Wetofast LOR is an agent with excellent emulsification power which helps to remove oils, waxes and greasy impurities effectively. Especially suitable for Lycra blended fabric to emulsify the oil and ease of extraction, it confirms high rewetting property to textile goods after bleaching process. Free from enzyme poison, it’s an APEO and NPEO free product and is exclusively recommended for continuous process where quick wetting is required to get sufficient pick-up for heavy gsm fabrics like twills. 0.5-1.0% dose for exhaust and 2-5g/l for continuous application are the recommended dosages for Wetofast LOR.
Wetofast LD is a wetting agent which confirms high absorbency to textile goods after bleaching process and is suitable for all types of fabrics. It helps in removing oils and waxes effectively.
