Mercer observed that the treated fabrics shrank, had increased tensile strength, and an increased affinity for dyes. Mercerization is a process that makes cotton take dye better and increases its luster! The cotton is treated with Sodium Hydroxide (Caustic Soda) to swell the fibers and increase the fiber's luster as well as its affinity for dye by increasing the surface area of the fiber. MERCERIZING Mercerizing is the process of treatment of cellulosic material with cold or hot caustic conditions under specific conditions to improve its appearance and physical as well as chemical properties. of mercerized cellulose II. Mercerization gives cotton woven cloth a silky luster, and is the foundation of many improved and beautiful finishes. 2 7 Combined preparatory processes Need for combined proceeses.

In this study, 100% cotton woven fabrics having three different patterns are mercerized by chained mercerizing machine. Mechanism of mercerization and effect of different parameters on mercerization When applied according to the development perfected in England by Horace Arthur Lowe (1869-1930) from Heaton Moor in Lancaster, who in 1889 filed 2 patents, then resumed and developed by the Germans Thomas and Prevost in Krefeld (North Rhine -Westphalia). Physico-chemical properties of bacterial cellulose enable to be used as matrix in producing artificial bone material. Analysis of mercerization process based on the intensity change of deconvoluted resonances of 13C CP/MAS NMR: Cellulose mercerized under cooling and non-cooling conditions. The de-twisting unit removes twist from fabric during feeding.

A typical mercerizing process for tubular knitted fabric as follows: The mercerizing machine has a de-twisting unit, a water trough, a sodium hydroxide liquor trough, swelling unit, four washing units and a neutralizing unit. Mercerization process and apparatus . Mercerization is the process of subjecting a vegetable fiber to the action of a fairly concentrated solution of a strong base so as to produce great swelling with resultant changes in fine structure, dimensions, morphology and mechanical properties. Mercerization gives cotton a high luster^ makes it easier to dye^ and Mercerpro- duces brighter and fuller shades. 2.3 Mercerization process The following procedure conducted the merceriza-tion process: 2 gr mendong fibers were immersed in 100 ml NaOH solution (Merck) with various concentrations of 2.5%, 5%, 7.5%, and 10% for 2 hours at room temperature. :JvwY��eaL���Vf�t)�3z,�)���v�>W�h����_{\ This process … QWNI – 4 gpl.
