Product overview
CIBAFLUID CD lubricant Suitable for dosing systems. Reduces the friction of fabric against fabric and fabric against machine parts by virtue of its structural viscosity. Assists formation of a protective water layer in high shear zones, creating an aquaplaning effect. No adverse effect on the color yield. Anionic/nonionic. Combination product for batchwise bleaching with peroxide. Controls the formation of active oxygen. No additions to the bleach bath required other than hydrogen peroxide and alkali. Good detergency and emulsifying properties. Anionic/nonionic. Special agent to optimize the washing process, mainly after bleaching or mercerizing. Core neutralization of the cellulose fiber and e xtremely clean fabrics through thorough removal of traces of impurities in the final rinse. High complexing/dispersing power and threshold effect. Phosphorous-free, contains no surfactant; anionic. Stabilized, liquid catalase. The catalase enzyme removes the hydrogen peroxide specifically by splitting it into oxygen and water. Improves shade reproducibility without loss of color yield with dyes that are sensitive to oxidation processes. Outstanding biodegradability. Very broad application spectrum: pH 310 and temperature up to 65C.
