|Abstract:||Effect of treatment with zinc (2.0% owm), ferrous sulphate (2.0% owm), zinc + hydrose (1.0% + 1.0% owm) and ferrous sulphate + hydrose (1.0% + 1.0% owm) reducing agents on dyeing properties of cotton fabric dyed with vat dye has been studied and the results are compared with those of the treatment with conventional hydrose (2.0% owm) in terms of reduction potential, depth of shade, and SEM analysis. The appreciable results are observed for the combination ferrous sulphate + hydrose as reducing agent, showing 99.17% colour strength with uniform dyeing and good reduction potential.|
