Members of AATCC-GCUF chapter Ms. Nimra Amin, Ms. Maria Qasim  along with research group students Mr Muhammad Akmal and Mr Muhammad kaleem   visited  5th colour chem Expo  at Expo Centre Lahore on June 15, 2019. Mr Shahid  Adeel faculty advisor/Lecturer Chemistry Govt. College University Faisalabad  made this tour to   show his research group the world of colours other than lab  activities. The traders, researchers and consumers around the globe  showed their interest at this colour chem expo and    exhibited their products. Mostly the  companies from People Republic of China   showed their interest at big scale.  The faculty advisor met a lot of dyes and pigments companies and asked for collaboration   showing their new  products  to our labs  and  shared their lab activities   with them.   A trading comapny Paragon Dyes and Chemicals Owner Mr Shahid  Qadeer and his son Mr Abdullah  has  shwon their interest to our techniques of dyeing and application and  offered  cooperation in providing dyestuffs and other  facilities to our lab. Such types of expo are very useful for students and researchers to see that what the industrial people are doing on research and development part, and other than dyes, which type of textile research is on the way for sustainability of  global community to meet environmental standards.

A recent visit to Sadaqat limited   was made with students under guidance of Mr Shahid Adeel  Faculty Advisor. Technical Director of the unit, Engr. Mr Muhammad Asim  welcomed the student in his chamber. In discussion a cooperation between Eco-friendly Textile Lab Applied Chemistry Department,  Gvot. College University Faisalabad  and Sadaqat Limited was discussed, where the facilities of physical testing of fabrics such as tensile testing, tear testing, pilling, abrasion , crease recovery etc will be provided to research group of Eco-friendly textile lab. In future an industrial Lab scale dyeing methology will be employed through a joint  project on  natural and synthetic dyeing using natural and synthetic fabric via application of  modren tool  such as  radiation induced processing. Students also visited the dyeing, printing and fabric processing units of the industry  and briefed by   Technical Director.  These types of visits are necessary for  student to learn more apart from academic lab scale  in field of textiles, fashion  , design   at industrial scale to see the challenges  , how the industry is overcoming though cost, time, energy and labour effective methods

The students of AATCC-GCUF Chapter  under supervision of Mr Shahid Adeel Faculty advisor and Ms. Nimra Amin Lab incharge Eco-frindly Textile Lab. Deptt of Applied Chemistry   has  visited  Noor Fatima Fabrics Faisalabad Pakistan.  Quality Control Manager Mr Zafar Iqbal along with Mr Naseer Ahmad Technical Manager, welcomed the students in  his unit The students were given briefing by Mr  Naseer Ahmad Technical Manager Processing .   From Greige fabric, desizing, scouring , bleaching and mercerization, every step was explained  in detail . Both continuous and exhaust methods were running in the industry and students were  given a short brief lecture on the importance of steps involved  and mechanism for fabric processing to make it ready for dyeing and printing. In the dyeing section  dyeing of cotton was  also viewed where exhaust, and continuous dyeing process using vat dyes was going on .   In Printing section, Students also observed printing of fabric through rotary printing and  batch printing machines.  In design area, the designing of prints , flowers and images onto fabrics also cached the attention of students. At the end Stitching, folding and packing units were visit, where the ready printed and dyed fabrics were  packed for sale. In quality control Lab, the students were given briefing on colorfastness to rubbing, light, washing, perspiration, dry cleaning fastness, color and tone matching, data color tools etc. Student s took a great interest in the  process and questioned about every step  as in the lab they were also doing the same job at lab scale level. After visiting the textile processing, the  manager took the  whole group towards  waste water treatment plant, where  the resource person briefed about the  method of waste treatment  and how they used  recycled water   into useful; purpose.  Noor Fatima Fabrics always has  made a great research collaboration with our chapter lab in research, using new methods and by technical sharing, improved their methods of dyeing   and such types of visits also  encourages new students to move towards the  fields of dyes and colors. And the purpose of such visits is to share the knowledge of lab scale work  for comparison with  industrial scale work and problem solving tasks in roder to make textile processing cost, time as well as labor effective

Faculty advisor/Lecturer Chemistry Mr Shahid Adeel along with Dr Fazal-ur-Rehman Assistant Professor of Applied Chemistry and students Mr Muhammad Abdullah , Ms Saba Naz and Ms. Nimra Amin visited Harris Dyes and Chemicals Faisalabad Pakistan. The owner of the unit Mr Muhammad Abbas welcomed the students and gave detailed view of his industrial projects. He shared his experience of dyes, chemicals and pigments and showed various steps of pigment formulation from diazotization , coupling, drying and emulsification to finished product. Faculty advisor discussed the utlization of  pigments at lab scale  and its application on cellulosic fabric under the influence of microwave and ultrasonic radiation, where Mr Muhammad Abbas agreed to give his expertise as well as facilities for printed fabrics characterization.




In 2017, the members of AATCC GCUF Chapter has worked  for academics as well as other professional activities. Faculty advisor Mr Shahid  Adeel Lecturer in Chemistry/ PhD Scholar Applied Chemistry visited Noor Fatima Fabrics along with Ms. Saba Naz, Nimra Amin, Mr Muhammad Abdullah, Ms.Memoona Zafar and Ms. Zubda Khalid. Lab Manager Mr Zafar Iqbal welcomed the new students.  The purpose of tour   in textile industry is to educate the young students   on all textile processing steps from fabric pre-treatment to dyeing and finishing, who are taking textiles and colour chemistry as their research subject. In such series, the new members  who has joined the research group of AATCC GCUF Chaper, eco-friendly textile lab visited Noor Fatima Fabrics Faisalabad Pakistan on 21-12-2017. The students  viewed very keenly every processing steps in industry   for fabrics pre-treatment i-e singing, desizing, bleaching, mercerization and packing process. Then they viewed   exhaust, continuous and IR dyeing steps. In printing section, the students viewed manual, digital and rotary printing process  and learnt about every step of printing to finishing. At the end they visited quality control and quality assurance lab , where the lab incharge Mr Naseer  briefed  about  pilling, tensile, tear, fabric weight, GSM Cutting, light, washing, rubbing, perspiration, dry cleaning as well as colour assessment tests.  The faculty  advisor Mr Shahid Adeel discussed about the newly won project on Utilization of microwave and ultrasonic assisted biopolishing in textile processing , which will be jointly run by  Noor Fatima Fabrics R&D Lab and Applied Chemistry Deprtment Govt. College University Faisalabad. Earlier the project  grnated by UNESCO/IUPAC through  its scheme of Phosphoagro  in green chemistry  for young scientists has also been run through coordination of this industry.
