Uttar Pradesh Textile Technology Institute (UPTTI) Formerly Known as Goverment Central Textile Institute (GCTI)

Textile Chemistry

Textile Chemistry is a highly specialized field which does significant value addition to textile materials offering aesthetics and functionality. It involves bleaching, dyeing, printing, finishing and allied wet treatments given to textiles. The Textile Chemistry department in UPTTI is very well equipped with Lab scale machines for carrying out various chemical treatments. The machines include winch, jigger, padding mangle, water baths, mini soft flow machine, lab steamers, InfraRed Dyeing machines, sonicator, coating machine, drying and curing machine, lab ovens etc. Other than this the department has all testing equipment for wet processing like launderometer, crockmeter, perspirometer, matching cabinet, sublimation fastness tester, xenon arc weatherometer and computer colour matching(CCM) system . Both B Tech and M Tech courses are offered in Textile Chemistry with a very good scope for placement of students in leading industries.
