Dyeing cotton can reach 100 liters of water/ kilogram of fiber.
Dyeing cotton fibers with reactive dyes requires the process of washing-off of hydrolysed dye. This usually is a lengthy and difficult to achieve process, with heavy consumption of water, energy and time.
Generally, the most part of consumption occurs during the post-washing phase (rinse), necessary for extracting the hydrolysed dye that doesn’t fix to the fiber during the dyeing phase.
Used in celulosic.
With any reactive dye and with conventional machinery.
Doesn’t affect dyeing nor final color.
