Cotton Dyeing With OBA (Optical Brightening Agent)

What is white dyeing?

Dyeing is carried out to change the appearance of the grey yarn or fabric. Generally, dyeing is done with the help of dyes and chemical. Most of the time, raw materials become colorful through the application of dyes. But if we want to get white fabric, we need to pass through the wet processing methods. The methods by which we can get white materials are called white dyeing. Generally white dyeing is carried out with the optical brightening agent during scouring and bleaching process.

Add wetting agent, anti foaming agent, sequestering agent and run at 600 C for 10 min

Water solution drain

Add wetting agent, sequestering agent, caustic soda, hydrogen peroxide, optical brightening agent and run at 1100 C for single yarn and 1150 C for double yarn for 40 min


Add peroxide killer and run at 900 C for 10 min

Peroxide check in the package
