Abstract: Polylactic acid also named polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable fiber synthesized from renewable natural plant sugars. Widely used in biomedical applications, PLA fibers can be dyed with standard polyester dyes and dyeing procedures. Some of the common dyeing methods include high temperature (HT) dyeing, rapidly dyeing in HT, thermofixation, dyeing with carrier, solvent-assisted dyeing and solvent dyeing. Regardless of the dyeing method, the key to achieving better dye uptake is the selection of appropriate dyeing conditions.
