How fluorescent whitening agents can be used in textiles to prevent yellowing and solutions

September 26, 2019

The fluorescent whitening agent is mainly due to the fact that the whitening agent contains a conjugated double bond system and has good planarity. This special molecular structure can absorb ultraviolet rays in sunlight (wavelength of 300-400 nm) under sunlight. The blue-violet light (wavelength is 420-500 nm), the blue-violet light is mixed with the yellow light on the fiber or the fabric to become white light, so that the fiber or fabric is significantly whitened.

Fluorescent whitening agents often appear yellowish during the printing and dyeing process, mainly due to the following reasons:

1. excessive use too much.

2.the whitening of fluorescent whitening agent is only optical brightening complementary color, and can not replace chemical bleaching, so before processing fluorescent whitening, it is necessary to pre-process the processed varieties, or use the pre-treatment whitening one-bath processing. Fabric.

3. When the bleached fabric is improperly stored, when there is gas such as acid or chlorine in the place where it is stored, the yellowing of the fabric and the spots of the fabric will be expanded into dots, surfaced and permeated to the upper and lower layers of the fabric.

4.the water quality is not pure, high hardness or contains heavy metal ions, affecting the whitening effect.
