Eco-printing of cotton fabric with arecanut slurry using Asteracantha longifolia (Kokilaksha) seed gum

Abstract:
The present study was undertaken to investigate the possibility to using natural gum extracted from kokilaksha seed gum for screen printing on cotton fabric. The Printing of fabric requires a thickening agent, which is used to make the varying thickness of the printing material. The print quality was assessed by visual analysis and by colourfastness test. Eco-printed cotton samples without mordant and with FeSO4 mordant using 0.5 per cent kokilaksha gum concentration exhibited higher depth of colour, evenness of print, sharpness of print and overall appearance compared to other concentrations (0.1 – 0.4%). With FeSO4 mordant printed sample exhibited good to very good (3/4) colour fastness properties compared to without mordant printed samples. The experimental outcome exhibited that 0.5 per cent kokilaksha seed gum can be successfully used for textile printing on cotton fabrics as natural thickener/gum.
