GAPTEX REPAIR ACTIVATOR RA4-PD

- A product for pigment dyeing that replaces part of the anti-migrant and will repair small defects in the dyeing such as string marks, small pad scars, and small roll marks. This very viscous product also acts as a booster for the antimigrant and increases color yield 5% to 10%.





GAPTEX BUFFER AB

- Buffer for alkaline dyeing of polyester. Maintains the dispersion of trimer even at neutral pH. Doing alkaline dyeing of polyester eliminates trimer and the need for reduction clearing.

Normal usage level 5 g/l

- Self cross linking acrylic binder designed to be used as a binder for metallic pigments( silver, gold and other metals).

Normal usage level 1.0% to 10.0%



GATACRYL NT-FF

- Self cross linking acrylic binder for high wet fastness on pigment dyeing

Normal usage level 1.0% to 10.0%.





GATACRYL IFS

- Formaldehyde free acrylic binder with a firm but elastic hand. Used as a hand builder for products being exported to Germany.

Normal usage level 1.0% to 10.0%

- Hot aqueous defoamer that is 100% active. Excellent with disperse dyes. Tested to 280 DegF in jet dyeing. Also an excellent deareator for pressure systems.

Normal usage level 0.5 to 2 g/l





GAPTEX BEAM DISPERSANT

- Disperse dye dispersing agent - polymeric, sulfate and sulfonate condensate blend also an excellent dye solubilizer - disperse or reactive. To be used in pressure and atmospheric beam dyeing.

Normal usage level 0.25% to 2.0%





GAPTEX JET DISPERSANT( Low Foaming )

- Disperse dye dispersing agent - polymeric and sulfonate condensate blend also an excellent dye solubilizer - disperse or reactive. To be used in pressure and atmospheric jet dyeing.

Normal usage level 0.25% to 2.0%





GAPTEX FLOW ENHANCER TM

- Flow enhancer for beam dyeing that can be measured by a reduction in back pressure on the pump and an increase in static pressure on top of the beam. This product works by penetrating every part of the beam and making sure that water follows to every part.

Normal usage level 1 to 3 g/l







GATALUBE SW EXTRA

- Dye bath lubricant. Non-ionic and non-foaming copolymer lubricant for jet dyeing. Greatly improves runability, reduces tangles, and reduces "crack and crush" marks.

Normal usage level 0.5% to 3%





GATALUBE HE-1

- Jet dye lubricant for low wet modulus rayon that greatly reduces the fabrics ability to tear when wet. Usual reduction in tearing is 80% - 90% excellent lube for sulfur blacks to reduce scuff marks. Can be used equally well on all types of polyester, nylon, and cellulose dyeing. Very economical to use.



GATAFIX VAS-J

- Acid stable nylon fix with excellent wash fastness and excellent cold water bleed performance. Supplied at neutral pH.
