Strong dispersing, sequestring agent



Chemical composition: neutralised mixture of organic acids
Ionic charge: anionic
Appearance: clear liquid
pH (t.q): 5 - 7
Solubility in water: easy and complete
Shelf life: 6 months

Field of application

  1. KEON 50 M has an excellent complexing power for alkaline earth (Ca and Mg) and heavy metals (Fe, Cu, Mn), even with a highly alkaline pH (>12), solving all problems arising from an excessive water hardness, such as insoluble salt sedimentation or lack of dyestuffs homogeneity.
  2. KEON 50 M does not affect dyeing where 1: 1 and 1: 2 metal complex dyes are used.
  3. KEON 50 M does not affect stability neither in warm baths or in highly alkaline conditions.
  4. KEON 50 M is a powerful dispersing agent strengthening cleaning agents action in washing and soaping processes avoiding re-sedimentation of unfixed dyestuffs on fibres.
  5. KEON 50 M prevents sedimentation due to silicate involved in bleaching with hydrogen peroxide.
  6. KEON 50 M is chemically stable to hydrolysis both in acidic and in alkaline pH environments thus less sensitive to electrolytes.

How to use

Quantities recommended vary depending on machinery used, on liquor ratio and on processing complexity.

  • Synthetic fibres dyeing: 0,5 - 1 g/l of KEON 50 M
  • Dyeing with reactive and vat agents: 0,5 - 3 g/l of Keon 50 M
  • Impregnation baths - bleaching with Hydrogen peroxide: 1 - 2 g/l of KEON 50 M
  • Excessive soaping: 0,5 - 1 g/l of KEON 50 M
