Instructions to Use
The product can be diluted with soft water at ambient temperature and can be applied by both pad and exhaust method.
EXHAUSTION METHOD: PACIFIC FABSIL can be used in the concentration range of 0.4% to 1.5% by weight of the fabric or 4 to 15 grams per garment. The pH of the finish bath should be maintained at around 5. Recommended exhaustion time is 20 -30 minutes at about 40 °C bath temperature. The fabrics are then hydro-extracted followed by drying at temperatures above 100 °C for about 30 minutes.
PADDING METHOD: 3 to 10 gpl of PACIFIC FABSIL is taken in the padding bath and the pH of the bath is kept at 5. After application the fabric is cured for a short period at about 150 °C.
To ensure a better finish: Water hardness should be below 250 ppm, make fabric free from sizing agent and check for any pH drift during the softening cycle.
Handling and Safety
PACIFIC FABSIL may not be compatible with certain materials. It is deactivated by highly acidic materials and may cause gelation with chemicals containing hydroxy groups. Other materials such as anionics, lower alcohols salts etc. may break the silicone emulsion. It is recommended that any mixture of PACIFIC FABSIL emulsion with other materials be thoroughly checked before it is put into factory production.
