Printing Auxiliaries

Printing Auxiliaries

Thickeners

LYOPRINT® thickeners are used to hold the printing paste in the screen and control the amount of paste that is transferred to the fabric. They allow the paste to level in blotch printing and prevent flushing or bleeding and let the paste penetrate to the required extent. Huntsman Textile Effects provides both synthetic and natural thickeners.

Binders

LYOPRINT® binders are used in pigment printing to crosslink and bind pigment particles to the fiber and improve fastness properties.

LYOPRINT® PBA

External Cross-linking Agents

LYOPRINT® cross-linking agents are used in pigment printing to improve fastness properties, especially wetfastness and rub-fastness.

Dispersing Agents

LYOPRINT® dispersing agents can eliminate gelling problems associated with poor-quality Carbon Black pigments. They can also be used to prevent problems with high-solids titanium dioxide white pigment pastes.

LYOPRINT® PDN

De-aerating Agents

LYOPRINT® de-aerating agents are used to remove air from print pastes and improve ink penetration in all printing systems.

Printing Softeners

LYOPRINT® softeners are added to pigment print paste to lubricate it in the screen and to soften the fabric to give it a soft handle.

LYOPRINT® PSC

Discharge Agents

LYOPRINT® discharge agents are reducing agents that discharge reactive dyed grounds in pigment printing.

LYOPRINT® DA LIQ

Reduction Inhibitors

LYOPRINT® reduction inhibitors protect dyes against shade changes in printing and stable oxidation in vat dyeing, hence achieving excellent dyeing with good reproducibility.
