Basic dye is a stain that is cationic (positively charged) and so will react with material that is anionic (negatively charged). Their color base is not water soluble but can be made so by converting the base into a salt. The basic dyes, while possessing great tinctorial strength and brightness, are not generally light-fast. These are mainly applied to acrylic fibers, but find some use for wool and silk.


We offer a large range of basic dyes, including pure Methylonium Chloride (MTC) (patented process).
