Abstract: In this work, the effect of atmospheric pressure plasma treatment on improving the application of pigment dyeing in cotton was investigated. The colour-related properties such as (i) colour yield; (ii) colour levelness; (iii) crocking fastness; and (iv) dry-cleaning fastness of the pigment-dyed cotton fabric were determined and evaluated. Atmospheric pressure plasma under different combinations of operational parameters was used for treating 100% ready-for-dyeing cotton fabric. The atmospheric pressure plasma-treated cotton fabric was dyed with yellow pigment by the pad-dyeing method, and the pigment-dyeing solution concentrations were 1 g/L and 5 g/L. Experimental results revealed that colour yield of the yellow pigment-dyed cotton sample improved. The crocking and dry-cleaning fastness properties also improved. In addition, prediction model equations were developed for 1 g/L and 5 g/L pigment dyeing based on multiple linear regression, and the measured colour yield was close to the predicted colour yield.
