Peri-dyeing

This laser based dyeing technique allows intricate targeted surface design of textile substrates. In this technique, the dye diffusion and reaction takes place at the point of interaction between the laser and textile material. Photographic quality graphics, and multicoloured surface design effects can be achieved on both natural and synthetic fabrics.

The non-contact laser set up allows precision detail to be achieved on high-texture fabrics. Peri-dying enables digital design innovation and customisation in the manufacture of finished textile goods, with potential sustainability benefits through reduced energy, water and chemical consumption.
