Pigment Printing Thickener YX-PTX



YX-PTX is an APEO and formaldehyde free high concentration synthetic thickener for textile pigment printing. Printing pastes prepared with YX-PTX is producing more level and even prints, with higher color yield and brilliancy even on difficult to print fabrics such as single knits made with open-end yarns, and polyester-cotton woven fabrics.
