Permanent Dyeset Concentrate was produced by Jacquard as a fixative for Jacquard Green Label Silk Colors for situations when steam-fixing is not practical.
Green Label Silk Colors are based on a form of reactive dyes so Permanent Dyeset Concentrate can be used on other reactive dyes (eg procion) as a secondary fixative.
Permanent Dyeset Concentrate holds more of the dye (that could be lost in the rinsing stage) onto the fabric for more intense colour.
STEP 1 Green Label Colors or reactive dyes* should be applied as usual. STEP 2 Immerse the fabric into Permanent Dyeset fixative bath as instructed below. STEP 3 Rinse as normal with detergent (Metapex or Synthrapol**) in the final rinse
*In the case of procion mx, salt/urea and soda ash should be still be used in the process. ** Metapex or Synthrapol are particularly good at carrying away any excess dye that has not been fixed onto the fabric and therefore preventing back-staining.
