After having launched Levafix Eco Black in April 2015, DyStar is now introducing two new dyes in the Levafix Eco range; Levafix Eco Navy and Levafix Eco Forest at ITMA in hall 18, stand B 105.

A DyStar press release said, “These dyestuffs are based on new chemistry, free of p-chloroaniline (p-CA) or other regulatory controlled amines found in many commodity reactive dyes.

“They are compliant with all relevant Restricted Substance Lists (RS) and with Oeko–Tex Standard 100,” the company added.

Levafix Eco Navy is a neutral Navy offering best colour constancy in different light sources and due to its superior chemistry, higher wet and light fastness properties can be achieved compared to conventional reactive Navy dyes.

According to DyStar it has excellent light; ISO 105 BO2 Xenon perspiration and also light fastness of ISO 105-B07 compliance, which is a former Nike PLF test.

It also offers ISO 105 C06 C2S compliance, 60C with perborate wash fastness and is also superior to conventional reactive Navy dyes.

“Levafix Eco Navy also gives excellent results in the Adidas wash fastness test at 40C,” the company informed.

On the other hand, the Levafix Eco Forest is a bluish dark-green shade that is a good option for shading reactive blacks.

“Levafix Eco Forest has a high colour yield, a strong build-up and shows better technical performance compared to dark greens that are based on conventional reactive blacks,” it stated.

The Levafix Eco Forest offers good light and perspiration; light fastness properties; good chlorinated water fastness; very good fastness to multiple oxidative wash and has versatile application in exhaust, Cold Pad Batch and continuous.

“These excellent oxidative wash and light fastness properties lead to a more sustainable textile end-product due to better retention of the original shade,” DyStar observed.

“With this novelty, DyStar provides additional innovation to the textile industry to achieve best quality with minimal environmental impact,” the dyes producer noted. (AR)
