Hydro Extracting


Technical information on this recipe:

  • Hostapur WCTH is a mild detergent. I is used here not for cleaning purpose but used as a wetting agent to increase the wettability of the garments for the next subsequent processes.

  • Acetic Acid is used to keep the PH = 6 because the Enzyme used (Denimex CP 199) is a neutral enzyme and works best at PH = 6.

  • Hot wash is given to remove all the impurities produced at the abrade step precisely¬† and the subsequent Normal washes ensures better removal and prepare the garments well for the next processes.

  • At Softening M:L ratio is kept low than the other steps to ensure the best amount of penetration of the Softener and Silicon.

  • Tubingal 1112 is Non- Ionic Softener and Resil Ultra 196 is silicon. Softener is used to make the garments soft and Silicon is used to make the garments slippery.
