Cartasol® F Dyes
Highly substantive, anionic, direct dyes, specially developed for the paper industry. They are particularly suitable for dyeing wood-free paper and board in the stock and at the size press.
At Archroma, we take pride in our pioneering efforts in developing patented and REACH-registered chemistries for compostable dyes. With our dedicated research and development team, we offer a unique range of anionic direct, cationic direct, and modified basic liquid dyes, specially designed for paper applications.
Colorants from our Carta®, Cartasol® F, and Cartafix® range have been meticulously selected to meet the growing demand for environmentally friendlier coloration in the paper industry. As one of the few companies with a complete color range of certified compostable colorants for industrial compostation, we are committed to promoting sustainability.
Our compostable dyes and fixatives for colored tissue and paper not only provide exceptional color performance but also meet the most rigorous compostability standards. When applied to compostable materials at a specified concentration of dry weight, our dyes fulfill the evaluation criteria for heavy metals and fluorine, biodegradation, ecotoxicity, and plant growth tests, as outlined in EN 13432 (2000), NF-T51-800 (2015), ASTM D6400 (2012, 2021), and ISO 17088 (2012).
