AVCO CATALYST LT-1A , BLEACH LT-2B  is a new system AVCO developed after an extensive work in our LAB to optimize the bleaching properties at 800C.

This new system is based on 2 products : 

  1. AVCO CATALYST LT-1A  
  2. AVCO BLEACH    LT-2B 

 

 Those 2 products are organic and inorganic components which regulates the peroxide decomposition at lower temp. – mainly 800C

 "One-Shot" product that can replace all surfactants, stabilizers, sequestering agents normally used in cotton hot bleaching process.

  1. Lower bleaching temperature means lower energy consumption and shortening of the bleaching time.
  2. The result is lower production cost and improved efficiency.
  3. Very good detergency and emulsifying properties towards dirt, waxes and oils which present in raw cotton knits. The absorbency of the bleached fabrics is excellent.
  4. Less handling and weighing in the dye house and saving of storage space.
  5. Maximum reproducibility.
  6. Softer fabric handle.
  7. Lower tendency towards pilling.

 AVCO-CATALYST LT-1A , BLEACH LT-2B   are   balanced blend of wetting agent, detergent, stabilizer and activator, formulated to offer the textile dye-house a complete "one shot" low temperature bleaching auxiliary, designed for peroxide bleaching at 80°C of cotton and cotton blends with hydrogen peroxide in jets and winch type machines.

 The special activating  AGENT   accelerates and activates the bleaching effect of hydrogen peroxide and shortens the required bleaching time, and thus enables bleaching at low temperature such as 80°c instead of the usual peroxide bleaching temperature which is in the range of 95 – 110 °C.

 Lower bleaching temperature process consumes less energy and saves machine time, which means lower production costs.

 Lower bleaching temperature means also lower fibre damage, less pilling and softer handle.  

The new LOW TEMPERATURE bleaching is offering a pronounced save of energy consumption along with save of machine time (app. 1 hour time save per cycle).

 The result is lowering of direct bleaching costs by app. 20% along with pronounced increase of bleaching machine efficiency by app. 15%.
