Huntsman Textile Effects introduces its new Eriopon E3-Save dyeing auxiliary for the new “single-bath scour-dye-reduction clear concept” providing the shortest possible processing cycle for polyester thus saving time, water, energy and cost.

The demand for polyester and man-made fibres is booming as sports and athleisure apparel markets expand rapidly around the world. At the same time, brands, consumers and mills are increasingly focused on sustainability and performance resulting in raising demand for optimization of the costly, time consuming and resource intensive polyester dyeing process.

Developed by Huntsman Textile Effects specifically to meet these challenges, the advanced all-in-one Eriopon E3-Save dyeing auxiliary is engineered to help the mills achieve considerable savings in the water, energy and time for the intensive process of dyeing polyester and its blends by combining pre-scouring, dyeing and reduction clearing in a single bath.

“Eriopon E3-Save dyeing auxiliary delivers in all critical stages of polyester dyeing from pre-scouring to washing-off for exceptional performance and environmental and economic sustainability. Its environmental credentials offer mills greater processing flexibility and an optimum price-performance ratio,” said Oliver Gerlach, Global Marketing Manager for Process Chemicals at Huntsman Textile Effects. “We expect this latest offering to support the textile industry’s drive towards more eco-friendly practices.”

The Eriopon E3-Save auxiliary can be used to successfully dye in jet applications without the need for anti-foaming products. The superior levelling of Eriopon E3-Save auxiliary is also said to increase reproducibility, allowing mills to dispense with additional levelling agents, according to the manufacturer.

Polyester, microfibers and blends treated with Eriopon E3-Save auxiliary comply with the requirements of bluesign, Level 3 of the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Gateway (ZDHC) and the Restricted Substances Lists of international brands, in addition to being suitable for processing of textiles in compliance with Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

Eriopon E3-Save auxiliary is an addition to the dyEvolution range – Huntsman’s commitment to an environmentally and economically sustainable textile value chain through its range of high-performance products.
