Title: Dye and Fibre
Issue Date: Feb-2004
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Dye-Natural products in general and natural dyes in particular are heading towards a period of renaissance in the area of dyeing. Researchers at Punjab Agricultural University,Ludhiana extracted dye from Peach, Prunus persica Batsch. (Hindi — Aaru) leaves and find out the optimum conditions for dyeing of cotton using combination of mordants.   During experiment, dry peach leaves were taken and ground to powder form. Pure cotton in the form of yarn was used after scouring it with a detergent. The mordants used for dyeing were alum, chrome, copper sulphate and ferrous sulphate.

Fibre-Researchers are always in the search of new cheaper and sustainable source of fibres that can replace or compete with fibres like cotton, Jute, flax, ramie, polyolefin, polyesters, polyamides and polyacrylics, etc. in terms of economic viability and eco-friendly properties. In recent past agro-based waste products have been utilized as natural sources to get natural fibres suitable for agro-tech protective clothing. Betel nut fruits are covered with a shell and the shell of each betel nut fruit produce nearly 2.50 to 2.75 g of fibres. It is estimated that approximately 1,300,000 Mt/year fibre may be available in India only.
