Acid Resist Finish – Poly Cotton
The Acid Resist finish is really a water-resistant finish that is not destroyed by the action of acids or other chemicals provided that the garment is cared for in the correct manner.
It does not allow the cloth to be wetted by the acids and is therefore “acid resist”.
The finish performs to the ISO6530 test method where concentrated acids – Hydrochloric, Sulphuric and Nitric are used to test the finish according to the above test method. A strong alkali (caustic soda) is also used to determine the fabric’s resistance to alkalis.
The chemical used in the finish is a Fluorocarbon and is permanent. It should not lose its effect after many washes (the finish can last up to 50 washes) however, the washing procedure must include a thorough rinsing to remove any wetting agents followed by a hot ironing to regenerate the finish effect.
