RUBBING FASTNESS OF TEXTILE PRINTED WITH SCREEN PRINTING TRANSFER TECHNIQUE
Textiles materials can be printed using various direct or transfer techniques. The screen printing transfer technique is process in which the design isfirstly printed onto a flexible, non-textile substrate and later transferred bya separate process onto a textile material. Textile materials printed with this technique are usually subjected to the influence of different environmental elements and treatments during the exploitation, such as rubbing, heat, UV radiation, moisture, washing, etc. This paper presents research of rubbing treatment influence on the color changes of the textile material printed using screen printing transfer technique. Rubbing treatment of the prints was done according to ISO 105-X12 standard. Color changes of the printed textile materials to dry rubbing treatment were characterized by the spectrophotometric measurements.
