Why Sodium sulphate is preferred in textile rather than sodium chloride or other replacement possible

Why Sodium sulphate is preferred in textile rather than sodium chloride or other replacement possible


Sodium sulphate plays an important role in reactive dyeing by improving the affinity of the dyestuff towards the fiber, acceleration of the dyestuff’s association and lowering its solubility. The presence of gas particle within the common salt might cause corrosion of the instrumentation. Hence, sulfate is usually most popular over common salt. Sodium sulfate is used
