ZYCRON Pigment Emulsions

ZYCRON Pigment Emulsions are selected pigment colours in emulsion form. They have exceptional fineness of dispersion and excellent stability.

ZYCRON (PL) and ZYCRON (MD) range of Pigments are two separate productlines which are specially recommended for ZYCO-PLUS Pigment Dyeing System.

ZYCRON (PL) range is for pastel and light colour shade dyeing.

ZYCRON (MD) range is for medium and dark shades with abraded look. 

For dark solid look, use of ZYTREAT (ANIONIC) with ZYCRON (PL) range is recommended.

ZYCRON (PL) range is Cationic in nature and ZYCRON (MD) range is Anionic in nature.

Before application of ZYCRON Pigments, cellulosic goods should be exhausted with ZYTREAT (Cationic or Anionic) as per the need [Refer our literature on ZYCO-PLUSSystem for detailed application procedure].

ZYTREAT (CATIONIC)

ZYTREAT (CATIONIC) is a Pretreat Chemical recommended for cellulosics. ZYTREAT (CATIONIC) is applied prior to dyeing with ZYCO-PLUS Pigment Dyeing System for achieving Medium to Darker shades with ABRADED look.

ZYTREAT (CATIONIC) improves exhaustion of ZYCRON pigments. It also gives better colour values and improved levelling at the same dosage of ZYCRON Pigments.

Nature Cationic
Solid content 44 ± 2%

Preparation of the goods is important with a view to achieve uniform dye appearance. Fabric should be properly scoured and bleached to avoid defects due to the presence of Residual Alkali, Softeners, Oils, Soils, etc.

ZYTREAT (CATIONIC) can be applied by exhaust method as under:

  • The fabric should be treated with ZYTREAT (CATIONIC) for 15-20 minutes at room temperature upto 70°C at 3-5% level on the weight of goods.  The temperature should be increased at 2°C/minute till it reaches 70°C. Now drop the bath and rinse with cold water.
  • The cold water bath is dropped and filled with fresh water and the garments are ready for dyeing with ZYCO-PLUS Pigment Dyeing System.
  • It is advisable to dissolve it in one part of ZYTREAT (CATIONIC) and two parts of water before use.

  • Stable for 6 months if stored in a shade at room temperature in a closed container.
