What is "Reactive Dye" - Definition & Explanation

A type of dye that completely saturates the fabric for a long lasting color.
A dye that, under suitable conditions, is capable of reacting chemically with a substrate to form a covalent dye-substrate linkage.
Dyes which react chemically with the fibre. Used predominantly in the dyeing of cotton. Reactive dye effluent is highly coloured due to poor fabric take-up and is notoriously difficult to decolourise.
