Tie-Dye Process

1301540 1 e1692180973257

The traditional name Bandhani reflects to the name of Tie dye. Tie-dye process is easy. The word tie does not mean that the material has to be tied with threads in different patterns to prevent the dyes to reach the tied areas, it can also be folded, crushed & twisted. As the dye or dyes are applied various patterns hinder the penetration of them in the deeper areas creating a dark & light or mixed colour new combinations of colours are formed.

It is a big surprise when the tie dyed material is opened. You believe it or not but whatever pattern is formed you shall like it.

The unique practical for tie-dye is the impregnated method.

What are Reactive Dyes?

36 color

Reactive Dyes are often used for application with cellulose fires as they provide compete colour range and are easily applied, particularly in exhaust dyeing.

Reactive dyes form a chemical compound when they come into contact with a fiber molecule. Reactive dyes are applied wither from a solution with high pH or from neutral solutions that are later alkalized through a separate process. Sometimes different shades are brought out by applying heat to the dyed textile. Originally, Reactive Dyes were applied to cellulosic fabrics. But today other fibers are also dyed using Reactive Dyes.

Approximately 95% of Reactive Dyes are Azo Dyes covering an entire Range of Colours. Blue & Greens are also provided by anthraquinone and Phthalo cyanine structures. After dyeing & fixation, Reactive dyes have completely different toxicological properties because the reactive group is no longer present another high wash fastness often dyed Fabric ensures that no dye is exposed to the skin of the wearer. Consequently no cases of allergic reactions have been reported by consumers wearing textiles dyed with Reactive Dyes.

Reactive Dyes

Cold Pad Batch dyeing method

Reactive dyes are highly preferred for cotton for their excellent fastness properties and easy application. Properties and Easy Application but the Problem in Reactive Dyeing is the low Exhaustion Properties Dyes is the low Exhaustion properties dye to the hydrolysis of Reactive Dyes with water.

Various techniques and methods have been implemented to overcome. These issue in Reactive Dyeing and an effective method to dye the cotton with Reactive dye in the CPB method. This method consumes only a small amount of water & energy. The common a small amount of water & energy. The common salt used to exhaust the reactive dyes is totally eliminated in this method and it offers excellent dye fixation. The main disadvantage of this method is longer batching time.

Tye-Dye Reactive Dyes

Tie Dye

Since 1978 the Tye-Dye reactive dyes replaced the traditional natural colours for faster production fast colours, bright colours, easy pro current easy to use, cheaper, longer life and most important are non-toxic. As per the today’s environmental conditions our reactive dyes are disposable. Using a PH paper test it can be disposed in the drain. A dyebath containing Soda Ash neutralize the Alkaline with vinegar and if containing Acidic acid or vinegar add Soda Ash.

The correct Ecological & Azofree dyes for Tie dyes, Batik, Garment dyeing, Spray dyeing, printing & sun dye all natural fibers of cotton, viscose rayon, silk & Linen.

Using our dyed can be handled by all ages. You can Hand dye in a Tub, Machine or by Application. All you need is the Material to be dyed (only natural fiber’s ) is our dyes, warm water, soda ash, plain salt, calsolene oil, urea a thickener.

Tie Dye Reactive Dyes

To Get perfect & repeatable results follow the % dye of fabric weight. Normally you can use a tablespoon for estimated dye. The formula is one level table spoon = approx. 10 grams.

Special Note-

  1. Concentration of dye per fabric weight differs colour to colour.
  2. The chemicals used also differs colour to colour check our chemical chart as per colour for accurate results.
  3. The time used to react the dye with the particular fabric/yarn differs colour to colour check our timing chart as per colour for accurate results.

Bought the dye – now How to use it.

Reactive dye means reaction process of dyes with the molecules of the natural fibre

Tie-Dye Process –

Tying/Folding/Crushing. Use impregnated process.

Batik Process-

Block resist/brush resist with wax or bees wax. Use impregnated process or climatic process hand.

Garment dyeing process –

Plain dyeing/washed effect/ old changed to new use – machine climatic process & implemented process.

Spray dyeing process –

Resist blocks/resist oils. Use – after impregnated process.

Printing Process –

Motifs by brush or Hand/Screen/Block. Use – impregnated process.

Painting Process –

Hand Painting & coloring. Use-after impregnated process.

Sun Dye Process –

Tie/Bangled/Resist blocks/crushed & sun dried. Use-after impregnated process.

Thanks to our ancestors from INDIA

Forget the past in modern developing but adhere to those techniques innovated by our ancestors old in gold in the proverb and now develop old to platinum using the researched techniques.

Tie Dye means resist dyeing. It means that the tied area if soaked in water resists the dye to enter and make room.

It in just like people in the full lift which is compact does not allow any none passenger inside to take off similarly the water inside to take off . Similarly the water inside the tied area does not allow the dye to infer. The struggle between the dye & the water near at the tied area makes a mix of both resulting in a light tonal effect as a sacrifice to both dye & water. The tied area like if you wear a socks with tight elastic which makes the blood circulation resist in that area to create a mark in same as to resent the one to penetrate in that area.
