CELLUWET 5404A is a unique, predominantly nonionic, high performance wetting agent designed for rapid, controlled wetting of cotton and other cellulosic fabrics and yarns in batch and continuous bleaching, scouring and dyeing processes.
This unusually thorough and fast wetter exhibits very low foaming characteristics for such a versatile product, and is exceptionally easy to use. CELLUWET 5404A is soluble in water in all proportions and temperatures. The operative temperature range is from ambient bath to the boil.
CELLUWET 5404A is normally introduced to the bath in dilute form as the goods are being circulated and allowed to thoroughly wet and penetrate the fibers before the dyes or other auxiliaries are added. Normal usage levels are 1-4% owg.
CELLUWET 5404A is compatible and synergistic with other penetrating agents such as DYPENE BRM, which is an excellent choice for prescouring cotton goods to remove pectins, waxes and other impurities. An example would be as follows:
Soda Ash 3-5% owg
CHELFAC CFM 1%
CELLUWET 5404A 2-4%
Raise the bath to 140-180 deg F and run for 30 minutes.
Drop the bath and refill.
Rinse for 10 minutes.
Neutralize the bath with acetic acid.
