Archroma lends sustainability touch to new offerings

Archroma, a global leader in specialty chemicals, showcased at the Denim Premiere Vision (DPV) show in Barcelona, May 27-28, how it is leveraging innovative chemistry to generate several new fashion-forward, eco-conscious colours and finishes. These advances add value for consumers, mills and brand owners alike.

Make an impression with Optisul® C dyes
Archroma has expanded its application range for its Optisul C liquid dyes to include new colours and treatment options on printed fabrics. These dyes will allow garment makers to create chemical contrasts on printed and coated jeans.

The Optisul C products are affinity-free, sulfide-free* dyes, suitable for GOTS** and bluesign®*** approval. They also allow easier application than current piece dyeing techniques for physical and chemical wash-down effects.

Dive into an ocean of new, bright blue colors
As part of its growing colours portfolio, Archroma introduced at DPV a new, bright blue sulphur dye called Diresul® Pacific Blue RDT. It is the first in a planned series of bright greens and blues ´ all bearing ocean-related names. The company will have garment samples of the Diresul Pacific Blue RDT at its booth, as well as colour samples of more shades that are due to be commercially available later this year. This new range also will be suitable for use with Archroma´s Advanced Denim dyeing solutions.

Nuria Estape, Marketing Executive for Special Dyes at Archroma, notes: ´In line with the fair´s theme and with upcoming fashion trends, we are here at DPV to launch a new constellation of vibrant colour options for your denim and casualwear. These will come available in a wide palette of blueish tones and looks, especially achievable through our Advanced Denim technology.´

´Archroma´s new coloring options for denim and casualwear enable manufacturers to expand their color horizons,´ added Estape, ´while our existing Advanced Denim technology will help to use precious resources in a more responsible way.´

Keep track on sustainability with EarthColors
Archroma diverts agricultural and herbal waste from the landfill and uses it to produce a palette of rich green, brown and grey EarthColors dyes, offering brand owners a compelling sustainability story.

This recently launched range also offers consumers and brand owners a new level of environmentally focused transparency. Archroma will put all the information about individual batches of colour on NFC hang tags to be attached to each item of clothing. Each hang tag incorporates a chip with all the information on it, and prospective buyers in the shop can access information by using Near Field Communications technology incorporated into their phones. NFC chips not only can give shoppers access to detailed product information but, with the use of a special app, also can provide brand owners with complete tracking and traceability data regarding each garment.

Experience the attraction of SmartRepel
Archroma´s SmartRepel is a novel finishing range that is not based on fluorine. SmartRepel Hydro provides water repellency performance to casual clothing while retaining softness and breathability.

Be sure to stop by Booth #C4 at the DPV show to meet the Archroma denim specialist team, learn about the company´s innovative and eco-advanced color and effect technologies, and get a first-hand look at its creative and colorful solutions for denim and casualwear.
