
is depending upon the process, it is dried to get a smooth soft feel to the fabrics.
1. To obtain soft lustrous finish on cotton fabric,
the fabric should be padded through diluted emulsion of 'TASILC-AS' at a concentration
of approximately 0.5% to 0.7% on weight of the material.
2. To obtain the above
finish on synthetics, the fabric should be treated through a diluted emulsion
of 'TASILC-AS' of a concentration between 0.25% to 0.5% on the weight of the material.

Ionic nature : Non-ionic
is an excellent silicone-based finishing softener/ repellent agent for cottons
and polyester blends as well as nylon and its blends. It can be applied at lower
dosage levels as a self-finish to confer softening effect and as a water-repellent
for Cotton fabrics (fancy umbrella cloth) at higher dosage levels.
should always be applied in the bath along with a catalyst in right proportions
and a final curing at 150 / 155'C for 4 mts. is recommended for an optimum and
1. As a Soft finish: 20 to 30
gms./ litre in the padding bath or 1.5 to 2% on the weight of goods in terms of
TASILC is recommended.
2. Water repellent finish: Mainly for cotton, polynosic
and other blends. The goods are to be padded in a bath containing 60 to 80 gms./
litre of TASILC, with the required amount of catalyst. The dried goods (preferably
on a stenter) are to be cured at 150 / 155'C for 4 mts.
3. In resin finishing:
TASILC is a very useful additive in resin finishing as it gives a remarkably soft
and supple handle in addition to improving the strength significantly. A dosage
level of 20 gms./ litre of TASILC (together with the requisite quantity of catalyst)
along with the resin and other auxiliaries is recommended.

FINWAX-PA is a wax emulsion
in the form of a near White emulsion, which disperses readily in water at working
temperatures. FINWAX-PA is a very stable wax emulsion, which can be dispersed
even in hard water. FINWAX-PA is anionic in character and is therefore compatible
with other finishing ingredients such as starches, gums, glue, gelatine, sodium
carboxy methyl cellulose, optical whitening agents etc. However, FINWAX-PA is
not compatible with Cationic Softeners or Cation surface active agents. FINWAX-PA
is widely used in the finishing of Cotton and Rayon fabrics as it imparts a soft
and pleasing handle to the fabrics as well as excellent lustre to the finished
fabrics, after calendering, it can be used either as a self finish or a combination
with starches and gums to achieve the desired finish.
To obtain soft lustrous finishes on cotton fabrics, the fabric should be padded
through an aqueous dispersion of FINWAX-PA at a concentration of approximately
0.5% to 1.5% on the weight of the finishing bath.
2. For obtaining soft
supple and lustrous finishes on rayon fabrics, they should be padded through an
aqueous dispersion of FINWAX-PA of a concentration between 0.25% and 0.5% on the
weight of the finishing bath.

TEXEMUL-MH imports body, weight and drape to textile
fabrics. Finishes obtained with this product are outstanding in transparency
is a thermoplastic resin and it produces semi-permanent finishes which satisfy
normal requirements of laundering. The wash fastness of the finishes can be enhanced
by incorporating other thermosetting resins in the finish.
TEXEMUL-MH is applied as the lost wet operation in the
finishing process. This is applied from a both of finishing composition and the
goods are impregnated by padding or similar techniques.
The liquor bath is
prepared by first diluting the emulsion with 5-10 times its volume of cold or
warm water. The additions are being made gradually with constraint stirring to
obtain a uniform dispersion. The diluted emulsion is then thinned with more wate;
to the required concentration, which depends on the resin pick-up desired on the
good and also on the wet expression of the mangle.
In general, the emulsion
concentration of the padding liquor may vary between 1% and 10% depending on the
This product is normally applied
for padding with a squeeze of 60-70 the temperature of the padding solution varying
between 25'C and 70'C, depending upon the wettability of the goods. Other application
methods in which jigger is also possible. After padding, the goods are dried at
temperature above 80'C on starter or drying cylinders, when drying on cylinders,
it is recommended to wrap the first few cylinders with cloth. If calendering is
required before folding and packing, then worm calendering is preferable in view
of the thermoplastic nature of TEXEMUL-MH as the finish may stick to the calendar
