Abstract: The dyeability and strength properties of cotton fabric resin finished using Finish KVSI (a DMDHEU based cross linker with built-in-catalyst) in presence of polyethylene glycol 600 (PEG 600) have been studied. The treated samples were dyed with three different vinylsulphone reactive dyes. The dyeing was evaluated by K/S values and fastness ratings while the strength properties were observed in terms of tensile and tear strengths. It has been observed that the dyeability of the crosslinked (resinfinished) fabric substantially increases in presence of PEG 600. The best results are obtained at the optimum resin conc. of 100 gpl, PEG 600 conc. of 140 gpl, curing temperature of 160°C and curing period of 3 min.
