Thickener - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The thickener was applied at various concentrations (0, 4, 8, or 12 g/l) in the pretreatment bath to determine the effect of cationization on the optimal level of thickener. The concentrations of soda ash and urea in the pre-treatment were 40 and 100 g/l respectively.The fabrics, untreated cotton and cotton cationized with 100 g/l reactant, were printed with the cyan ink at 360 and 720 dpi ...
