Chemicals for Denim

Denim and jeans finishing is at the very crucial point today. Chemicals play an important role to its optimization.

 

zaitexfashion developed a series of chemicals suitable to be applied in the whole denim finishing treatment process.

 

Here you can find a list of such chemical auxiliaries, ordered by category of application.

ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS

ENZYMES

  • ZETALASE HT
    Amylase suitable for enzymatic desizing, either for cold (storage) desizing and for high-temperature (boiling or steaming) desizing.
  • ZETALASE 2100
    Concentrated form of ZETALASE HT. Ideal application: 45-50°C
  • ZETALASE NPD
    Powder formula containing a new “neutral” cellulase preparation capable of operating across a wide range of pH and temperatures. Used in an enzymatic finishing process in order to obtain a stonewashed effect.
  • ZETALASE NT
    Concentrated form of ZETALASE NPD.
  • ZETALASE PLUS
    Cellulase for the bio-polish treatment of cellulosic articles. For its special formulation it may be used in neutral medium, therefore even in pre- and after-dyeing treatments; no need for acidic buffering systems.
  • ZETALASE MPA
    Acid cellulase for the bio-polish treatment of cellulosic articles. Improves touch and gives shiny articles, too.

DISPERSING AGENTS

  • ZETASPERSE BK2
    Dispersing and anti-redeposition agent suitable for the re-wash of indigo-dyed garments. It is also suitable for other washing operations as desizing, enzymatic treatments and stone wash.
  • ZETASPERSE BK2 CONC
    Concentrated form of ZETASPERSE BK2.
  • ZETASPERSE GFP
    Emulsifying – dispersing-sequestering agent in the scouring and dyeing of garments in cellulosic fiber.
  • ZETASPERSE IDG
    Fixing agent, especially fit for indigo-dyed garments. Improves the washing fastness and the resistance to stone washing, prevents weft and pockets staining. Formaldehyde-free.
  • ZETASPERSE PP
    Permanganate catalyst.
  • ZETASPERSE PMG
    Stable reducing agent particularly indicated for neutralizing permanganate.

SOFTENING AGENTS

  • ZETASIL TR 200%
    Non-reactive, silicone macro-emulsion. Confers to the fabric softness and a slippery-silky hand which resists even after several washings.
  • ZETASIL PRT 200%
    Elastomeric finishing (silicone micro-emulsion) fit for all fibers. Allows high-quality finishings with wet and dry washfastness.
  • ZETASIL REX
    Hydrophilic and antistatic silicone softener. High-substantivity liquid, also fits for ready garments. Extremely soft and sliding hand.
  • ZETASIL AK 200%
    Softener specific for cellulosic fibers and their blends. It gives the material a soft and voluminous hand. It causes a low foam formation.
  • ZETASOFT HPS
    High-quality softener which confers soft, swollen, slippery and elastic hand; suitable for any textile material, of natural and man-made fibers.

GLYOXALIC RESINS

  • ZETAREACT AC3
    Low-formaldehyde glyoxalic resin with catalyst for 3D effects.
  • ZETAREACT WFC
    Formaldehyde-free glyoxalic resin for 3D effects, contains catalyst. Used for anticrease finishings and for the dimensional stabilization of fabrics of cellulosic and animal fibers mixed with synthetic fibers as polyamide, polyester and polyacrylonitrile.
  • ZETAREACT CF90
    Low-formaldehyde glyoxalic resin with catalyst for 3D effects.

ACRYLIC RESINS

  • ZETAFLEX A180
    Acrylic self cross-linking finishing with soft hand and average plasticity. It is suitable as a binding agent for pigments and increases abrasion resistance and anti-pilling effect.
  • ZETAFLEX CB
    Fixing agent for pigment dyeing and cationizing agent for “old effect” dyeing.
  • ZETAFLEX RGD
    Acrylic self-crosslinking finishing with hard hand.

POLIURETHANE RESINS

  • ZETAFLEX FD
    Polyurethane resin for special finishings on garments like fade dyeing.
  • ZETAFLEX GT
    Polyurethane resin ideal to obtain contrast effects with pigments on garments.
