Abstract

Sorption characteristics, such as sorption kinetics and isotherms, relation between dye sorption and shade development of poly(trimethylene terephthalate) (PTT) and their comparison with poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), were reported. Results from two different dyeing rate studies, dyeing rate under constant temperature and under changing temperature, were examined to obtain the common rate constants, and to obtain information for the design of dyeing temperature profile and holding time. Rate constants of PTT were compared with that of PET. Sorption isotherms of disperse dyes on PTT were also studied. Both Nernst and Langmuir models were examined. The dye uptake ability of PTT was compared with PET.
