Jacquard Chemicals for Fabric Dyeing

These supplies are specially formulated to obtain the best results with Jacquard Procion MX Fiber Reactive Dyes.

Sodium Alginate — A derivative of seaweed, Sodium Alginate is the best thickener for use with Jacquard Procion MX Fiber Reactive Dyes. Used to control spreading when painting or screen printing, it can be safely applied to cotton or other cellulose fibers.

Urea — Best used for direct dye applications such as tie dyeing and hand painting, Urea slows the drying process, thus yielding deeper shades by allowing more time for the dye to react with the fiber. It is often used in combination with Sodium Alginate.

Soda Ash — Soda Ash is a mild alkali dye fixer necessary for activating and setting Jacquard Procion MX Fiber Reactive Dyes. It can be used as a pre-soak before dyeing, mixed directly with dye for immersion dyeing, or added to the dyebath in the washing machine. It can also be used with Synthrapol to remove sizings, oils, and waxes when prewashing.

Synthrapol — Synthrapol is an industrial strength, neutral detergent created especially for fabric dyeing. Used as a prewash or afterwash, it helps prevent backstaining by keeping loose dye particles in suspension. It also works well as a wetting agent for wool and other hard-to-wet fibers. For marbling, it can be added directly to colors to facilitate spreading.
