DyStar offers a range of sustainable products for the textile industry, which helps promote sustainability across the textile supply chain.
Low Impact Dyes
Remazol Ultra RGB reactive dye technology is particularly designed for the problematic deep shades on cotton. This innovation from DyStar represents the Best Available Technology for dyeing of deep shades by reducing the impact on the effluent load whilst supporting the higher productivity requirement for short lead times demanded by the textile supply chain.
Save Water and Energy
Sera Zyme C-PE
In order to remove natural fats, waxes, inorganic salts and heavy metals from the cotton greige, the textile industry typically uses a pre-treatment scouring process when dyeing deep shades on cotton. The process uses significant amount of water, electricity and steam.
DyStar has introduced Sera Zyme C-PE, which substitutes the conventional scouring with bio-scouring process.
Bio scouring, using the enzyme pectinase to remove waxes and oils from cotton fabrics, ensures good fiber wet-ability and can therefore promote consistent dye penetration and diffusion. Sera® Zyme C-PE also works well for knitted polyester-cotton blend fabrics.
Tests have demonstrated that the use of Sera Zyme C-PE in bio scouring can provide the following savings and resource efficiencies compared with traditional methods:
