Serial Number: 3
Name of the Project : Development of lightfast bleached, dyed and finished jute fibrics for manufacturing export quality home textiles
Sponsored by : MoT/JMDC
Abstract : To develop an appropriate chemical treatment method either at core or at finished stage to impart lightfast character in bleached/ bleached and dyed/printed jute.
Highlight :

The progress of work on JTM 08 is around 41% which represents market and literature survey, optimization of bleaching process with special additive like FBA, UV absorber to impart light fastness of 4 above. Optimization of dying process and characterization of physical parameters, such as loss of strength of lightfast bleached jute etc are being carried out.
