    The goalUnderstanding elementary dyeing theory as related to different dye/fibre systems. Understanding the scientific principles that underpin dye application to both natural fibres and to synthetic fibres via a number of processing routes. Understanding the major dye classes, their properties and methods of application related to consumer product satisfaction. Distinguishing among the various dyeing techniques and processes of textile coloration in industrial practice. Establishing the solid basis for further knowledge development through team work and multidisciplinary approach to the solving of engineering problems in practice.
    The outcomeEstablishing engineering principles for managing textile dyeing process in industrial practice. Obtaining necessary skills for using laboratory equipment and test methods for evaluating dyeing outcome and quality of dyed textile materials. Knowledge on evaluating dyeing techniques and dyed materials.
    Contents of lecturesThe course provides a thorough knowledge of dyestuff nomenclature, principles of dyeing theory and practice of dyeing technology of textile materials, based on the principle of coloristic classification of dyes. From the point of view of main parameters of dyeing quality (levelness and fastness), the course combines theoretical study with appropriate examples from industrial practice, which are being explained on defined substrates i.e. different textile fibres. It provides detailed study of dyeing equipment from the aspect of its applicability in terms of the substrate and dyeing class used.
    Contents of exercisesPracticals provide opportunity that the students in laboratory apply the knowledge obtained through theoretical lessons. The knowledge provided covers: practice of dyeing different substrates (cotton; wool; polyamide; polyester); influence of dyebath composition (concentration; chemicals additions; presence of textile auxiliaries) and dyeing parameters (time; temperature; dyebath ratio) on dyeing quality (levelness; fastness).
