Journal of Applied Polymer Science (Impact Factor: 1.77). 04/2008; 108(1):342 - 350. DOI: 10.1002/app.27667


An alkaline dyeing of polyester with an alkali-stable disperse dye, Dianix® Scarlet AD-RG, was developed using sodium edetate as an alkaline buffering agent. The results obtained indicate the suitability of using sodium edetate for alkaline dyeing of polyester when compared with the control alkaline dyeing using Dianix AD system. Selected mono and bifunctional reactive dyes were used in combination with the alkali-stable disperse dye for dyeing of polyester/cotton blend. Different dyeing methods for cotton and polyester/cotton blend fabrics using sodium edetate were evaluated in comparison with their respective control alkaline dyeing methods. The results of using sodium edetate in one-bath two-stage and two-bath dyeing of polyester/cotton blend were comparable with that of the control dyeing method. Particularly, no change in the leveling and fastness properties was evaluated for all samples irrespective of the dyeing method. © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci, 2008

    ABSTRACT: This research aimed to investigate the possibility of enhancement of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) dyeability using nanotechnology. Different kinds of disperse, acidic, and chromic dyes were used for dyeing of produced PET/silver nanocomposite fine multifilament yarns produced at the take up speeds of 3000 m min−1 and their prepared fabrics. Dyeability improved by using acidic dyes. However, the more promotion effect was achieved by chromic dyes. No effect on absorption of disperse dyes revealed that no physical effect can be considered for dye absorption. The electrostatic interaction between silver and acidic dye molecules and forming the coordinative bonds with chromic dye molecules on nanocomposite yarns and fabrics were concluded and thoroughly discussed. Applying chromic dye with the more potential of creating coordinative bonds intensified the improvement of dyeability. Optimized silver ratio for the dyeability enhancement was affected by the mechanisms of dye absorptions discussed and proven by investigating dye concentrations in the effluent baths after the dyeing processes. It has been found that the steric hindrance is the key factor for absorption of chromic dyes; however, it is different in the case of acidic dyes, well discussed according to the dye absorptions mechanisms. The results can be also considered as evidence to prove forming the coordinative bonds with chromic dye molecules. This has also been confirmed by appearing a bathochromic shift in the absorption peaks by increasing dyeability using chromic dye. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci, 2012

    ABSTRACT: Polyphenylene sulphide is considered to be a high‐performance thermoplastic material and has been used in many areas over the past few decades. But the application of polyphenylene sulphide fabric used for protective clothing is limited because of difficulties in its dyeing and printing. In this work, carrier dyeing of polyphenylene sulphide fabric with disperse dye is discussed, and the effect of the structure of the carrier, dyeing temperature, dyeing time, usage of carrier and usage of dye on colour strength of the dyed sample and the percentage of dye exhaustion were investigated. In addition, the glass transition temperature, crystalline structure and orientation degree of treated polyphenylene sulphide fibre with benzyl benzoate were measured by differential scanning calorimetry, X‐ray diffraction analysis and velocity‐oriented tester, respectively. The results indicated that benzyl benzoate could increase the percentages of dye exhaustion and colour strength values, while at the same time reduce the glass transition temperature and orientation degree of the treated polyphenylene sulphide fibre. Thus, it would be beneficial to the diffusion of the dye molecules into the amorphous region of the fibre. Furthermore, the decrease of tensile strength and limiting oxygen index of the dyed polyphenylene sulphide sample was very little, and the colour fastness and levelness of the dyed polyphenylene sulphide samples were also satisfactory.

    ABSTRACT: This research paper describes the generation of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET)/organoclay nanocomposite filaments by melt-spinning method and investigation of their physical and dyeing properties. Two montmorillonite types of clay were modified using an intercalating agent synthesized and PET/organoclay (85/15 wt/wt) master batches were prepared using a corotating intermeshing twin screw extruder. Afterward, nanocomposite filaments containing different amounts of organoclay (0.5–5 wt%) were produced and dyed with two disperse dyes at atmospheric and high temperature dyeing conditions. Increased clay concentration led to reduced mechanical properties. Nonetheless, PET/organoclay nanocomposite filaments showed enhanced dyeability. POLYM. ENG.
