This product can beapplied on cotton and polyester material, including VISA
Dosing levels are dependent on wash classification. Starch should be applied in the last rinse of a washer extractor or in the last section of a continuous batch washer.
Recommended dosage: Cotton: 4.5 g/kg (for light stiffening) to 18 g/kg (for firm stiffening) Polyester (100 % VISA): 15 - 20 g/kg (for firm stiffening)
Please note the following:
• The bath level of the starch-processing step should be as low as possible, as to increase the starch concentration. This will result in a cost-effective process.
• During starching the pH of the solution should be around 5.5.
• The risk of bacterial growth is high when starch is left in the last section of a tunnel washer over night or, even worse, during a weekend. It is therefore recommended to avoid situations where classifications that need starch, are the last oneís to be processed at the end of the day.
• To minimise risk it is advised not to process starch classifications in a tunnel washer that is also used for washing hospital linen. In those cases where this cannot be avoided, it is necessary to suppress bacterial growth by applying Clax Neutrax.
