It is stable in weak acids, alkalis and optical brightening agent and miscible with hot or cold water in all proportions. UNITACK-PT may be diluted in any proportion with either soft or hard water to give good dispersion with good stability Since UNITACK-PT contains plasticizer, therefore wide range of finishes on synthetic and natural fabrics varying from stiff effects to full soft effects may be obtained. It is a APEO/NPEO free product and conforms to Oeko-tex and REACH compliance as well.

How to Apply

UNITACK-PT is better applied to piece goods by padding. It may be applied to knitted goods by impregnation. If desired a standing bath may be employed.

As a general finish an impregnation liquor containing 10-50 parts of UNITACK-PT per 1000 parts of water may be used for the production of Bucrum cloth as interline fabric for garment manufacturer. UNITACKPT can be used in combination with starch or a carboxyl methyl cellulose (CMC) product and resin UNIFIX-G to get stitness as well as pliability in the fabric. If the fabric is cured / dried properly the finish can stand for many washes, UNITACK-PT also provides effective back sizing on carpets by normal equipments The concentration for UNITACK-PT may be taken according to the desired thickness and pliability, by diluting the resin with cold water and adding directly to the size box. The treatment is carried out cold through out. Normally 10-30 g/l is recommended in padding application. Attractive full firm finishes are produced on cotton, polyester and polyester / cellulose blend fabrics by applying UNITACK-PT with softening agents or our UNISOFT range Very useful binder for lacquer printing with titanium dioxide, which leaves the printed portions soft enough.
