Abstract

The effects of quenching air temperature, quenching air speed and winding speed in the melt spinning process of poly(ethylene terephthalate) fibres with a titre of 147 dtex and 96 filaments on dye uptake were investigated. The ranges used for quenching air temperature, quenching air speed and winding speed were 17-27 degrees C, 0.3-0.7 m/s and 2600-3800 m/min, respectively. Specimens were dyed and their colour strengths (K/S values) were measured using a spectrophotometer. The results were statistically analysed.
