Abstract

The use of sublimation thermal transfer printing onto cotton is not widely practiced because of the lack of disperse dyes affinity for cellulose fibres. The studies were performed onto polymer application on cotton fibres in order to achieve the ability to absorption of sublimating dyes and thus the possibility of making printouts onto cotton. The following parameters were evaluated: whiteness degree after impregnation, the relative strength of colours of the obtained printouts, test washing fastness, and dry and wet rubbing fastness.
