How to select the appropriate scouring penetrant
Release Date:2020-3-5 Source:xiashundong Views:1119

In general, textile fibers are subjected to a scouring treatment before dyeing and finishing to remove natural impurities (such as waxes, pectins, nitrogen compounds, cottonseed shells); and pulp and oils during spinning. Agent to improve the fibers water absorption and softness, and to facilitate the adsorption and diffusion of dyes during printing and dyeing. If the scouring is incomplete and uneven, it will cause uneven dyeing, poor color yield, poor fastness and other problems, which will seriously affect the quality and grade of the product. Additives must also meet environmental requirements. Therefore, it is very important to select a suitable refining penetrant according to the type of fiber and fabric and the process and equipment used.


First, the following is a brief introduction to the refined penetrant evaluation and general and simple detection methods:

1 permeability: 2g / L scouring agent

1.1.a. Do not adjust pH; b. Adjust pH 12.0.

1.2. Test the sedimentation speed by the standard canvas sedimentation method (test solution 500ml).

1.3. Measure at least 3 times and take 2 times to calculate the average.

2 Foaming: (concussion method or aeration method or juice machine method)

2.1. Take 50cc of brewing scouring agent 2g / L, put it into the measuring cylinder with stopper, and shake it up and down 30 times.

2.2. Record: Instant, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2, 3 minutes foam height.

3. Detergency:

3.1. Infusion scouring agent 3g / L.

3.2. Unsizing cloth.

3.3. Bath ratio 1:10. Processing conditions 98 ° C × 30 minutes.

3.4. Regain moisture after drying. Measure hair effect (climbing speed) above O.5h.

* Wool effect: Take a piece of cloth with a length of 10cm and a width of 2.5cm. Draw a line at 1cm, 2cm, 3cm, 5cm. Record the climb time (a fast speed indicates a strong cleaning power).

4. Emulsification:

4.1. Take 109 scouring agent + 3% Na0H 40ml + 10g dimethyl silicone oil.

4.2. Put into a graduated cylinder and shake well, and record: the height of the emulsion layer in real time, 2h, 24h.

5. Alkali resistance: foaming scouring agent 2g / L

5.1. According to the required tablet alkali test: 0g / L, 5g / L, 10g / L, 20g / L ...

5.2. Observe whether oil slick: Record: instant, 2h, 24h (generally need to pass 24h without oil slick).

6. Temperature resistance: scouring agent 2g / L

6.1.a. No base added; b with 2g / L.

6.2. Take 400ml each of the test solution and place it in the test machine at 100 ° C for 60 minutes.

6.3. Observe whether there is oil slick after taking out.


2. According to different fibers and processes and equipment, Shanghai Zexing Company will refine the penetrant, classify according to product characteristics, and make the following recommendations.

Refining penetrant selection series list:
