Low temperature bleachingBack
1 Hydrogen Peroxide activator for bleaching at low temperature
Concern over the environmental impact from the industrial processing of cotton and its blends has increased in recent years. Bleaching of cellulosic materials is commonly performed at the boiling point.
To reduce the ecological footprint of the bleaching process, we developed CATAL B70, a bleaching booster that works as low as 70°c in discontinuous processes on natural fibers and their blends.
CATAL B70 drastically reduces energy consumption during the process and delivers an exceptional degree of whiteness and absorbency without strength loss.
Moreover, the green profile of CATAL B70 is acknowledged by the most important environmental certifications.
