Disperse Dyes Acid Dyes Reactive Dyes Direct Dyes Pigment Dyes

Disperse dyes are used to dye polyester for use in many types of textiles including clothing and automotive.

Acid dyes are water soluble anionic dyes that are applied to fibres such as silk, wool, nylon and modified acrylic fibres from neutral to acid dye baths.

Reactive dyes are most commonly used in dyeing of cellulose like cotton or flax, but also wool is dyeable with reactive dyes.

Direct dyes are used on cotton, paper, leather, wool, silk and nylon. They are also used as pH indicators and as biological stains

Pigment dyeing is a process for coloring textiles which uses ground pigments, rather than a true dye.
