Metapex 38 Liquid

Metapex 38 liquid (also known as Synthrapol) is a very concentrated and efficient liquid detergent used for cleaning fabrics, yarns and tops before dyeing or printing as well as a soaping agent after printing or dyeing processes.

Before dyeing or printing

Metapex 38 is extremely efficient in removing general soiling as well as fibre processing aids such as oils, starches, waxes, greases, lanolin and animal fats from a wide range of fabrics yarns and carded fibre tops.

A simple treatment with Metapex 38 liquid in water at 60°C emulsifies and removes most fibre contaminants.

After dyeing or printing

It helps prevent cross staining of surplus dye onto adjacent fibre (particularly white).

A warm rinse after the printing or dyeing operation followed by a treatment with Metapex 38 in water at 60°c will remove unfixed dye and keep it emulsified to prevent cross staining.

Metapex 38 Liquid comes with certain safety warnings regarding its use (shown below).  Please read the Safety Data Sheets very carefully before using.  If you follow the instructions in the SDS, it is very safe to use.
