Bringing indigo back to its roots

Archroma’s Denisol® Indigo 30 liq is a newly developed pre-reduced liquid indigo solution that is manufactured in Archroma’s award winning ‘zero liquid discharge’ manufacturing plant.

Denisol® 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 (e.g. bluesign® and GOTS).

Break new ground with aniline-free* indigo for denim.
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.

The purest Indigo

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.

For designers and brand owners who long for authentic indigo inspiration, the new Denisol® Pure Indigo 30 liq now also makes it possible to produce indigo-dyed denim without high levels aniline impurities.

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.
