Protex Introduces Prote®-Gal EDR Dye Bath Additive

France-based Protex International, a producer of chemical and biochemical specialties for a variety of industries, has developed a dye bath additive for reactive and direct dyeing of 100-percent cotton and polyester/cotton blend fabrics. According to Protex, Prote®-Gal EDR promotes an even dye strike with an on-tone uptake and buildup of dye leaving dyestuff yield unaffected; is suitable for use in dye recipes containing dyes that have different strike rates and affinities for cellulose fibers, especially in difficult dye recipes such as those for bright shades; prevents differential dyeing of abraded cotton fabrics, which is common when high-molecular-weight dyes, such as phtalocyanines, are used; and is recommended when a small shading addition is made to match a target color.
