Notes

To obtain optimum easycare properties, the fabric must be well neutralized and the curing conditions adequate. In view of the many possible influences exerted by the pretreatment, dyeing, printing, finishing and composition of the finishing recipe on the fastness properties, shade, standard of white, strength, "white cracking" after washing, odour and handle, it is advisable to conduct preliminary, internal plant trials. This applies particularly for white- and pastel-coloured and printed goods, where there may be an adverse effect on the degree of whiteness or the shade.
