Direct Dyes 2. Reactive Dyes 3. Pigment Dyes 4. Sulphur Dyes

Tint Denim Garments Without Changing the Tone of Indigo: Tinting is achieved by application of the direct/reactive dyes. In case of direct dyes, the second application would be that of dye-fixing agent for an adequate fastness. In case of reactives, the fixing chemical goes along with the dyestuff. After the application, the treated garment is dried in the air or in a tumble drier for adequate fastness. If tinting were done by immersion method, the tint would be all over. However, if a localized area is the target, a spray method is used. In either case the tinting, as the term signifies, is done very lightly to achieve a particular cast, either overall or localized. If indigo does not change tone would look like a print with a sharp boundary. When tone changes fad gradient, the effect looks more aesthetically appealing and is considered desirable. The tone-change should be gradual and not abruptive.

Stone enzyme wash. This type of process is done after different types of washing before softening.. In case over dyeing/Tinting with reactive dyes. Bleach wash take 60 kg garment for Tinting & over dyeing... 2. After drying the garment.. If direct dye is used then color fixing treatment should be done at the end of dying process. Tinting and over dyeing can be highlighted by the following way: 1.. . Enzyme wash. new color effect is produced in the garments.. Tinting & over dyeing is done with Direct dyes or Reactive dyes. Due to tinting and over dyeing. 6... Orange etc. in the light of three effects to be imparted on the same garment. Acid wash. After airdrying for about 10-15 minutes. tinting & over dyeing is done.Brown. peroxide bleaching after biopolishing being optional.. 3. There have been short cuts. However.Tinting With White Discharge Effect on Denim Garments: The standard route to blasting/discharging/tinting is quite elaborate. it obviously remains a spray method. If tinting is done on blasted/discharged areas. color fastness is good hence no after treatment is required to fix the reactive dyes.. In case of white discharge tinting the route would start with desizing-biopolishing on gray garment. Stone wash. For tinting by dyeing method. In case of spray tinting the garment will have to be dried first. Water at L : R = 1: 7. a neutralization step consisting of provide-acetic acid is given which is followed by hot and cold rinses. 1. Tinting by Direct Dye: First Step: After different wet processing i. it follows the dyeing route.. 5. Run the Machine. As a result. After drying the garment.. Stone wash. if the tinting is overall.e. whereas for overall tinting. which may be right/wrong/ingenious. 420 Liter 2. dyeing the method could be followed wet-on-wet. Stone enzyme wash.. a potassium permanganate spray is given to areas where white discharge is aimed at. 4. Normally after Acid wash. tint-spray is given followed by air/machine drying and finishing. The process starts on gray garment being hand blasted followed by desizing and biopolishing. the biopolished garment can straight away go for tinting wet-on-wet followed by finishing and drying. the white/base area colored with required dye yellow. Finally the finishing and drying would complete the process. Enzyme wash etc. Sand Blasting.
