Example text

Dyeing takes place in alkaline conditions normally through the addition of sodium carbonate. Common salt or Glauber’s salt is also added, which helps the fabric take up the dye evenly. Variations in the amount of alkali and salt produces lighter or darker colours. Reactive dyes are suitable for dyeing cotton, linen and silk and are often used for printing. These dyes were first marketed by ICI in 1956 as Procion dyes. Pigments Vat pigments Pigments are used for printing fabrics when mixed with the appropriate binder or thickening agent.

It does not absorb moisture well, but is fast to dry. Tencel was more recently developed to be the first environmentally friendly man-made fabric. It is made from sustainable wood plantations and the solvent used to extract it can be recycled, so the Tencel fibre is fully biodegradable. It produces a strong fabric that drapes like silk, with a soft handle.

Nowadays disperse dyes are mainly used for polyester fibres, but are suitable for most synthetic fibres. They are applied at relatively high temperatures so are not suitable for use on fabrics that are mixed with wool as the wool may felt.
