Vinyl Sulphon Liquid Reactive Dye Concentrate

Jacquard has come through again with a better, yet much more economical replacement for Procion H liquid Fiber Reactive dyes (discontinued as ingredients are no longer available). Jacquard's Concentrated Vinyl Sulphon Dyes (a Remazol type dye) are permanent liquid Fiber Reactive dyes for hand painting or printing on any natural fibers. Or they can be used in a hot dye bath. They work even better on wool than Procion H did, so they're great for warp painting, etc. Just leave out the baking soda in the instructions when working on wool. They exhaust better so there's less wash out, and they are even more stable than liquid H was over time. They also have outstanding light and washfastness. They are ideal for the production artist on silk or wool who requires economy as well as deep shades, and who enjoys mixing color.

These dyes are very concentrated (same concentrations as Procion H was) and should be diluted. Since they are way less expensive than Procion H was, they can be quite economical for the production artist! Steam setting of color for 30-45 minutes on silk and wool is required to produce brilliant permanent colors. They can be batched with Soda Ash on cotton and other cellulose fibers (at warm temperatures), and are handy for folks who are sensitive to the Procion MX type powdered dyes and want to work with a liquid. A medium shade is produced by adding one part dye to 10 dilutant (1 oz. to 10 oz.). To dilute dye for painting, add the Concentrated Vinyl Sulphon dye to our print base/painting kit or chemical water mixed from bulk chemicals. Thicken dye if desired with sodium alginate. See more complete directions below.

Warning: Because they are so concentrated, eye contact may cause permanent eye damage. Do not spray; because they are fiber reactive dyes, mist may cause allergic reaction by inhalation, ingestion or skin contact. Breathing vapors may be harmful.

Conforms to ASTM D4236.

I use this on cotton--it's the best pure black almost shiny.

After 5 years using this line I'm switching to another brand. Obviously I have gotten decent results. However I have to agree with other reviews: these colors are not as brilliant as other brands. In the bottle uncutunmixed the golden yellow turns brown relatively quickly. I've never been able to reliably mix a dirt brown or grass green I get purply-brown and pine-green. I'm going to try another line.

I had problems with the red dye in the old procion H label--but this works SO much better! The dyes exhaust a lot better (not as much color run-off after steam-setting) and the Red is a much richer fuller color.

takes some getting used to compared to Procion MX but very convenient without the exposure to powders.

I love these dyes. I have been using them and the previous H dyes for over 17 years when I shibori and always get brilliant colors on silk. Less bright but still beautiful colors on cotton and wool. The steam setting is worth the extra effort. I mix the darkest formulas then add more water when needed for lighter colors. What I love most is that I only have to buy 3 or 4 different basic colors and can use them to mix 100's of other colors hence keeping my inventory low.
