Dye-Loc is a water-based fixing agent for direct and reactive dyes. It significantly improves both washfastness and crockfastness of dyed cellulosic and protein fabrics and their blends. It actually locks fugitive dye-stuff at the molecular level without affecting the light fastness of the dye. Tests show that after one treatment with Dye-Loc, dye-stuff will not easily migrate at future cleanings. Dye-Loc also provides an anti-static quality to the treated textile.
