DyStar to Unveil New Sustainable Dye Solutions

DyStar, a leading provider of sustainable products and services for the textile and leather industry, has revealed new innovative, eco-friendly dye solutions.

The first is a new range of reactive dyes, called Remazol SAM, intended for pale to deep shades, which provides a high color yield and build-up, high fixation yield and good fastness levels, DyStar announced Thursday.

And in response to increasing ecological pressure on Mordant Black dyes for wool, DyStar developed a new, patented Realan Black MF-PV, which provides a completely metal free dyeing process. Realan Black MF-PV wet processing fastnesses higher than Mordant Black 9 types and “far superior” to Reactive Black 5 types for wool black. The new Realan Black MF-PV is APEO and AOX free, and in full compliance with Oeko Tex Standard 100 and meets all relevant Restricted Substance Lists (RSL).

DyStar also created five new dyes, called Dianix XF2, designed for excellent wet fastness performance on critical fabrics. As for polyamide apparel exhaust dyeing and continuous polyamide carpet dyeing, the new Telon Red M-CP closes a critical gap in the Telon® range, the company noted.

Lava Cell NSB, a new cold, neutral bio-polish enzyme that gives a superior bio-polish performance at cold temperatures, is another one of DyStar’s latest endeavors.

The company intends to unveil the new dye solutions at Interdye & Printing Eurasia 2014 in Istanbul’s Expo Center this June 5-7.
