In the international market, wool and nylon digital printing inks are vacancies in potential market demand. Acid inks occupy an irreplaceable position in the market because they can be applied to nylon fiber fabrics. It is reported that in the global digital printing market, acid ink will grow significantly.
The First Choice for Nylon and Wool Fabrics
The dyeing performance of nylon is similar to that of wool. It has excellent strength, wear resistance, soft feel, light texture and other good wearing properties. It occupies an important position among synthetic fibers. It is comfortable and light to wear and can be used in clothing fabrics such as mountaineering clothing, sportswear, and swimsuits. For the dyeing of nylon fabrics, acid dyes combine with the terminal amine groups of nylon through strong ionic bonds or electrostatic attraction to obtain bright colors with excellent color fastness, making them the first choice for dyeing nylon fabrics.
