Field of applicationKEOTECH K2 is used in fabrics printing and coating to get a two-tone effect. For this application, first printing or coating, and dyeing at a later stage, shall be performed.
Fabric will be characterized by two uniform colour shades: a more intense one on the area previously printed or coated with KEOTECH K2, and a lighter one on the untreated area.
Product’s viscosity may be adjusted only applying the specific SINTEX PUK thickener.
Printed/coated fabric is dyed with reactive, acid and direct dyestuffs.
The best two-tone effect is improved with reactive dyestuffs.
How to useBefore printing, add 20 g/Kg of diammonium phosphate solution 1:3 to KEOTECH K2.
Stir the compound, print or coat and dry.
Polymerize for 3 minutes at 150°C.
For silk or other particular fibers, for which polymerization at a 150°C is not possible, preliminary tests at lower temperatures are recommended, eventually increasing the polymerization time.
