E-book: Getting Results from Your Coloration Laboratory
Getting Results from Your Coloration Laboratory (CD-ROM + Print)
by James Park and John Shore
Published by the Society of Dyers and Colourists
A well equipped and properly staffed laboratory is a vital factor for the success of any modern coloration operation. Increasing commercial pressures together with the need for efficient and short processes, often in conjunction with automation, has increased the importance of the works laboratory in recent years. Concepts such as 'right-first- time' and 'just-in-time' processing, with the need for quick response to changes in fashion trends, have added to these pressures. Indeed, the laboratory must be the nerve centre of the coloration operation if these objectives are to be achieved.
The authors have spent a lifetime in the textile coloration industry, and have won plaudits for their significant contributions to the technical literature over many years. They offer key insights into this important area. As they point out: 'The virtual disappearance of technical services from suppliers has meant that the wet processing operation must be almost totally self-supporting technically.'
