The technical feasibility of using Aloe vera gel as a new thickener for printing polyester with disperse dyes was examined. Results obtained indicate that the properties of the printed fabric samples (colour strength K/S and over-all fastness properties, handle and sharpness are determined by jel concentration, type and concentration of additive, i.e. (urea, citric acid), as well as the fixation condition using super-heated steam technique. The optimum conditions for printing polyester fibre with disperse dyes using Aloe vera jel as a thickener, were as follow: 30 g/kg disperse dye, 50g/kg urea, 15g/kg citric acid, 500g/kg Aloe vera thickener 50% ,drying at 100°C/3 min followed by steam fixation for 6 min. at 180°C.
