Use Pad Batch Dyeing

[1] [6] [28] It is the transfer of dye to cotton, rayon and blended goods through rollers (continuous method), according to reference [2]. As described in references [10] and [30], prepared fabric is impregnated with liquor containing premixed fibre reactive dyestuff and alkali; excess liquid is squeezed out on the mangle.

Goods can be washed in any of several convention ways, depending on equipment available in the mill.
