Polypropylene fiber dyed with a 4-nitroacridone dye The dyes display much better lightfastness when dyed selected from the group consisting of on polypropylene fibers than do the commercially avail- (a) a compound having the formula able dyes recommended by the fiber manufacturers,

The detailed procedure that followsillustrates a specific embodiment of this invention.

EXAMPLE A mixture of 3.00 g. of the dye, 1.00 g. of Marasperse N, and 1.00 g. of Cyclopon AF was combined with water 1 and ground with a hand muller to disperse the dye. After h R 1 d f h f H the material was oven dried, it was ground to a powder W erem Se ecte group conslstmg o with mortar and pestle and used to make up the dyebath. and CHHO at leastfme R bemg A convenient weight of polypropylene fiber in the form 09) a compound havmg the formula of cloth was scoured minutes at 70 C. in an aqueous 0 R solution of 1% (based on fiber weight) of an anionic 30 I wetting agent such as Sulframin AB and 0.25% (based R- .R on fiber weight) of sodium carbonate, A dyebath was i made up having about 40 times the Weight of the fiber. The dyebath was simply Water containing 1% (based NE on fiber weight) of an anionic wetting agent such as N01 sulfl'amm AB and 1/2% (based on fiber Weight) of the wherein R is selected from the group consisting of iiged Tlheflfloth vlgastecrlltertedbat 501066 tecrnpferatuge 221x21 H, C1, and Br two of the RS being H,

To remove surface dye, the goods were then p I g e soaped 30 minutes at 70 C. in an aqueous solution of 40 about 2% sodium carbonate (based on fiber weight) and about 1% (based on fiber weight) of a suitable dispersing agent such as Sulframin AB. The goods were then rinsed and dried.

Another set of dyeings was made using a similar pro- I cedure but with 2% dyestuff instead of /a%.
