Application Properties

Binder PA-F is suitable as binder for pigment printing pastes used on cellulosic and synthetic fabrics and blends, e.g. on polyester/cellulosic fabrics.

Binder PA-F can be applied in different pigment systems; the first two are most widely used :

  • Systems with a synthetic thickener
  • System with a synthetic thickener and small amount of white spirit
  • Emulsions based on white spirit


  • Guideline recipe printing

Binder PA-F is being added to the water after adding the antifoam. The amount of Binder PA-F depends on the amount of pigments and the desired fastness. The calculation shown below can be used as a guideline recipe.

            Printing paste


            Stock paste                                                      x   g     x = 14 * z + 200

            Cut paste                                                          y   g     y = 1000 – x – z

            Pigment                                                            z   g     max 50 g/kg

                                                                              1000   g


  • Print
  • Dry
  • Cure with hot air during 5 min at 150oC, 90s at 170oC or 60 s at  180oC

  • Guideline recipe dyeing

The amount of binder depends on the quality of the goods, the depth of shade, the desired handle and the fastness properties required. Generally speaking the following relationships between pigment Binder PA-F are suitable :

Up to               5    g/l pigment             50    g/l            BINDER PA-F

Up to             10    g/l pigment             70    g/l            BINDER PA-F

Up to             20    g/l pigment           100    g/l            BINDER PA-F

Over              20    g/l pigment 150 – 200    g/l            BINDER PA-F

BINDER PA-F                         30 to 200    g/l


  • Pad dyeing at room temperature
  • Dry at 100 – 120oC, preferably with infra-red dryer
  • Cure (depending on the material) 5 min at 140oC, 2 min at 170oC or 1 min at 185-200oC

  • Wash out article process

A method to achieve different fabric fashion effects.

The following processing stages are recommended :

  • Padding liquor (a)
  • Drying at 120oC
  • Washing out on machine
  • Drying at 120oC
  • Padding BINDER PA-F (b)
  • Drying
  • Curing with hot air during 5 min at 150oC, 90 s at 170oC or 60 s at 180oC

Recipe of the pad liquor (a) :

BINDER PA-F                                           10 – 40  g/l     

Recipe of the fixing bath (b) :

BINDER PA-F                                       100 – 150  g/l
