The Archroma Way

The solution systems and innovations presented by Archroma have all been selected for their compliance with “The Archroma Way: safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature”. The approach finds its origin in Archroma’s deep belief that it is possible to make the textile industry sustainable.

At Techtextil India, visitors will be able to discover 10 systems developed along the principles of The Archroma Way to help them create value in their textile applications and markets, such as:


Archroma will present two systems ideally suited to textile manufacturers serving the automotive & transportation market:

  • Light Fast Car, a system designed to keep fabric colors deep, vibrant and matched day after day;
  • Safe Seats, a halogen-free* flame retardant coating system for synthetic leather upholstery.


  • Color Vibe, a system for nylon sportswear to maintain color vibrancy, time after time, wash after wash;
  • Fast Sport, a coloration system for polyester knitted sportswear, providing the best fastness in the shortest possible time with a reduced environmental footprint;
  • Odor Control, a system for improved material longevity, freshness and wearing comfort due to the lasting dual-action technology of Sanitized® Odoractiv 10. Odor-causing bacteria cannot adhere to the textile surface and bad smells are trapped and neutralized; and permastink cannot build-up in your sportswear;
  • Wick Stop, an anti-wicking system to keep your feet drier in the wet, with maximum mesh sneaker durability;


  • Power Cotton, a system for comfortable cotton fabrics with more than 5 times higher abrasion resistance;
  • Smooth As Iron, a non-iron finishing system that keeps fabric smooth, soft and strong, especially on collars and cuffs;
  • Odor Control, (see above);
  • Tough Camo, A non-infrared reflective pigment printing system for military wear, with high durability and dramatically reduced water consumption;


Filter It Clean, a formaldehyde-free* and APEO-free bonding system that makes non-wovens strong and safe even when wet.
