Fabric and garment finishing : Basic washes in denim fabric

 
By  : Noopur Shalini
 

 

DENIM WASHES ARE OF TWO TYPES:

 

1. Mechanical washes

-  Stone wash

-  Microsanding

 

2. Chemical washes

-  Denim bleaching

-  Enzyme wash

-    Acid wash

 

 

 

CHEMICAL WASHES

 

Denim bleach

 

In this process a strong oxidative bleaching agent such as sodium hypochlorite or KMnO4 is added during the washing with or without stone addition.

Discoloration produced is usually more apparent depending on strength of the bleach liquor quantity, temperature and treatment time.

It is preferable to have strong bleach with short treatment time.

Care should be taken for the bleached goods so that they should be adequately antichlored or after washed with peroxide to minimize yellowing. Materials should be carefully sorted before processing for color uniformity.
