REINACH, SWITZERLAND: Archroma has extended its Cartasol range by introducing a new, improved bright yellow dye called Cartasol Yellow 6GFC liq, that has no added diethanolamine (DEA) or triethanolamine (TEA or TAN).

Archroma’s new, food-compliant yellow formulation is butyldiglycol free, and will completely replace its existing Cartasol Yellow 6GFN liquid product by the end of this calendar year.

The company’s continuing active dye-reformulation program has led to the latest launch of Cartasol Yellow 6GFC liq. The new dye has been designed to have the same strength, shade and properties as its predecessor, but with the added advantage of being fully compliant with the food contact requirements. In addition, the new grades are REACH-compliant and fulfil the requirements of most major eco-labels.

“We were already able to cover most colour needs for food-contact applications with our existing dyes. Now by developing additional ones to extend our range, we can fully meet our customers’ requirements,” said Simon Boyd, Archroma’s head of global product management, colourants, packaging & paper specialities business.

“Importantly, the bright greenish yellow colour of Cartasol Yellow 6GFC liq. is attractive and adds a vibrant new colour option to those producing bright yellow and green tissue and related packaging, thereby further supporting design creativity,” added Boyd.
