Do you tread a fine line every time you select your sizing agent?

AS PROCESSORS WE LOVE:

  • The ability to manufacture luxurious valuable woven fabrics…
  • …with minimal intervention during weaving…
  • … and trouble free waste water management; low BOD/COD
  • … with the option of recycling the size bath

BUT DID YOU KNOW:

  • Starch-based size can reduce weaving efficiency and overall loom productivity…
  • … and have a serious impact on waste water treatment costs

The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: 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
    Innovation is critical. With it, we create additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics and sustainable differentiation to bring additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced.
