Efficient, Brighter Peroxide Bleaching of Wool/cotton Blends Using TAED

P.A. Duffield, A.J. Mathews and N.A. Turner


Investigations on hydrogen peroxide bleaching blends of wool and cotton showed that whiteness levels were increased by the addition of tetra acetyl ethylene diamine (TAED). The enhancement was produced in batchwise and pad-batch processes, without adverse effects on tensile properties. Bleaching in an unbuffered bath with an alkaline stabiliser gave the best whiteness.
