Denim is so very special. Maybe no other piece of our closet has the power to tell the world how we feel or who we are.
At Archroma, we share your passion for denim, and we bring our expertise, powerful innovation and our commitment to sustainability into developing cutting-edge dyeing technologies and systems solutions to support your creativity.
The Archroma way: safe, efficient, enhanced. It’s our nature.
From fiber to finish, Archroma plays a key role throughout the entire textile supply chain, with unique system solutions for spinning, pretreatment, dyeing, coating & finishing and wash-down effects.
Archroma’s new aniline-free* indigo dye, Denisol® Pure Indigo 30 liq, reduces risk when producing the traditional, iconic indigo blue that consumers associate with denim and jeans.
During production, some of the aniline stays locked into the indigo pigment and is difficult to wash off the fabric. The remainder of the aniline impurity, approximately 300 metric tons, is discharged during dyeing. This can be an issue as aniline is toxic to aquatic life. In addition, exposure levels to factory workers can be high.
The toxic chemical is therefore starting to feature on the restricted substance lists (RSL) of some major clothing brands and retailers.
