Towards waterless denim dyeing

Nowadays, brands are becoming more and more eco-conscious in their choice of materials and suppliers, and are integrating the growing importance of sustainable processing. With its multi-award winning ADVANCED DENIM technology, Archroma has developed a more ecological denim dyeing process. Instead of indigo, the Denim-Ox and Pad/Sizing-Ox processes use a new eco-friendlier generation of concentrated sulfur dyes, Diresul® RDT blue specialties.

Revolution in Blue

Diresul® RDT blue specialties are a selection of Archroma’s blue dyestuffs that enhance blue jeans’ look. They allow a vast range of casts and wash-down effects while offering high flexibility with application systems, great versatility on final effects and good performance.

Archroma’s Diresul® RDT blue specialties are based on Diresul® RDT Indicolors and, as part of an ever-growing portfolio, a new collection of vibrant, ocean-themed bright sulfur blue dyes, Diresul® RDT Ocean Blues. Good combinability between them and with the rest of Diresul® RDT dyestuffs and Archroma’s application systems create a universe of blue effects for denim and non-denim fabrics.

Black & Grey

Black sulfur colorant’s shades and effects allowed it to carve out a niche in the over-crowded blue denim market.

Archroma’s dye portfolio of conventional and black specialties allow to create a universe of greys and deep black and navies. From superficial to solid blacks for both extreme wash-down and stay black effects.

Colors for denim

In the area of color denim, Archroma’s portfolio has a wide range of colors and effects to combine with indigo or to create fancy color denim. From earthy and warm tones to look beat on contemporary workwear silhouettes; vibrant colors as an important trend; until military greens & khakis for streetwear, menswear and active.

Your creativity is limitless.
