Abstract: The objective of this research was to develop a mathematical expression for the depth of color obtained in polyester fiber in a 50/50 blend with cotton fiber as a function of bath fixed dye content and location of fixed dye in the fabric cross-section. Fixation and reflectance measurements were made on laboratory dyeings in which bath dye content and location of dye in the fabric crass-section were carefully controlled. The central was achieved through the use of varying dye and antimigrant concentrations in the pad baths, with all of the other experimental variables held constant. The experimental methodology which was used resulted in the generation of three primary farms of data: particulate migration, fixation, and reflectance values. Statistical analysis of the data revealed that the contribution to color depth of bath uniformly distributed and migrated fixed dye can be quantified- but not derived- independently.
