REINACH, SWITZERLAND: Archroma said that it is presenting some of its most innovative technologies, under the motto: “colours enhanced, performance enhanced, sustainability enhanced”.

True to its long-term commitment to sustainability and innovation, Archroma will present solutions that combine performance, cost optimisation and responsible textile production.

Colors enhanced

Drawing on its extensive formulation and technical know-how in dyestuff and pigments, some of its latest innovations are:

Optisul C dyes: Optisul C dyes for casual wear enable manufacturers to expand their colour horizons with a new range of six dyes especially designed to produce colours in continuous dyeing processes, as well as on coating and printing.

Advanced Denim technology – When employing Archroma’s Advanced Denim technology, based on Denim-Ox and Pad/Sizing-Ox dyeing processes, users can reduce water consumption and wastewater by up to 92 percent, eliminate up to 63 percent of the usual cotton waste, and save up to 30 percent in energy costs compared to traditional Indigo processes.

Metal-free acid dyes: Archroma has introduced a wide range of Nylosan S and Lanasyn F metal-free dyes aimed at meeting the wet and light fastness levels typically needed for the creation of bright and beautiful colors on polyamide and wool, without compromising on ecological requirements. The Nylosan S dyes exhibit excellent build properties on polyamide, polyamide microfiber, polyamide/elastomeric blends, polyamide/cotton blends and on wool.

Performance enhanced

By offering a constant flow of eco-advanced and innovative new process and functional chemicals, Archroma provides solutions that combine performance, safety and low impact on resources.

‘Zero add-ons’ formaldehyde solution for finishing: Fixapret Resin WFF is a novel, zero add-on formaldehyde finishing system for no-iron performance. Its anti-wrinkle finish shows good performance and benefits compared to other such offerings, including strong, flexible fibre bonding, abrasion resistance, durable wearing and whiteness. With Fixapret Resin WFF, consumers can enjoy end-products that look good, while saving on precious resources and being gentler on the skin.

SmartRepel Hydro: SmartRepel Hydro supports the increasing adoption of eco-advanced materials and production processes by textile producers and brand owners. This new range is Archroma’s nature-friendlier protection that keeps cotton, polyester and polyamide textiles dry. The unique technology offers exceptional, durable water repellency and is not based on fluorine. SmartRepel Hydro produces a soft hand feel and outstanding breathability – the perfect long-lasting, high-performance finish for weatherproof garments.

EarthColors: This new range of dyes is created from agricultural waste: almond shells, saw palmetto, rosemary leaves, etc. They can be used to provide rich red, brown and green colours to denim and casualwear.

Sustainability enhanced

For all of us, inner beauty matters just as much as outer beauty. Brand owners and retailers around the world are taking action to evaluate the environmental impact of textile treatment, dyeing and finishing processes in response to consumer concerns.

Archroma’s engagement in favour of a more sustainable textile industry is deeply rooted in everything it does. In 2012, after more than two years of development, the company launched a game-changing service called One Way.

One Way is designed to demonstrate to textile manufacturers, brands and retailers that it is possible to bring together the dual objectives of ecology and economy. The tool provides a fast, measurable and reliable approach to the selection of chemical product and resource-saving process solutions.

“At Archroma, we continuously challenge the status quo in the deep belief that we can make our industry sustainable, and we do this using the strong foundation of an expertise built over more than 120 years. We are very excited to meet customers, brands, retailers and consumers in Shanghai, and show them how Archroma can support them in the needs and challenges they face in their own markets,” said Robert Liu, head of textile sales & marketing china, Archroma.
