Applications by padding
When used alone, BLUESIL EMUL 12 should be diluted with cold water. The concentration of the padding liquid should be adjusted to give a pick-up of 1.0% to 2.0% silicone content on weight of fabric.
The pH of the bath should be adjusted below 5.5.
The fabric should be dried and cured, temperature of 150ºC is recommended.
When used with BLUESIL CATA 2812, dilute the catalyst in water and then add this to the already diluted emulsion. The 20% of BLUESIL CATA 2812, based on the amount of BLUESIL EMUL 12 is recommended to achieve excellent and durable water repellence.
The concentration of the padding liquid should be adjusted to give a pick-up of 1.0 - 2.0% silicone content on weight of fabric. The pH of the bath should be adjusted bellow 5.5. The exact level required will depend upon the type of substrate. The fabric should be dried and cured, temperature of 150ºC is recommended.
Although BLUESIL EMUL 12 is compatible with the majority of resins used in textile finishing, the compatibility of the system should be pre-checked prior to use.
|BLUESIL EMUL 12 may be stored at temperatures between 2°C / 36°F and 30°C / 86°F for up to 12 months from its date of manufacturing.||Please consult the Safety Data Sheet of this product.|
