Wetting agents make solid materials more susceptible to water immersion by reducing surface tension or interfacial tension, allowing the water to expand on, or penetrate, the surface of solid materials. Wetting agents are used before the application of other chemicals to enhance their performance.
A dispersing agent, or dispersant agent, is a surface active, or non-surface active, polymer that is added to suspension. Usually added to maintain the dispersion of indigo or dye molecules in the bath, the agent prevents deposits on the garment.
The usage of Garmon’s dispersing and wetting agents allow numerous advantages in garment treatment, such as:
