A variety of new synthesized polyurethane acrylate polymers has been used as textile binder in the pigment printing for screen printing of polyester fabrics and for pigment fixation through polymerization process for binders by using thermo fixation as well as radiation curing (UV and microwave) fixation modes. The effects of change in temperature of thermo fixation and the time of curing in both UV and microwave with the concentration of prepared binders in printing paste on the color strength, and prints fastness properties are studied. The newly synthesized polyurethane acrylate binders could be successfully used for pigment printing of polyester fabrics using three fixation modes and, in general, their pints possess color strength value comparable or even higher to those obtained upon using selected commercial binder.
