StarChem Introduces StarTex Fresh PF

WELLFORD, S.C. — July 18, 2014 — StarChem LLC has introduced StarTex Fresh PF, a technology designed to be applied to fabrics for the control of odors in the home, office, car and work environments. StarTex Fresh PF is also effective in the processing, storage, and consumer use of fabrics and garments. StarTex Fresh PF is not a deodorant that masks odor, but a technology that quickly absorbs and slowly dissipates odor-generating compounds over a period of time. StarTex Fresh PF is a two component system, containing the active odor control agent and a durable binder designed to withstand cleanings and abrasion while maintaining its odor control properties.

Effective for processing odors related to ammonia, sulfur, amines, aldehydes etc.

These items are provided as general information only. They are approximate values and are not considered part of the product specifications.
StarTex Fresh PF may be added directly to the finish or binder mix tank and be applied through traditional pad, spray or foam methods. Curing should take place at a minimum of 250°F for two minutes.
How Much To Use
General starting recommendation is to use 2% StarTex Fresh PF on the weight of the bath for normal finishing operations and 8 grams per square yard in a coating of binder formulation — these levels may be increased depending on the type and level of other ingredients in the bath, type of substrate and ventilation systems employed.
StarTex Fresh PF should be protected from freezing and stored in temperatures from 5 to 35°C. If stored for extended periods outside the recommended storage temperature, please contact a StarChem representative so we can review quality.
