Archroma has launched Foron SP-WF, a range of high wet-fast disperse dyes for sportswear and active wear applications.
The dyes are especially suited for the coloration of polyester fibers and microfibers, and polyester/elastane blends, in exhaustion applications. The Foron SP-WF range which includes primary and ternary color grades has been developed to fulfill the high color wet fastness and performance requirements of sportswear manufacturers and brands. The core ternary color grades enable deep shades at lower dyeing temperatures on sensitive polyester/elastane fabrics without causing excessive fiber damage, saving energy resources and meeting the high fastness demand of leading companies. Consumers want deep color that stays put on the fiber and brands are defining their requirements accordingly. With Foron SP-WF, Archroma offers manufacturers of sportswear textiles a solution that combines high levels of wet fastness with high productivity and low resource consumption.
The product is at the core of Archroma’s Fast Sport, a coloration system for polyester knitted sportswear, providing the best fastness in the shortest possible time with a reduced environmental footprint. By using these dyes, manufacturers can significantly reduce their consumption of time, energy, chemical, and water, as well as their CO2 emissions. Archroma, a leader in color and specialty chemicals, believes it is possible to make the textile industry sustainable, economically and ecologically.
