EFFECT OF FABRIC THICKNESS ON PRINTING QUALITY OF POLYESTER FABRIC PRINTED USING NATURAL GUM AND DISPERSE DYE (2023)
Vinita Singh, Sakshi JCR. 2023: 1-10
Textile printing sometimes referred to as "textile makeup," is a versatile and important technique for adding colour and design to textile fibres. The dyes and other auxiliaries are glued with a natural or synthetic thickening agent to confine the colouring materials to the design area on textile material. Plant-based products are preferred over synthetic ones since they are irritant-free. Natural materials are frequently regenerative, non-polluting sources for a sustainable supply. The present study investigated the effect of fabric thickness on the printing quality of polyester fabrics with different constructional parameters. The polyester fabric of different thicknesses was procured and printing on them was done using natural gums along with disperse dyes. Printing was done using fine and bold print. After printing samples were assessed by a panel of judges to assess printing qualities. Based on the qualitative and quantitative analysis, it was found that samples of polyester fabric which had less thickness had better printing quality compared to the polyester fabric having more thickness.
