Abstract

An inkjet printing technology that combines printing and durable press finishing in one process was developed. Both acid and reactive dyes were examined. An alkaline catalyst was not required for reactive printing using this process. Normal pretreatment of the fabrics was also unnecessary. The crosslinking agents evaluated were DMDHEU and BTCA. The fabrics thus processed had satisfactory dye fixation and color-fastness that were the same as, or better than, the color quality from conventional inkjet printing. In addition, printed fabrics had high smoothness appearance grade, indicating high dimensional stability, resiliency, and durable press capability.
