At Colombiatex 2019, Archroma will present both its most established and innovative technologies to create authentic and dazzling denim looks in a more sustainable and responsible way: DenisolÂ®, bringing indigo back to its roots â€“ now aniline-free. Archromaâ€™s DenisolÂ® range is a newly developed pre-reduced liquid indigo solution that is manufactured in Archromaâ€™s award winning â€˜zero liquid dischargeâ€™ manufacturing plant in Pakistan. DenisolÂ® Indigo 30 liq is compliant with major official eco-standards and requirements from retailers, brands and fashion leading companies and helps to produce fabrics suitable for current eco-labeling such as bluesignÂ®, GOTS and C2C. Responding to demands for a non-toxic alternative to the dyes that are used for the iconic and traditional indigo blue that consumers associate with denim and jeans, Archroma just announced the new DenisolÂ® Pure Indigo 30. The breakthrough aniline-free* DenisolÂ® Pure Indigo 30 which can be used together with Archromaâ€™s dyeing auxiliaries for customized dyeing system solutions - to create cleaner denim with the purest indigo on the market.
ADVANCED DENIM, towards waterless denim dyeing - Based on the Denim-Ox and Pad/Sizing-Ox dyeing processes, Archromaâ€™s multiawarded ADVANCED DENIM dyeing technology, based on DiresulÂ® RDT blue specialties, allows savings of up to 92% in water, 87% in cotton waste and 30% in energy, compared to a conventional denim dyeing process.
The technology has been adopted by prestigious brands including Patagonia and received the prestigious 2012 ICIS Innovation Award and Innovation with Best Environmental Benefit Award.
DiresulÂ® RDT Ocean Blues, bright and beautiful - Archromaâ€™s DiresulÂ® RDT Ocean Blues are a collection of vibrant, ocean-themed bright sulfur blue dyes. These unique dyes and their auxiliaries bring out the best of indigo, improve workability, dyeing consistency and process safety. The DiresulÂ® Ocean Blues can be combined with the DenisolÂ® Indigo range in bottoming/topping manufacturing routes - to create exciting avant-garde blue styles.
New in the range, DiresulÂ® Fast Black RDT - Archromaâ€™s latest black innovation, DiresulÂ® Fast Black RDT is an exclusive sulfur black dyestuff technology that is fast to chlorine and resistant to the strong oxidative agents applied on home laundry.
