Articles of Nikhil Yogesh Upadhye which are published on Textile Learner during internship period.
Title 1: Various Fastness Methods Given to the Dyed Material
Summary: Fastness of a color is one of the essential parameter which is considered for a textile dyed material. It is the resistance of fabric form colour fading during various conditions like washing, rubbing, perspiration, light and many more. By means of various methods we can determine the fastness properties of a textile material. Evaluation of fastness becomes very important in today’s industry due to competitive nature of business and customer satisfaction. Some of the methods to evaluate the fastness properties discussed in this article are washing fastness, rubbing fastness, perspiration fastness, sublimation fastness and light fastness. These methods give us an idea about how a dyed fabric will behave in its lifetime when exposed to certain conditions.
Title 2: Environmentally Friendly Dyes for Fabrics
Summary: The dyeing of textile material it carries out with the help of azoic colors and other synthetic dyes. In this dyes certain groups are present so that poisonous and causes cancer. To prevent the health hazardous we should eliminate this dyes and use ecofriendly dyes. Ecofriendly dyes are the dyes which are derived from nature. There are 3 types of classes in natural dyes.
Vegetable dyes, Animal dyes and mineral dyes. These natural dyes are explained in this article.
Title 3: Synthetic Dyes Used in Textile Industry
Summary: Synthetic dyes are prepared by chemical processing they are organic chemicals the first synthetic dye of prepared by woulfe and runge they prepare the dye from picric acid but they do not made it at high production because the raw material is costly then in 1865 Mr.William. Perkin started manufacturing of synthetic dye and called it mauveine the dyes are attractive and color are psychological sensation. The synthetic dyes are of two type soluble and insoluble. Water soluble dyes are soluble in water and application is easy as compared to insoluble dyes eg. direct dye, reactive dye, acid dye, basic dye and metal complex dye are some examples of water soluble dyes and in insoluble dyes there are vat dye, sulphur dye, disperse dye, ingrain dye, and azoic colour are included.
Title 4: Advances in Textiles Finishing and Applications
Summary: Finishing is one of the value addition process for a textile material which has been conventionally carried on for decades. Various advancements are always in consideration when it comes to finishing due to the reasons such as cost reduction, improved functionality and eco-friendly approaches. Implementation of the Ideas on industrial scale becomes a major hurdle and only the promising ideas are actually implemented considering various factors. This article includes such advancements in finishing technologies such as microencapsulation, nanotechnology, clay finishing and composite technology, and UV finishing and plasma technology with the important information regarding these finishing advancements.
Title 5: Metal Complex Dyes: Properties, Classification, Uses, Advantages and Disadvantages
Summary: Metal complex dyes are the derivatives of acid dyes in which the dye form a co-ordinate bond with a transition metal like chromium, copper, cobalt, nickel etc. Due to lengthening the dye structure which promotes the fastness properties good especially for chromium. These dyes are mostly suitable for protein fibers and polyamide fibers. Depending on the valencies of the metal to which the acid dye molecules were attached they are classified as 1:1complex, 1:2complex and further more. Unlike acid dyes, metal complex do not require any acidic condition for dyeing, they can be applied in neutral condition which forms bonds like metallic, H-bond. On the application point of view dyes are applied on high class dress material, hosiery, ladies wear.
Title 6: Different Types of Textile Protein Fibers with Properties and Uses
Summary: Polyamide fibers contribute wide range of application in textile and textile dependent industries. Mostly used fibers are wool, silk, camel fiber and so on which are specially used in the area where they are abundantly available. Source oriented fibers derived from plant seeds, animal hair and buds of insects. These are staple length fiber rather than some exceptions like silk, casein and zein etc. Protein fibers greatly shows there high chemical resistance, resistance to static charge generation .They shows wide variety of applications in insulating garments, sweaters, intimate garments as well as replacement of synthetic fibers in blend.
Title 7: Types, Properties and Application of Vegetable Fibers
Summary: Textile fibers are classified in various categories such as natural, synthetic and natural modified and more. From which Vegetable fiber are a major part which includes fibers like cotton, jute, hemp, flax, abaca, and sisal are some examples. For eco-friendly approaches Vegetable fibers can be a good option compared to synthetic fibers due to their biodegradable nature. Vegetable fibers are consist of cellulose and lignin as the main components. Vegetable fibers can be classified on the basis of the source from which they are obtained. This article consist of introduction of some major vegetables fibers along with their properties and applications.
Title 8: Synthetic Fibers: Classification, Properties and Applications
Summary: Textile fibers are classified in various categories such as natural, synthetic and natural modified and more. . From which Synthetic Fibers are a major part which includes fibers likepolyester, nylon, polypropylene, acetate, triacetate. These are in synthetic polymers and natural polymers and the inorganic polymers carbon, glass, are explained in this article. The development of synthetic fibers is the outcome of significant study to improve the qualities of naturally occurring animal and vegetable fibers. These synthetic fibers are made by extruding a synthetic polymeric material through a spinneret into air or water. These fiber-forming polymers are often derived from petrochemicals. As a result, these fibers are known as synthetic fibers.
Title 9: Antimicrobial and Blood Repellent Finish on Surgical Gown
Summary: Antimicrobial and blood repellent finish are given to the hospital fabrics like surgical gowns, bedcovers, pillow covers. By combination of antimicrobial and blood repellent finish to avoid the growing of micro-organisms and repel blood drops. In this article we described various processes are given to the surgical gown. For antimicrobial finish as a neem oil as emulsion it is miscible in the water and computable in other ingredients present in recipe and blood repellent finish has a polydimethylene siloxane based water repellent finish is used. In this article we have made surgical gown. This process is ecofriendly.
Title 10: Special Finishes to Garment
Summary: In this article we have given the info. About chemical finishes, biological finishes, protective finishes, mechanical finishes, thermo-mechanical finishes. Due to up growing market product value addition and aesthetics garments is directly relationship to the customers.
