Synthrapol is an industrial strength, neutral detergent used as a prewash, afterwash or wetting agent for paint and dye. It helps prevent backstaining through its unique characteristic of keeping loose dye particles in suspension.
When used as a prewash, Synthrapol removes sizings, oils and waxes from fabric that would likely interfere with or alternately influence the dye process and resulting color.
As an afterwash, it ensures that the fresh color will hold to the fabric.
As a wetting agent, it helps wool and other hard to wet fibers become fully wetted. It also facilitates easier painting on these surfaces and marbling, when added to the paint.
