Study on the Dyeing Behavior of Wool Fiber Treated with Nano-SiO2/Ag Antibacterial Agent
Wool fiber was firstly pretreated by nano-SiO2/Ag antibacterial agent, and then dyed with an acid dyes at low temperature by ultrasonic dyeing. Many factors had an important influence on the dye ability and the antibacterial behavior during the dyeing process of antibacterial wool fiber. The experimental results indicate that the dye-takeup rates of antibacterial wool fiber were enhanced with the increase of the concentration of nano-SiO2/Ag, the dyeing temperature, the dyeing time and the ultrasonic frequency (less than 60Hz). However, the antibacterial ratios of wool fiber were declined in the impact of these factors other than the concentration of antibacterial agent.
