DyStar introduces internet based tool Eliot at ITMA
Nov '15
At ITMA 2015, dyes producer DyStar introduced Eliot, a newly developed internet based tool for product selection and process optimisation in the dyeing process.

“The tool was developed by consolidating different expert systems and information databases into one comprehensive function for DyStar customers,” a press release stated.

“With a well-structured user interface, Eliot is very intuitive and can easily be used and the responsive design, offers the flexibility to use Eliot on any computer or tablet and with various browsers,” it said.

Eliot currently consists of four modules like Green Selection, Product Finder, Optidye and Information and more modules will be added in the near future.

The Green Selection module contains the DyStar 'Positive Lists' for leading brands & retailers or eco standards.

According to DyStar, the 'Positive Lists' are a selection of recommended DyStar products that are compliant to the 'Brands & Retailers' Restricted Substances Lists' or the selected eco standard.

Eliot allows the user to filter or sort products and save product selections as favourites and these favourites can also be used in the other modules.

All modules offer a link to directly open the technical data sheets of the individual products, which contain product details such as suitability for certain dyeing and printing processes, dye characteristics, etc.

The Product Finder module allows the user to search for technical properties of DyStar products by fastness criteria and dyeing or application performance.

“The selection can be a combination of both fastness and dyeing properties and the result can be exported to Excel,” the company added.

Optidye programs offer recipe or process optimisation that help to shorten the dyeing cycle and reduce the effluent load.

“Optidye programs increase the reliability of the dyeing process for better right-first-time processing and improved quality of finished products,” DyStar explained.

In addition, Eliot contains a variety of information about DyStar products and processes like brochures, shade cards, technical data sheets and testing methods.

“This was only the first step in the development of Eliot and Dystar will continuously extend and improve the tool by adding more function modules and by making it available in different languages,” it informed.

In addition, more restricted substance lists and technical information will be added and access to Eliot is free and easy and can be done by registering on the DyStar website. (AR)
