Rapid Fast (Azoic) Dyes

The Rapid Fast are stabilized Azoic Dyestuffs specially prepared for printing. They are applied to the fiber in one operation. When developed under acid condition bright full shades are obtained which possess very good fastness properties. Due to cross-coupling which may occur between certain Rapid Fasts, proper care should be taken when using mixtures of Rapid Fast as the resultant shade obtained is unpredictable.

Procion Dyes

Procion dyes are “cold water dyes” that are fixed chemically instead of with heat. This unique property sets Procion apart from all other dyes and establishes them as the undisputed king of backyard dyeing, batik, and tie-dye. Because Procion dyes can be used away from the stovetop, they are also the ideal colors for shibori, ice dyeing, tub, and low water immersion dyeing, printing, direct painting, and other “alternative” dye applications.

  • Techniques:
