DIRECT DYES

Direct dyes have poor wash fastness and you will find the colour bleeding with every wash. Not to mention, the lightfastness is extremely good and that’s why these dyes are also quite popular. The direct dyes are used mostly because of good lightfastness at a reasonable cost.

The textiles where lightfastness is crucial but wash fastness is not important, direct dyes play the role. Fabrics such as curtains and upholstery or the clothing with a dry clean tag can be dyed with direct dyes. Since curtains and blinds are exposed to light all the time, lightfastness is crucial. But, you don’t need to wash them regularly. Looking at the requirements, direct dyes become an ideal choice in such scenarios.

Even the wash fastness of the direct dyes can be improved by treating the fabric or yarn with resins. The fabric is treated with resin after weaving to improve wet fastness and then the clothes will bleed less colour. But, the wash fastness can only be improved a little, it will never be as good as it will be when a reactive dye or VAT dye is used.

What makes the direct dyes so popular is the process is quite easy and fast. The whole cycle takes around 3 hours for package dyeing which is quite good as compared to other dyes. The dye is extremely easy to apply and handle. Also, the dyes and auxiliaries used in the dyeing process are not as much expensive as others and that makes the whole process cost-effective. Even the water usage is quite less in case of direct dyes because not much wash up is required. The level of effluent salt is relatively lower as compared to reactive dyes and that makes the wash after dyeing easier.
