Notes on Reactive Dye

Reactive dyes are special coloring agents that textile industries use for dyeing fibre, yarn, fabrics, and garments. These dyes are popular in the textile industry because they make colors that fix well and don’t fade quickly. Unlike other dyes that fix on the fabric’s surface, reactive dyes combine with the fabric’s molecules through a chemical […]

List of all the Natural Cellulose Fibres

A fibre is obtained from a plant, animal, or mineral. Commercially important natural fibres are those cellulosic fibres obtained from the seed hairs, stems, and leaves of plants; protein fibres obtained from the hair, fur, or cocoons of animals; and the crystalline mineral asbestos. Vegetable fibres are generally comprised mainly of cellulose: examples include cotton, coir, kapok, jute, flax, ramie, hemp, pina, […]

Why Reactive Dye is So Called?

Definition of Reactive Dye Reactive dyes are a class of colored compounds that chemically bind to fibers like cotton, rayon, or linen to impart color resistance to washing and fading. To apply reactive dyes properly, we need a process with controlled conditions. Usually, they are used in an alkaline bath with sodium carbonate or sodium […]

Mixing, Blending and Bale Management

Mixing Mixing could be thought of combining of fibres together in somewhat haphazard proportion whose physical properties are partially known so that, the resultant mixture has only generally known average physical properties which are not easily reproducible. Blending Blending is based on the measurement of important fibre properties i.e, length, strength, cleanliness, e.t.c. Quantitatively proportioning […]

What is Fibre and Textile Fibre

Fibre is the unit part of any clothing material. There are different types of fibres like natural, Synthetic and Regenerated. These fibres have different physical properties and chemical structures. Cotton, Hemp, Jute, Linen, etc. are natural fibre. Acetate, Nylon, Polyester, Acrylic, etc. are Synthetic fibre. Viscose is a regenerated cellulose fibre. Clothing made from different […]
