Sherisoft ESSHERISOFT ES is a very good antistatic-softener for finishing of fabrics and knitwear, made of cotton, wool, polyester, polyacryl and blends. Formulated mainly for improvement of articles from high twist yarns or rough fabrics. Especially suitable for:
- Final avivage of fabrics and knitwear from wool and its blends with synthetic fibres;
- Softening of articles from rough cotton fabrics;
- Softening of cotton blankets;
- Softening of articles from polyamide silk, including socks;
- Softening of linen, linen/viscose, linen/cotton.
SHERISOFT ES improves sewability. Preserves the dimensions of the softened textile.
SHERISOFT ES does not change the intensity of the colors and does not cause yellowing.
Mixture of condensation products of fatty acids, imidazoline salts, non-ionc surfactants and silicones.
|Solubility||Dissolves easily in water at temperature of 25-30 оС. Opalescence solution with slight acid reaction|
|Compatibility||With cationic and non-ionic surfactants|
|- to рН||Stable in the range of рН 4 - 7|
|- to hard water (according to DIN 53905)||Clear conditional stability|
SHELF LIFE AND STORAGE CONDITIONS:
At normal weather conditions – 1 year. Avoid freezing.
Sherisoft ES has significant affinity to fibres. It is exhausted relatively quickly, as a result of which the concentrations in the used baths constantly decrease. With periodic processes and multiple use of bath, the bath concentration should be corrected after each charge. With continuous processes, fresh solution should be added in quantity, consistent with the type of material and equipment.
In very diluted baths the textile is processed for 10 min at temperature of 25-40 oС; in dyeing machines - 10-20 min at temperature of 25-40 oС; with foulard – the procedure is standard.
The dosage depends on the type of the material, bath modulus, equipment and desired effect.
The table below contains some examples for the use of SHERISOFT ES:
(fibres, fabrics, knitwear, yarns)
М 1:1 g/l
М 1:10, М 1:20
|Cotton||20 - 40||1,5 - 2 g/l||1,5 - 2 g/l|
|Viscose/ polyester||15 - 30||-||1,5 - 2 g/l|
|Polyacryl nitrile||-||1,5 - 2% of material’s weight||1,5% of material’s weight|
|Polyacryl nitrile/viscose||-||-||2 g/l|
|Viscose - staple, silk||10 - 15||-||-|
|Wool, polyester fibres and blends||20 – 40||1,5 - 2,0% of material’s weight||-|
|Natural silk||20 – 40||-||-|
For carding and grinding of cotton textile and knitwear from polyacryl fibres should be used the maximum concentrations in the table.
These instructions are informative. We recommend being adapted to the specific conditions.
Preparing of working solutions:
The necessary quantity of SHERISOFT ES is diluted with constant agitation up to the desired concentration (with water 25 - 40 oС).
If alkaline water is used for preparing the basic solution, pH should be preliminary adjusted to slightly acid reaction by adding of 1 g/l 30% acetic acid.
