Based on Huntsman Textile Effects’ award-winning range of AVITERA SE reactive dyes, the new formulations enable designers and brands to select on-trend colours that meet their performance specifications and environmental responsibilities, according to the manufacturer.

Using this colour system, designers, brands and mills can speed the time from inspiration to production while consistently delivering high-quality products to achieve the highest level of light, wet and chlorine fastness. Textiles dyed with these new formulations also conform to the most stringent international industry standards and are free of para-chloro-aniline (PCA) and other regulated chemicals, Huntsman reports.

Accurate dyeing

The 210 dye formulations launched by Huntsman Textile Effects addresses evolving consumers’ tastes and significant market needs, according to the company. These include shades with pale, medium, dark, intense dark and brilliant shades, and even deep black.

The poly-reactive AVITERA SE dyes are designed to ensure accurate dyeing and rapid and very high exhaustion rate for cotton and other cellulosic fibres and their blends. They are said to help mills enhance Right-First-Time performance and improve productivity by 25% or more.

At the same time, according to the manufacturer, they provide a significantly better environmental footprint than any conventional dyeing and washing-off process or current best available technology.
