 Important to equip the operator with gloves, gas mask and gaggles.

 Long time breathing in potassium permanganate spray may cause health complications

Limitation of using Potassium Permanganates in Garments Washing

Various physical and mechanical properties (Hand feel, Weight, EPI, and PPI, Tensile strength, Shrinkage, Seam strength, Count & stiffness) were investigated before and after each treatment according to standard test methods. there are a number of changes in processing time and concentration reveals big difference in various properties between treated and untreated garments. It means that Hand feel, Weight, EPI, and PPI, Tensile strength, Shrinkage, Seam strength, Count & stiffness will be changed after using Potassium Permanganate .The graph show how much garments changed after using PP.
