FROM FIBER TO FINISH

From fiber to finish, Archroma plays a key role throughout the entire textile supply chain, with unique chemicals for spinning, pretreatment, dyeing, coating & finishing and wash-down effects.


A UNIVERSE OF COLOR EFFECTS – FAR BEYOND INDIGO

The Archroma denim portfolio offers a scope of possibilities for effects and colors, from the authentic roots of indigo to the most innovative solutions; ranging from Denisol® Indigo 30 liq and Diresul® RDT liquid pre-reduced sulfur dyes in dyeing, to Optisul® C sulfur dyes and Printofix® pigment preparation in coating.

Archroma is the recognized leader in integrated solutions, offering best-in-class auxiliaries for bespoke process packages, maintaining high standards of quality and sustainability.

Together with our global footprint and recognized expertise, we bring you a portfolio of products designed to address the specific dyeing requirements for all types of effects.


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).

ADVANCED DENIM – 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.

Diresul® RDT blue specialties overcome the limitations of conventional, indigo-based denim production:

  • No single blue base: time to widen your horizons
  • A vast range of new blue shades and effects

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.

Your creativity is limitless.
