UREA

UREA (CODE 2015)

* UREA IS WIDELY USED WHEN DYEING PROCION OR ACID DYES IN SMALL QUANTITIES OF WATER OR WHEN PRINTING OR PAINTING WITH PROCION OR ACID DYES.

* THE EFFECT OF THE UREA IS TO INCREASE THE SOLUBILITY OF THE DYES IN WATER AND THEREBY ENHANCE THE BRIGHTNESS AND INTENSITY OF THE DYES USED.

* AN ADDITIONAL PROPERTY OF UREA IS THAT IT RETAINS MOISTURE EVEN WHEN DRIED AND THIS BOOSTS THE COLOUR YEILD OF THE DYE DURING THE FIXING STAGE.

* UREA IS NOT NORMALLY USED WHEN DYEING IN LARGE QUANTITIES OF WATER.

* RELEVANT LITERATURE: COLOURATION OF COTTON BOOKLET
  COLOURATION OF SILK BOOKLET
  COLOURATION OF WOOL BOOKLET
  PR21, PR22, PR23, PR24, PR25.
