Innovations in Textiles

Description

With the rapid growth on the digital textile printing industry it is imperative to continually conduct new research. New ink types, fiber technologies, and printing equipment are constantly developed. Quality assurance research must be conducted on various fibers and fabrication to ensure that compatible inks are used in digital textile printing processes for the specified use of the end products. This research examines the laundering process of digitally printed reactive ink fabrics to determine the proper laundering cycle for the best colorfastness results. Benefiting the industry and academia, this research provides advantages and disadvantages of the laundering process for digitally printed reactive inks.
