ABSTRACT

Reactive colors such as turquoise have definite properties of larger structure results uneven shade problem for fabric with compact structure. In this research the uneven shade problem was resolved by using stripping process in the preparatory stage before dyeing with the help of Hydrose (Na2S2O4) treatment. Various test such as fabric strength, color fastness, color strength have been carried out to study the performance of experimental process. The obtained results shows that, stripping process at preparatory stage reflect significant effect on turquoise dye for even dye shade. As a result uneven shade will not be visualized due to the uniformly absorption of dye molecules into the fiber core. The morphological changes of the fiber in dyed fabric were studied by using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).
