Leveling Agents Market: Overview

Leveling agents are used in the textile industry to impart proper shades to fabrics during the process of dyeing. They control the speed of dyeing and make the dye shade on the fabric uniform. Leveling agents are grouped under surfactants and they are available in anionic, cationic, and non-ionic (or amphoteric) forms. Leveling agents help slowdown the rate of uptake of dye by textile fibers. They are also used as retarding agents. Leveling agents are chemically similar to products such as soaps, synthetic detergents, and wetting agents. Solubility of leveling agents decreases with increase in temperature. Leveling agents reduce the surface tension of materials and improve the flow rate of dyes. Leveling agents eliminate defects such as shrinkage cavity and pinholes. A good leveling agent offers advantages such as high wetting permeability, superior adhesion, and long shelf life. Leveling agents do not interact with the fiber and thus, they have no direct role in accelerating the dyeing process.
