Can we have neutral wardrobe essentials that go a long way?

WE LOVE:

  • Durable wardrobe essentials in elegant neutral earth tones
  • Colors created responsibly

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Earth tone shades usually come with reproducibility issues
  • Fabrics therefore usually need to be dyed twice, leading to lower productivity and unnecessary use of precious resources

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.

SOLID EARTH/ A robust coloration system for consistent and durable earthy tones on cotton woven fabrics and reduced use of water, chemicals and energy

Drimaren® Ultimate HF

Reactive dyes for cellulose

  • A special selection of highly compatible, problem solving, elements engineered to resolve the key issues faced when dyeing problematic pale to medium earth tone shades
  • Suitable for pad batch and continuous dyeing procedures
  • Very low, on-tone, tailing
  • Excellent shade transfer from lab to bulk and bulk to bulk
  • Photochromic free, high light and all-round wet fastness performance

Leonil® EHC liq

Anionic penetration accelerant

  • Rapid wetting and deaerating action
  • Essential for short padding times (fabric remains in the pad liquor before squeezing less than 2 seconds)

Ladipur® RSK liq

Soaping agent

  • Suitable for continuous washing off procedures
  • Fast and efficient removal of hydrolysed reactive dye to achieve the optimum fastness level
  • Prevent the negative effect of hardness forming salts on the solubility and therefore washing off performance of the unfixed hydrolysed dye.
