Colorant sponsors SDC technical seminar
Subhash Bhargava, Managing Director of Ahmedabad-based Colorant Ltd was the Guest of Honour at the half-day seminar based on “Novel Techniques in Colouration” at Hotel Lords Plaza, Delhi Gate, Ring Road, Surat recently.
He explained about the present dyestuff industries position and how the big players in India and China are playing their role in price fluctuation of raw materials (dye intermediates). Being an SME, Colorant had to struggle hard to become a consistent supplier in reactive dyes and catering to 650 end users while exporting to about 15 countries. He said that looking into the constraint of raw materials Colorant is setting up a dye intermediate plant at Saykha, Bharuch, Gujarat.
Dr Mahapatra, President, Colorant Ltd spoke about the new range of reactive dyes launched by Colorant since last few years which saves time, energy, water, etc in dyeing of cotton fabrics. He emphasised on using Colron CN and Colron SF dyes for light / medium shades and Colron GLX/Colron CES dyes to be used for dark / heavy dark shades. All these dyes are giving very good results all over India and abroad. The seminar was arranged by the SDC India officials and attended by Surat process house owners and technicians. There was technical interaction between the audience and Colorant technical team led by Dr Mahapatra, Arun Desai, Sanjay Chavda, Chetan Mulani and Umesh Patil. The seminar was followed by dinner.
