Global Sulfur Black Dyes Market: Overview
Sulfur black dyes are high molecular weight polymeric compounds that are produced by the reaction of sulfur or sulfides with phenols and amines. They are commonly used in the dyeing industry owing to their cost effectiveness. Cotton-based textile companies are the key customers of sulfur black dyes. Various colorants that contain sulfur are available in the market; however, only those dyes that are soluble in water after reacting with sodium sulfides in alkaline conditions are considered actual sulfur black dyes. In alkaline conditions, sulfur black dye gets converted into leuco forms which is the soluble form and they show affinity to fibers. The commonly used reduced agents for the dyeing include sodium sulfhydrate, sodium polysulfide, glucose etc. Common salt when used with sulfur dyes acts as a catalyst. This facilitates the absorption process. Ease of application is the key benefit of the application of sulfur black dyes. These dyes can be used in cotton, nylon, and synthetics. Sulfur black dyes are highly complex. They consist of polysulfide and chromospheres side chains. The low water solubility is the basis of good wash –fastness of the dyed fabrics.
