From amongst its many products, Microgenix CATA G is an ultra low yellowing formulation for the finishing of Cellulosic and blended materials. The ingredients of CATA G develop a strong linkage with the fiber surface and assists in minimizing bending length, length bending rigidity and flexural rigidity, generally considered to evaluate the performance of softeners.

CATA G imparts soft handle and greasy surface feel to the fabric. The product can be used solo or in conjunction with other additives such as resins etc. It is also a low viscosity liquid and hence quickly dissolves in bath liquor uniformly.

And for the same purpose the product is formulated with dispersal boosters, penetration accelerators and bonding agent to ensure maximum wet pick up and wash stability. The application of CATA G is comparably a low yellowing product and confers fair amount of luster to the processed materials and can also be used on knitted material.
