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.
