SANODAL RED B3LW
Sanodal Red B3LW
Sanodal® Red B3LW is a homogeneous, water-soluble dye which is distinguished by high fastness to
light, weather and heat.
Sanodal® Red B3LW is suitable for interior and exterior architectural purposes.
1. Dye-specific data
Commercial form: fine granules
Chemical character: azo dye, heavy metal complex
Bulking volume: 600 g/l
Solubility in water: 150 g/l at 20°C
Storage stability: virtually unlimited, store containers closed tightly
Ecotoxicological data: see Safety Data Sheet.
2. Application conditions
temperature Dyeing Dyeing time
Standard coating thickness (12 µm) 0.05 - 5 g/l 25 - 60°C 10 - 20 min
Sanodal coating thickness (25 µm) 4 - 5 g/l 55 - 60°C 30 - 40 min
pH: 5.5 ± 0,5
Buffer: The dyebaths are preferably buffered with
8 g/l sodium acetate trihydrate
+ 0,4 ml/l acetic acid, pH 5.6
Water quality: preferably deionized
Sealing: preferably with Anodal® ASL (one or two stage).
3. Preparation of the dyebath
When preparing the dyebath care must be taken that the dye is well dissolved.
The dye can be dissolved in deionized water (80 – 90°C) in a separate container (5 parts water
to 1 part dye). This stock solution is then stirred into the dyebath.
4. Lightfastness of the dyeings
Sanodal® Red B3LW is distinguished by outstanding lightfastness.
Lightfastness of Sanodal® dyeings: rating > 9 (ISO 2135).
5. Special remarks
- Unsealed dyeing can be stripped with diluted nitric acid (30 %).
The best results concerning stripping will be achieved with nitrical acid 10 % + potassium
permanganate 5 %.
- The dyebaths are sensitive to sulphate and aluminium; anodized objects should therefore be
rinsed thoroughly before dyeing.
- Prevention of mould formation
An addition of an antimicrobial product can inhibit mould formation for a long time.
We recommend the addition of Nipacide CI 15 (See Technical Information) 25 – 50 mg/l.
6. Disposal of the dyebaths
Spent dyebaths must be disposed of; e.g. with Anodal® WT-1 Liquid. The precipitation method
is described in detail in the Technical Information bulletin for Anodal® WT-1 Liquid.
The table below shows the additions required for precipitating Sanodal® Red B3LW.
