What Is Ball Blast Ball







aesthetic changes on the surface of the dry garment.

In most cases thermocol balls of varying sizes, which are preferably treated with hypochlorite solution & Calcium carbonate powder, are used for blast effects.









hypochlorite can be replaced by any suitable oxidizing or reducing agent to achieve variation in color cut.

Application: Drum washer is filled with 他 of its capacity with thermocol balls. Dilute solution of active substance is poured over it and drum is rotated followed by addition of Calcium carbonate powder which forms a pasty mass on the thermocol ball, once this is done drum is loaded with dry garments and run for 10-30 mins depending on level of bleach effect/color cut required. In case of Ultrafresh-MG only product is used and no calcium carbonate is added.

After achieving the required effect the garment may be given antichlor treatment or simply washed and dried.


Technical Information ULTRAFRESH-MG

[A powdered product used to produce unique bleach finishes] Description: It is powder bleaching composition for fading and other special effect on cellulosic fabric. It is non-aqueous system designed to produce washed out look. Properties: Appearance Chemical nature pH Storage

: : : :

Purple powder Semectite clay & alkali metal salt 7 ±1 Has to be stored in sealed containers to prevent powder from drying out and becoming dusty. It has to be stored in sealed and dark containers in a cool environment, because it decomposes under influence of light, elevated temperatures & oxygen from the air.

Features:  Used for finishes on denim such as French Frost, ice wash, white wash, snow wash and acid wash.  Also used to achieve a ‘worn’ appearance on light weight garments like fleece and T-shirts  Can be used at different dosages to obtain many finishes.  Gives very good ocean wash effect on corduroy fabric  It is non-aqueous method for fading a previously dyed denim fabric. When use suitably it can achieve the following effect: • Cracked look • Ice look • Bright white look • Black sky look Handling recommendations: When working with this product, as such or on the machines, the use of mouth protection is recommended to avoid inhalation of dust. The use of gloves and protective goggles is also recommended. Direct contact with skin or eyes may cause irritation. If this occurs, flush thoroughly with a gentle stream of water for 15 mins. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Mop up small spill or absorb it on inert material. Confine and collect large spill. Disposal of this material, its mixtures, rinsing and spill residues must be in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

:2 : Application: Ball Blast effect: Drum washer is filled with ¾ of its capacity with thermocol balls of varying sizes. Balls are wetted with adding little quantity of water & then UltrafreshMG , 20-30% owg is sprinkled over it and drum is rotated for 5-7 mins so that it forms a pasty mass on the thermocol ball, once this is done drum is loaded with dry garments and run for 10-12 mins depending on level of bleach effect/color cut required. After achieving the required effect the garment may be given antichlor treatment or simply washed and dried. Crackle wash: • Dip or spray garments with 25-40% Finish-COM • Extract at 250 rpm for 3 mins of the garments are dipped • Scrunch garment to desired pattern • Apply heat at press to form ‘cracks’ • Allow to cool for 3 mins – if film present continue, if not apply higher concentration of Finish-COM • Place garments in tumbler • Add 20-40% owg Ultrafresh-MG • Add weight to improve smoothness – golf balls are very effect at 5 or 10:1 ratio of garments to weight • Tumble for 5-10 mins depending upon desired effect • Transfer to washer • Fill • Add 2-3% owg Quench PN & run for 20-30 mins • Add 1% acetic acid & run for 5-10 mins • Check that all potassium permanganate has been reduced; take sample of bath water [100 ml] and add a few grains of ocean magic powder. If the pink color remains, more Quench PN is required. If the solution turns clear, then proceed • Drain • Rinse for 2 mins • Drain • Fill • Drain • Soften as usual

Key points:  Machine capacity 30-60% for a rotary tumbler, depending upon effect.  If Ultrafresh-MG is used in a washing machine where the barrel has perforations, then the perforations must be sealed to prevent loss of powder and inconsistent results. This can be done with for example temporary boards of Teflon or contact paper  Processing time with Ultrafresh-MG should be kept constant from load to load to minimize variations  To aid the process, weights such as balls, plastic tubing, hockey pucks or similar items can be added to the load. Balls are very effective at ratio 5:1 or 10:1 of garments to weight  The removal of brown color and remaining product is essential to prevent discoloration (yellowing). To check that the neutralization is sufficient, take a sample of the wash liquor before draining and sprinkle a few grains of powder on the surface. If the solution remains pink, then the neutralization is insufficient. Add more Quench PN and run for 5 mins more. Check again.
