Performance of Dyeing and Printing of Polyester / Viscose Yarns Blends for Clothing use

Hashim ali, Elfadil mahmoud

Abstract


This study highlights the effects of the dyeing and printing processes on the tensile
strength of blended suiting fabrics (65% polyester : 35% viscose) as compared to grey blended
fabrics. The obtained results showed negative effects of dying and printing applications on the
strength of the produced fabrics. Also, there were positive effects of dying and printing applications
on the elasticity of produced fabrics. The strength of the printed fabric along the warp direction was
found to be greater than that of the dyed. As well the strength of the dyed fabric along the weft
direction was found to be greater than that of the printed. It was found that the elongation of the
printed fabric along the warp direction was greater than that of the dyed
