DyStar Introduces Polyester Dyes That Cut Resource Consumption

DyStar Group wants to help brands and retailers save resources.

The colorant supplier on Tuesday introduced Cadira Polyester, part of its recently launched Cadira concept and the latest addition to its Resource Efficiency program.

Combining Dianix disperse dyes, Sera textile processing auxiliaries and the Eliot process optimization tool, Optidye PES, Cadira Polyester claims to improve right-first-time performance and reduce energy, water and chemical consumption as well as the effluent load.

In addition, DyStar said the program reduces processing time, thereby improving the utilization of machinery, resulting in a productivity increase of up to 58 percent.

Cadira debuted in April at Interdye Shanghai with Reactive, a concept for reactive cellulose dyeing, and DyStar said it will soon announce additional components aimed at increasing resource efficiency and productivity in the textile supply chain.

Earlier this month, DyStar became the first textile dye company to earn Cradle to Cradle material health at the gold level for a selection of its products use in vat, disperse and reactive dyeing of textiles. This accreditation means that no substances present in the formulation at a concentration of 100 parts per million or above pose a risk to humans or the environment during textile dyeing, use or end-of-use.
