Urea | 455g Bag

Urea assists in solubilising fabric dyes as it attracts moisture. This is particularly useful when printing as there is less water available in the system and, therefore, the addition of Urea facilitates the overall dyeing/printing process.

Urea can be used with Manutex Thickener for screen printing, painting or direct dye application.

Urea Info.

Urea is used when applying dye solutions directly to fabric, as in tie dyeing or hand painting.

It slows the drying process; therefore it allows more time for the dye to react with the fibre and yields deeper shades. Urea can be used with Manutex Thickener for screen printing, painting or direct dye application.

Instructions

Add 1 tablespoon/15 g Urea per 8 fl oz/0.24 L solution (¼ cup/57 g per 1 qt/0.95 L of dye solution).
