It is economically feasible to use chlorinated solvents to replace water as the transfer vehicle in the dyeing of polyester fibers. The chlorinated solvent system takes less time and can be recovered at a fraction of the heat requirements needed for water; however, other problems associated with the solvent system must be solved before such a system will be accepted by the testile industry.
