1. TEXTILE DYEING
Textile dyeing is two main types: reactive and direct dyeing
- REACTIVE DYEING is carried out at a temperature of 30 to 60° C depending on the material, and the fixing of the colors is done with the appropriate acids and alkali. In our company is used 90% reactive dyeing, it is suitable for dyeing of natural textiles – cotton, flax, semolina, silk and artificial textiles – viscose and polyamide. This dye is the most durable and appropriate for your clothes because it keeps them from deforming in the process (made at a lower temperature), the colors are durable and do not smudges or launches dye on your other clothes after washing.
- THE DIRECT DYEING is carried out at a temperature of about 100° C. The dye is in direct contact with the garment for about 60 to 90 minutes, and the longer the procedure, the more saturated the color of the article. This dye is for mostly woolen clothes. The disadvantage is that after painting the garment launches dye and it is possible to stain the underwear or other clothes, to shrink or deform the garment from the high temperature (felting), etc. Therefore, if our staff recommend to you do not paint your garment – because it will shrink or afterwards launches dye – keep in mind that they want to protect you from a bad result in direct dyeing, so please keep in mind the above.
WHAT WE HAVE TO KNOW BEFORE DYEING YOUR CLOTHES:
- Choose the color carefully – keep in mind that you should always choose a color darker than that of your garment. You cannot dye a red jacket in yellow or orange color. When choosing a color, you should also keep in mind the color spectrum – for example, if you want to dye a yellow vest in blue – the result will be the green color of the garment. Or if you want to dye pink shorts in blue – the result will be a purple color, and so on. Choosing a color should be chosen very carefully, taking into account what defects or trouble you want to conceal in dyeing.
- Clean or wash the garment before dyeing. This will remove the excess fat and dust attached to the article, which would degrade the quality of dyeing and coating. If there is any stain on your garment, it must be removed beforehand so that the paint can be evenly absorbed by the entire surface of the fabric.
- Sew all defects – torn pockets, torn lining, hem, button holes or holes in the fabric. This is necessary because of the strong dyeing reagents these areas of the garment can be opened more, in order to tear or deform the garment. Keep in mind that the process is automatic in the machine and our employees cannot prevent or see what happens to each garment.
- There is no way to cover 100% bleach blemishes (discoloration and bleed more than 30% color), silicone adhesive stain, oil paint or hard resins that are lasting sealed in the garment. There is simply no way to absorb the dye in textiles. In garment dyeing, when threads are polyester, they do not absorb the new one and retain their original color.
- When you get your dyed garment, you should know that it is also washed out with fixed colors by us. You can immediately wear it, just after first washing, then keep in mind that in the last rinse to add about 100-150 ml. Vinegar to remove if there is any residue of dye or simply to fix the new color better. Further processing, rinse or other manipulations are unnecessary on your side.
- If the new color is not saturated or strong enough for you, keep in mind that everything depends on the composition of the fabric. If the sign of the garment is written the consist of 70% cotton and 30% elastane, the grade of intake is 70% of the garment (as is the composition of cotton). In a black garment, which should become black, it means that black has a grayish tint because it cannot cover 100%. Even 10 times this garment is dyeing, since it cannot absorb more than 70% of the fabric, it cannot become more saturated. Also keep in mind that the softer and finer the fabric is weaved, the easier it is for the new color to take on the fabric. For solid and coarse clothes (tarpaulin, raw cotton and hemp), the results are not 100% because of the difficult absorption of the dye in the fabric.
