– Alkaline condition is required for dyeing.

– Sulphur dyeing is one of the most popular for black, brown and blue shade production.

– Sulphur dyes are not more costly process.

– electrolyte is used for exhaust dyes.

– After treatment is required for shade development.

– oxidation treatment is required for shade development in case of Sulphur dyeing.
