PARASCOUR 298 is used in concentrations of 1-3% based on the weight of the fabric.
A typical scour/dye procedure for cotton wool, or synthetic fabrics is as follows:
– Fill equipment, add PARASCOUR 298, and run at 100-140oF, depending on dyestuff being used.
– Add chemicals such as CARRIER MH, SORBASSIST N (wetter), DEFOAMER 019B, JT-4200 (lubricant), or HERRITON RH (leveler).
– Add dyestuff and follow regular dye procedure depending on type of dyes being used.

PARASCOUR 298 is an excellent detergent. It emulsifies oils and sizing agents and prevents their re-deposition. It is operative at temperatures as low as 80-100oF, but it performs best between 140-180oF.

PARASCOUR 298 is very effective at higher concentrations in the removal of heavy deposits of grease, dirt, and oil spots. Concentrations of 4-8% may be necessary.

PARASCOUR 298 is biodegradable and will not contribute to water pollution.
