Dyeing Auxiliaries

We manufacture and supply a range of Speciality Chemicals for use in the dyeing process

Afterclearing:

  • Ceralear No 1 - Stabilized reduction bleaching agent for wool, silk, cellulosic and polyamide fibres
  • Ceraclear RCA - Single pack reduction clearing agent specially designed for the removal and reduction of loose disperse dye from polyester fibres.
  • Ceraclear ZR - Powerful reducing agent for stripping many classes of dyestuff from wool and polyamide fibres. Also used as a discharging agent in discharge printing
  • Ceraclear C - Powerful reducing agent for stripping many classes of dyestuff from wool and polyamide fibres. Also used to discharge print on cotton, nylon, silk and wool.

Antifoam:

  • Cerafoam - Highly efficient silicone based defoamer for use in textile wet processes giving a high degree of foam suppression and long lasting defoaming action.
  • Cearfoam SF - Highly efficient silicone free defoamer for all preparation, dyeing and printing processes with excellent stability to high temperature, pH and shearing

Brightening:

  • Cerabrite B - Brightening agent for use in the dyeing or fluorescent whitening of wool and other animal fibres
  • Cerabrite LFB - Buffered brightening agent to eliminate the natural yellow colour of wool and prevent further yellowing of wool during wet processing.
  • Hydroxylamine Sulphate - Brightening agent to prevent the yellowing of wool during dyeing.

Detergent:

  • Cerazin NX - Completely biodegradable non-ionic detergent, free from alkyl phenol ethoxylates, with excellent wetting, scouring and emulsifying properties.
  • Cerazin SS-ECO - Detergent and scouring agent with non-chlorinated solvent characteristics, has excellent wetting, scouring and emulsifying properties
  • Cerawet CWA - Detergent and wetting agent exhibiting excellent stability to alkaline conditions employed on cotton and synthetic fibres

Deaerating and Defoaming:

  • Ceraflow DWA - Highly biodegradable penetration accelerant with excellent wetting, de-aerating and antifoaming properties.

Dispersing:

  • Cerasperse XD - Polymeric dispersant and protective colloid for improving the quality and reproducibility of virtually every textile wet process.
  • Cerasperse DAM - Highly efficient dispersant for use in dyeing cellulosic fibres, polyester and fibres containing polyester.
  • Cerasperse PBM - Single package auxiliary for polyester dyeing incorporating pH control, dispersant and sequestrant.
  • Ceraplex Z-AP - Versatile sequestering agent with high dispersing properties for use in a wide rangeof textile wet processes.

Fixing:

  • Cerafix ECO - Formaldehyde-free fixing agent for improving the wet fastness of direct and reactive dyes on cellulosic fibres.
  • Cerafix FD - Fixing agent for improving the wet fastness of direct and reactive dyes on cellulosic fibres.

Levelling:

  • Ceregal LMA - Highly efficient levelling agent for dyeing wool and polyamide fibres with acid, chrome and pre-metallised dyes.
  • Ceraflow APA - Highly biodegradable penetration accelerant with excellent wetting, de-aerating and antifoaming properties.

Lubricants:

  • Ceralube ACA - Lubricant to prevent creasing, wrinkling, chaffing and other frictional problemsduring wet processing. Emulsifier for oils, waxes and fats removed from fabrics.
  • Ceralube P - Lubricant to prevent creasing, wrinkling, chaffing and other frictional problems during wet processing.

Reserving:

  • Ceratex RAL - Reserving agent for dyeing wool/nylon blends with acid levelling dyes.
  • Cerayex PA - Reserving agent for achieving solid shades when dyeing wool / polyamide blends with milling and 1:2 premetallised dyes.  

Reducing & bleaching:

  • Cerathox - Powerful reducing and bleaching agent for the reductive clearing of dyeings, bleaching of wool,stripping of faulty dyeings and cleaning of machinery.
  • Cerogen W - Non-volatile phosphate free peroxide activator for the bleaching of wool under mildly acidic conditions, low COD with high biodegradability for critical environmental uses.
  • Ceracell SWA - Single pack auxiliary for the hydrogen peroxide bleaching of cellulosic fibres.
