Archroma highlights nature-inspired solutions at ISPO Brandnew

Archroma, a leader in colour and specialty chemicals, is keeping nature top-of-mind for its ISPO debut with a showcase of advanced innovations and solutions to enhance active and sportswear, this month.

Archroma believes, based on its extensive experience in textile processing, that sustainability can generate innovation, performance and can even lead to cost reductions for customers. The company will be at the ISPO Brandnew Village to showcase how its products and services can help visitors meet future market demands, foster future technologies and contribute to a more sustainable textiles industry.

Solutions

The company will present solutions ranging from high-fast dyes Foron S-WF, Nylosan S, Printofix TF, Drimaren HF, and the new-in-range Foron S luminous dyes, to EarthColors nature inspired biomass-waste based dyes, supported by Archroma’s Color Atlas to boost your creativity.

On display will also be thermo-control and protection solutions to help make your gear more resistant to extreme weather conditions from heatwaves to rain pours: coldblack, HyDry, Smartrepel Hydro, Appretan S and Sanitized. The company will also feature care effects solutions to bring softness and comfort to your gear whilst looking good at all times, Siligen, Solusoft, Ceralube and Arkofix.

Archroma will also demonstrate to ISPO visitors how its One Way Process Simulator allows brands, retailers and textile manufacturers to take sustainability to a new level. The new, online software can be used to mimic and compare products and processes, and thus calculate the ecological and economical profile of the final end-product.

EarthColors

EarthColors is a range of products created from agricultural and herbal waste and embracing the latest in communication technology to enable transparency and traceability through the supply chain to consumers – from nature to fashion.

Archroma's EarthColors have been selected for the ISPO Textrends Forum for Fall/Winter 2019/20, Eco Era category, by an independent jury of textile experts. The ISPO Textrends Eco Era features innovations with a strong sustainability element.

Smartrepel Hydro

Smartrepel Hydro is a nature-friendlier protection agent based on distinctive micro-encapsulated, non-PFC based technology offering durable water repellency to polyester, polyamide and cotton-based textiles. At the show, Archroma will introduce its brand new Smartrepel Hydro AM, a “universal” addition to the range allowing seamless application on all fibres with the same high level of performance as the rest of the Smartrepel technology.

Sanitized Odoractiv

Archroma will introduce for the first time to ISPO visitors a new active-odour-control technology for polyester textiles, Sanitized Odoractiv, to prevent the formation of odours and in particular the persistent smell (permastink) heavily criticised by consumers. This technology has been awarded the Swiss Technology Award.
