Vat dyes are one of the most popular dyes to be used by the manufacturing industry.

These dyes are less prone to react with your skin, which makes them suitable for use. At Cosmonaut Chemicals, we offer you these vat dyes for cotton and yarn usage along with other feasible materials.

Our quality-oriented and cautious manufacturing process enables us to maintain the standards, especially regarding the hygienic conditions. You can prominently use these dyes for cellulosic fibers and similar components. The process of using Vat dyes is a bit complex and also it varies from the type of fabric you use.

We have a collection of Vat dyes, which includes Indigo & other anthraquinone derivatives, which offers excellent features for your cellulosic fibers. A simple guide to the procedure of dye processing is given below:

  1. The very first step is to apply the dye in a soluble solution. This will reduce it in a leuco form to aptly infuse with the fiber.
  2. The next step is to oxidize it in the fiber, which will take it back to its actual insoluble form. This can be done by exposing the fabric in the open air.

These Vat dyes are excellent for light exposure and work perfectly well with washing. We offer a range of exclusive colors, which will help you add a variety of shades in your clothing.

Vat dyes were introduced in medieval Europe and the name was given to them following the usage of Vat pigments for fermentation in indigo plants. Some of the amazing features of Vat dyes include washing aids, exposure to light, color fastnesses, chlorine, and perspiration. As in the case of indigo, we suggest you go for several dips in the light dye, rather than a single dip in a stronger dye solution.

Vat Dyes For Cotton

Following the excellent colorfastness, Vat dyes are considered appropriate for the use of cellulosic fiber like cotton. Despite, a relatively difficult process, Vat dyes for cotton can help you retain the color on your fabric for a longer period.

If you are willing to use our vat dyes for cotton fabric, then do consider mercerized cotton, as it has a greater dyeing rate. Here you go with the process you must consider while using vat dyes for cotton.

  1. The vatting process, which converts vat pigments into soluble Leucos.
  2. Using the Leucos solution for diffusing the dye on the cotton fiber.
  3. Washing process to extract more alkali & other reducing agents.
  4. Exposure to light for oxidizing the soluble dye and converting it into its insoluble pigmentary form in the fiber.
  5. The last step includes soaping, which will isolate the molecules to transform into a crystalline form.
