1. Recipe of acid dyes printing

LH-317H 10%

Water or other chemicals  90% Total 100%’

Note: Dissolve LH-317H into cold water slowly and keep fast stirring for at least 40mins to prevent agglomeration occurring 。 Keep the paste standing for a whole night to make maximum puffing. Hot water(around 70℃) can accelerate the puffing。After fully puffing, take 50-80% paste to make color paste. Add organic acid such as tartaric acid or citric acid to adjust pH to around 5.0(no need to adjust pH when used in reactive printing). According to the experience, use 200 mesh sieve to filter the paste before using.

2. Process flow: Paste Preparation—Rotary or flat screen printing-Drying-Steaming or baking (102-105℃, pressure 0.09-0.1MPa, 30-50 min)-Washing

Note: Detailed process should be adjusted according to preliminary tries.

Operating and safety instructions:

1. Suggest weighing and diluting separately when preparing the paste, then add respectively and stir fully.

2. Strongly recommend using soft water in dilution, if soft water is not available, the stability needs to be tested before making the paste.
