Procion MX Dye Info.
Procion MX dyes are “cold water dyes” that do not require heat and instead fix chemically to the fibres you are working with. This unique property sets Procion MX apart from all other dyes and establishes them as the undisputed king of backyard dyeing, batik and tie dye.
As Procion MX dyes can be used away from the oven top, they are also perfect for Shibori, ice dyeing, tub and low water immersion dyeing, printing, direct painting and other “alternative” dye applications.
As a fibre reactive dye, Procion MX forms a strong covalent bond with cellulose fibres, making it one of the most permanent and washfast of all dyestuffs. Mix the concentrated dye powder with warm tap water to create the most vibrant of all colours for cotton, linen and other plant-based fabrics.
Procion MX dyes are typically used with a soda ash fixative, which can be added directly to the dye bath or used to pre-treat the fabric for example when tie dyeing.
Ideal for use with the following cellulose fibres:
Cotton, linen, canvas hemp, jute, ramie, sisal, paper, rayon and more.
