Colour deepening agent for Cotton

Product Information

Sarabloom-SL is a colour blooming agent specially developed for an enhancing shade of cotton, wool, polyester and their blends. It is especially suitable for black and navy blue dyed fabrics.

Sarabloom-SL imparts neutral to redder tone on the treated fabrics.

Treatment with Sarabloom-SL confers a soft hand to the fabric and thus the addition of conventional softeners can be reduced from the recipe. Sarabloom-SL does not lead to bronzing.

Precautions :

  • Any strong mechanical finish like calendering, pressure decatising etc. which can affect the surface characteristics of the finished fabric may reduce blooming effect.
  • Blooming effect will not be observed for dye fixed fabric.
  • pH of padding solution should be 4.5-5.0. If pH increases to alkaline side, the emulsion becomes unstable resulting in the formation of white specks and ultimately lower colour blooming effect on fabric.
  • Make small volume of pad solution to avoid tailing problem.


Storage : Store in cool, ventilated shed away from heat and direct sunlight. Storage temperature should not exceed 35 deg C.Close lids firmly to avoid contact with air and moisture.

Shelf Life : 8 months from the date of manufacturing, if stored under controlled conditions.
