Dyes for Polyamide Fibers

  • F. Walker
Part of the Topics in Applied Chemistry book series (TAPP)


The polyamides discussed with regard to their dyeing behavior in this chapter are of two types, the natural and the synthetic. The natural polyamides consist mainly of wool and other animal fibers such as those of the Angora goat (Mohair), the Cashmere goat, and, to a lesser extent, alpaca, llama, vicuna, guanaco, camel hair, and the hair of the Angora rabbit. The man-made fibers consist of a group under the generic name nylon. Although some six or seven nylons have found commercial value, only the two main types will be discussed.
