In this study, the factors influencing the final colour yield of an ink-jet printed cotton fabric were investigated. The factors included the content of the pretreatment paste (the amounts of sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate and urea) and the steaming time. Four different inks - cyan, magenta, yellow and black - were used in this study and the influences of these factors on the four different colours were studied through experimental design. The results showed that apart from the influence of individual factors, the final colour yield also depended on the interaction effect of the factors. Technol.
