  1. Bale Dyeing,
  2. Cross Dyeing,
  3. Random Dyeing,
  4. Beam Dyeing,
  5. Jig Dyeing,
  6. Batik Dyeing,
  7. Chain Dyeing,
  8. Burl or speck Dyeing,
  9. Piece Dyeing.
Dyeing Cost Calculation Formula in Wet Processing:

To find out the dyeing cost in textile wet processing industry, the below formula have to follow:

Dyeing cost per kg,

         D.M+ D.L+ D.E+ OH
= ………………………………………

      Total dyeing production

D.M = Direct materials cost,
D.L = Direct labor cost,
D.E = Direct expense cost,

OH = Overhead cost.

Elements of Dyeing Cost:

The cost elements involved in the textile dyeing process are as follows:

Direct materials cost (D.M) = Dyes and chemicals,
Direct labor cost (D.L) = Operators and helpers for definite job,
Direct expense cost (D.E) = Cost of re-dyeing, re-washing etc.

Overhead cost (OH) = Power, steam, rent, effluent treatment, transport, laboratory etc.

Key Factors of Dyeing Cost in Textile:

There are some key points or factors which are directly affected on textile dyeing cost. Those are presented in the following:

  1. Special dyes and chemicals.
  2. Types of dyeing- reactive, direct, vat, sulfur etc.
  3. Fabric types- delicate, blended, light or heavy fabric etc.
  4. Dyeing processing time.
  5. Effluent treatment cost.
  6. Types of dyeing machine- soft flow, winch dyeing machine etc.
  7. Types of color- medium, light, dark.
  8. Laboratory expenses.
