Printing

Direct Print, Resist Print, and Discharge Print:

There are three methods of pattern dyeing and printing: Direct, Resist, and Discharge Printing.

Direct Printing:
a design is etched into a copper roller. A dye that has been thickened into a past with starch, gelatin, or synthetic polymers is applied to the etched area while the UN-etched surface is kept clean.

The color design is transferred to the cloth under pressure. Direct printing may also involve forcing the past on to the fabric through a screen.

A technique similar to stencil printing except that screen controls how much past is applied to the cloth.

Resist Printing:
a reverse printing method, a dye repelling substance is selectively applied to the cloth, which is then placed in a dye bath. This method is used, for example, to produce white polka dots on a color background.

Discharge Printing:
the whole fabric is dyed. A pattern is then printed on the fabric with a chemical that oxidizes or reduces the dye, creating a white pattern on a colored background.

** Different Types Of Printings

** Factors Affecting Consumption And Costing

• Yarn/Fiber content
• Yarn count and type (carded or combed)

** Consumption For One Dozen Polo Shirt

Formula for fabrics consumption

A) Cpd (body) = Body length X Width X 2 X 12 X GSM/10000000
= 82.75 X 54.52 X 2 X 12 X 180/10000000
= 2.19

B) Cpd (Sleeve) = Length X Width X 2 X 12 X GSM/10000000
= 25.51 X 58.25 X 2 X 12 X 180/10000000
= 0.641

C) Cpd (Neck) = Length X Width X 2 X 12 X GSM/10000000
= 7.25 X 22.5 X 2 X 12 X 220/10000000
= 0.086

Total Cpd = (A+B+C)
= 2.091 + 0.641 + 0.086
= 2.819

Actual Cpd = total CPD + 12% wastage
= 2.819 +12%
= 3.16 Kg/Doz

So the fabrics consumption for a men’s Polo Shirt is in 3.16kgs/Dozen.
