Carpet Dye Chemicals

A pH greater than 6 may cause blotches. Fiber Prep is designed to reduce the pH of the face fibers, open
the fibers for dyeing and result in a more even dye job. The chemical is mixed 16 ounces per gallon of hot
water (120 degrees minimum) and sprayed on the wet, clean carpet at the rate of 200 to 300 square feet per gallon
prior to dyeing. Cut pile carpet is sprayed at 200-300 square feet per gallon and level loop at 300-400 square
fee per gallon.
pH STABILIZER (1 gal. - $26.95) This chemical is designed to maintain the pH of the dye bath.

bath needs 20 ounces of pH Stabilizer.) For wool carpets, add pH Stabilizer at the rate of 8 ounces
per gallon of dye bath. (A 10 gallon dye bath needs 80 ounces of pH Stabilizer.)
PENETRANT (1 gal. - $27.95) Penetrant is you wetter or carrier. The use of the chemical is dependent
upon the thickness or face weight of the fibers. Level loop carpets require as little as 1 or 2 ounces per gallon.
Apartment grade carpets require 2 or 3 ounces per gallon. FHA carpet require 4 ounces per gallon. The
thicker the carpet, the more Penetrant you would have to use in your dye bath. All new dyers should

words, first you crawl, then you walk, then you run!!! Add Penetrant to hot dye bath.
