Do you know the eco-impact of a deep colored t-shirt ?

What we love:

  • A deep colored garment
  • …that doesn’t fade in the wash


But did you know?

  • Deep colored garments have a high cost of dyeing...
  • which requires a longer dyeing process...
  • ...and huge amount of water and energy...
  • and the dye can often rub off on other fabrics

The Archroma Way: Safe, Efficient, Enhanced. It’s our nature.

1. SAFE – IT’S OUR NATURE TO PROTECT
A solid core: Our deeply rooted goal to protect people and our planet.

Safe to use, safe to release and also safe to wear.

2. EFFICIENT – IT’S OUR NATURE TO RETHINK SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING
Innovating application processes that minimize resources and maximize productivity, both in our and our customers’ manufacturing as well as by setting ourselves ambitious sustainability goals.

3. ENHANCED – IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE
Your innovation is critical. Additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics give additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced.

DEEP DIVE 2.0 / A complete system for maximum coloration efficiency with enhanced fastness, and dramatically reduced use of water, chemicals and energy

Blue Magic

'All-in-one' discontinuous pretreatment

Archroma’s DEEP DIVE 2.0 compared to benchmark exhaust process for 100% CO substrates at LR 6.1

The DEEP DIVE 2.0 system / Main benefits in a nutshell

  • Safe products from a reliable global partner which applies international safety standards
  • Increases profitability through lower processing & operating costs
  • Differentiation with improved resource utilization for brands that demand and drive sustainable production
  • A short and robust system approach:
    • Right-first-time productivity
    • Improved fabric quality. Less pilling due to reduced mechanical abrasion
    • Improved resource optimization in terms of water & energy
    • Shorter production process allows for 145 additional batches/year
  • Dry and wet rubbing fastness improvement
