SOFTENER AND LEVELLING AGENT FOR AQUEOUS PIGMENT PRINTING
R-55 is a new softener which is designed for water based pigment printing.
R-55 is designed to improve the feel of the fabric printed with ZYCOPRINT (thickener) and ZYTROL range of binders. It also improves the solidity of the print. R-55 is specially designed not to affect the wet and dry rubbing fastness of the printed fabric.
It is recommended that with fully aqueous printing paste 2 to 2.5% of R-55 should be incorporated.
For part emulsion system, one may use between 1.5 to 1.8% of R-55, depending on the fabric softness desired.
R-55 should be used along with the binder during the preparation of aqueous printing paste.
