Introduction

Dyeing is the fixing of a dye to a substrate, and normally intends to give an even distribution. A dye is a colorant that is dispersed in its application medium before being absorbed, adsorbed, reacted with, or deposited on, a substrate. They are distinct from pigments because they are soluble in water and possess substantivity (attractiveness) for their substrate; pigments lack both of these features.
