Also showed is a new affinity free dyes to expand colour horizons and in partnership with Tonello, the comapny promotes efficient “blue jeans look” garment dyeing process. As we all know, with the “Advanced Denim” concept, bestowed with the prestigious 2012 ICIS Innovation Award and Innovation with the Best Environmental Benefit Award and the European EU Ecolabel***, Clariant aims at developing new technologies for exciting colour and material effects, while reducing the impact of denim manufacturing on the environment.
Visitors of DPV will be able to discover prototypes and garment collections featuring the latest developments of Advanced Denim at Clariant’s booth H 36, such as the latest “illustration collection” showing “blue ideas come true”, “Soft colours” made easy with new Optisul® C, based on Diresul® RDT dyes. The company will show denim manufacturers how they can expand their colour horizons with a new range of six affinity-free sulphide-free dyes especially designed to produce soft denim colours in continuous dyeing processes. Also “Blue jeans look” is now possible in garment dyeing, it is highly desirable, aso for non-jeans items such as knitted garments, but it is very difficult to produce, especially when involving garment dyeing techniques making use of traditional indigo dyestuff. Finding the Holy Grail in the fashion industry is what Clariant might have found with machine manufacturer Tonello. Additionally there is a presentation of technology meets lifestyle with Clariant’s finishing products: C6 based Nuva® N 4547 and Nuva N1811, or fluorine free Arkophob® FR, are designed to help denim stay clean and fresh, whilst Clariant’s Arkofix® ELF provides just the right amount of 3D effects that make that much sought after effortless chic look good.
