Yellowing of White Color-
Definition and Causes
The yellowing of white fabrics that takes place after periodic exposure to light sources is normally caused by: The use of poor quality optical brighteners with poor light fastness properties, The incorrect PH levels of the fabric,The application of incorrect softeners.
The inter-action of one or a combination of any of the above with the Ultra Violet rays emitted by the sun or any other artificial sources will result in a semi-permanent yellowing of the exposed fabric.
Preventive Suggestions:All white fabrics, regardless of fiber type, must have PH levels of 5 to 6 (on the Acid side).
In most cases, a PH adjustment through rinsing will be sufficient to regain the brightness. In some cases a re-bleach may be required.Flammability Testing Equipment is essential for apparel company
