Sandospace R and five multi-functional reactive dyes have been applied to lyocell fibre, by exhaust methods. A comparison has been made of the number of mmoles of each species covalently bonded to the fibre, with cross-linking efficiency (NSF values). None of the dyes studied was able to achieve levels of cross-linking found in non-fibrillating grades of lyocell, unless unrealistically high levels were applied. Sandospace R readily matched the NSF values found in commercially produced non… CONTINUE READING
