DyStar Group, a leading solution provider of colourants, auxiliaries and services, has launched a new concept of its resource saving module – Cadira Reactive/Disperse Continuous. It is a modified pad-dry-thermosol-pad-steam dyeing process for open width PES/CO fabrics.

In contrast to the standard PDTPS process, Cadira Reactive/Disperse Continuous does not require a separate reduction clearing process and thus saves more than 40% chemicals, water and energy, according to the company. This effect is obtained by using a special dye choice of Dianix XF/XF2 and SF disperse dyes in combination with selected Levafix and Remazol reactive dyes and a modified steaming and wash-off process with Sera auxiliaries.

“The Cadira concepts considerably reduce process costs, water, waste and energy consumption and machine utilisation. Cadira supports brands and retailers and their production partners in their effort to save valuable resources and to reduce the carbon footprint of their textile goods,” the company explains. “DyStar will continue their effort to support the textile industry to reduce the environmental footprint.”

The first Cadira module was developed in 2016. Since then DyStar has launched Cadira concepts for various substrates and applications. So far, the following Cadira concepts are available: Cadira Polyester; Cadira Recycled Polyester; Cadira Vat; Cadira Reactive; Cadira Procion PX; Cadira Wool; and Cadira Denim.

Ð’yStar Group is a solution provider, offering customers a complete range of colorants, auxiliaries and services. The DyStar Group has offices, competence centres, agencies and production plants in over 50 countries.
