ERCA to show sustainable solutions at ITMA 2015

Nov '15
Northern Italy based ERCA group of chemical companies will show the most innovative, performing, efficient and sustainable solutions for the textile industry at the international textile machinery expo ITMA 2015, to be held in Milan from 12-19 November 2015.
 
ERCA will present solutions, Made in Italy, through the development and manufacturing of its chemical specialties and intermediates for the textile industry, at hall 8, booth E 137 during the eight-day fair.
 
The company, headquartered near Bergamo, has six operational plants in Italy, Poland, Turkey, Brazil, China and India, and one plant under construction in Malaysia. The company offers products and solutions for the textile industry that conform to the principles of sustainable development, it said in a press release.
 
Owing to its privileged access to a real dye department, along with its product laboratories and adjoining application laboratories, ERCA is at the forefront of development. Its comprehensive assortment of products, together with its expertise in textile processes, produce real efficiencies in the processing work cycles, while meeting the requirements set by end user. The solutions engineered by ERCA encompass the environmental and ethical requirements that textile dyers and finishers have to meet in accordance with various standards, with ReactEvo and OneTone being its most innovative products.
 
ReactEvo is a simple and very efficient process based on a radically new post-treatment concept in dyeing with reactive dyestuffs. It allows a drastic reduction in energy consumption and water volumes, significantly cutting the total treatment time. Comparative results and colour fastness metrics exceed even the best achievements of today's standard processes. The sustainability benefit is outstanding: ReactEvo allows energy savings of up to 70 per cent, water savings to 50 per cent and processing time up to 20 per cent. All ReactEvo auxiliaries (DYE, WBS, PHR and TWE) are confirmed compliant with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 requirements and all are bluesign and GOTS approved.
 
OneTone is a new dyeing process created by ERCA in collaboration with multinational Japanese manufacturer Asahi Kasei. It is the result of a study to dye Asahi Kasei's Roica Colour Perfect, a unique, innovative and fully dye-able premium stretch yarn that can offer great tone on tone colour depth, an imperceptible matt aspect that can be used, for the first time, to match dye with all major fibres such as cellulose, nylon, wool and silk. OneTone achieves the best results in terms of dyeability, colour strength and colour fastness, while being an environmentally friendly and safe process that is bluesign approved. (RKS)
