ALQUAT - CLA Bleach Bath Accelerator (2014-2015)

Alquat CLA Alquat CLA is a bleach bath accelerator designed for catalyzing faster formation of active bleaching species resulting in enhanced productivity and optimizing the quantity of hypo chloride required. Alquat CLA is nitrogen containing surfaceactive agent. Due to its cationic character it also minimizes back staining.


Alquat CLA Properties: Physical appearance


Ionic nature

Weakly cationic


pH of 1% solution : Miscibility


Colouless pale yellow liquid


Miscible in water

Compatibility : Compatible with nonionic, Anionic & cationic Stability



Alquat CLA Features: Ensures over 50% reduction in chlorine bleach concentration & also half the reduction in time to achieve the same bleach effects. The reduction in dosage of Sodium hypochlorite and Processing time results in following benefits.

 Reduced fabric damage  Lower

localized abrasion and streak


 Reduced

quantities of antichlor and peroxide in subsequent steps

 Reduced

quantities of objectionable gases and odour in the local environment

Alquat CLA Benefits:  Substantial reduction in bleach cycle time allowing for improved productivity.  Bleaching process at lower temperatures allowing savings in fuel costs & energy costs.  Vastly reduced effluent quantities “Ecofriendly” & “environmentally safe”.

Alquat CLA Benefits in processing of tencel blends: Tencel is a regenerated cellulosic fibre, advantageously used with cotton to give improved aesthetics and comfort. However tencel is easily damaged while bleaching with Sodium hypochlorite. Alquat BBA reduces the damage to the blended garment due to the reduction in the processing time as well as reduction in the damage due to Sodium hypochlorite solution. It also lowers the excessive fibrillation of tencel, which normally requires a biopolishing operation to be carried out subsequently

Application: • It is a highly active chlorine bleach accelerant, & hence small amounts are sufficient to permit a high percentage reduction in chlorine bleach concentration. • As a starting point, use 1.0-2.0% . Alquat-CLA & cut the amount of chlorine bleach by 50%. Other modifications of the bleach cycle, such as time should be made after the initial evaluations. Add the Alquat-CLA to the bath and agitate to uniformly disperse throughout the load prior to addition of the chlorine bleach. Peroxide neutralization may be required if whiter, brighter shades are desired.

Alquat CLA Sand Blast Effect: Here Alquat CLA in thickened form is applied by brush or sprayed on the garment followed by line drying, subsequent bleaching step results in the sprayed/painted areas being lighter in contrast to the rest of the garment Alquat CLA may be applied in a pattern by a hand brush on all the parts of the garment which need to be high lighted, followed by drying, subsequent conventional bleaching with hypochlorite achieves the desired results. Alquat CLA may be screen-printed followed by drying and bleaching. This allows various different motifs and prints to be achieved on the garment.

Alquat CLA Over View:  50% reduction in chlorine bleach concentration  Reduced fabric damage  Improved productivity  Less load on effluent  Is “ECO FRIENDLY” & ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE”.
