The increased dyeability of cotton fabrics in low temperature media using two different plasma polymerisation methods was investigated in this study, In the first method, fabrics were directly treated in amine plasma (ethylenediamine or triethylenetetramine). In the second method, they were first treated in argon plasma and then immersed in an aqueous amine bath, The treated fabrics were then dyed with a reactive dye (Remazol Black B) and the colour yields and fastness properties of the resulting fabrics measured, The K/S values obtained were significantly improved when compared to the untreated fabric.
