The Application of Vinyl Sulphone Dyes for cotton and cellulosics

The combination of the vinyl sulphone reactive group with cellulosic fibres exhibits excellent stability to acid hydrolysis. Removal of any unfixed dye after completing the dyeing cycle is enhanced, since the substantivity of hydrolysed dye is low.

Time/Temperature Graph

Exhaust Dyeing Methods

At A set bath at 30°C with required amount of dyestuff. Circulate goods to ensure even distribution.
At B add common salt 20-80g/l and run 10-15 minutes.
At C add 10-30g/l alkali and raise temperature to 60°C in 3 minutes. Run at 60°C for 30-60 minutes.
At D drop liquor, rinse hot, cold and soap off.
