Archroma, a leader in colour and specialty chemicals towards sustainable solutions, will be at Techtextil India to present its latest innovations and system solutions aimed to help technical textile manufacturers in India with optimised productivity and/or value creation in their markets.

Archroma offers a wide portfolio of dyes and chemicals aiming to increase sustainability and innovation along the entire value chain, from fibre to finish. “We are continuously developing innovations and solution systems that help increase productivity and create value for textile manufacturers in India,” said Anjani Prasad, Head of Sales, India, Archroma. “We do that with in mind the planet and its inhabitants, in line with the objectives of The Archroma way: safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature.

The Archroma experts present at the exhibition will introduce for the first time to audiences in India Fadex AS New, a new “super UV protector” to make automotive and transportation textiles more resistant to light, Foron SP-WF, a range of high-performance disperse dyes for polyester sportswear, and its innovation Appretan NTR, a water-based textile coating binder that rallies renewable natural ingredients for applications such as tea bags and coffee filters or capsules

The Archroma way

The solution systems and innovations presented by Archroma have all been selected for their compliance with The Archroma Way: safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature. The approach finds its origin in Archroma’s deep belief that it is possible to make the textile industry sustainable.

At Techtextil India, visitors will be able to discover 10 systems developed along the principles of The Archroma Way to help them create value in their textile applications and markets.

Archroma will present two systems suited to textile manufacturers serving the automotive and transportation market: Light Fast Car, a system designed to keep fabric colours deep, vibrant and matched day after day; and Safe Seats, a halogen-free flame retardant coating system for synthetic leather upholstery.

For outdoor and activewear, the company will present:

  • Color Vibe, a system for nylon sportswear to maintain colour vibrancy, time after time, wash after wash;
  • Fast Sport, a colouration system for polyester knitted sportswear, providing fastness in the shortest possible time with a reduced environmental footprint;
  • Odor Control, a system for improved material longevity, freshness and wearing comfort due to the lasting dual-action technology of Sanitized Odoractiv 10. Odour-causing bacteria cannot adhere to the textile surface and bad smells are trapped and neutralised; and permastink cannot build-up in your sportswear;
  • Wick Stop, an anti-wicking system to keep your feet drier in the wet, with maximum mesh sneaker durability.

For workwear and uniforms, Archroma will highlight its Power Cotton, a system for comfortable cotton fabrics with more than 5 times higher abrasion resistance; Smooth As Iron, a non-iron finishing system designed to keep fabric smooth, soft and strong, especially on collars and cuffs; Odor Control; and Tough Camo, A non-infrared reflective pigment printing system for military wear, with high durability and dramatically reduced water consumption.

And for nonwovens, the company will present its Filter It Clean, a formaldehyde-free and APEO-free bonding system that is said to make nonwovens strong and safe even when wet.
