Archroma to reveal "Advanced Denim" innovations at InDIGO

Mar '14
Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals, and the former textile, paper and emulsions businesses of Clariant, will reveal inspirational design possibilities achievable with eco-advanced denim production at the InDIGO denim B2B expo.
 
Archroma will demonstrate how fabric producers and brands can benefit from its "Advanced Denim" concept to expand color horizons, create soil-resistant finishes and significantly reduce the impact of denim manufacturing on the environment. 
 
When using Advanced Denim technology based on “Denim-Ox” and “Pad/Sizing-Ox” processes, water consumption to be reduced by up to 92%, up to 63% of the usual cotton waste can be avoided, and up to 30% can be saved in energy costs compared to traditional denim processes. Advanced Denim technology received the prestigious 2012 ICIS Innovation Award and Innovation with Best Environmental Benefit Award.
 
Visitors to InDIGO can look forward to prototypes and garment collections featuring the latest developments of Advanced Denim (Booth #32):
- Latest “illustration collection” showing “blue ideas come true”
The newest garments in the Advanced Denim collection illustrate how the approach supports designers’ creativity and ideas with the right combination of dyestuffs and effects. Colors, wash-downs, fabrics, etc. can be played together by those innovative denim brands and professionals constantly in search for eco-advanced denim solutions that help them stay true to their values.
 
- “Soft colors” made easy with new Optisul C
Colors other than blue have been tricky to achieve in the past. Archroma’s original Diresul RDT dyes offered a first solution to this issue. At InDIGO, Archroma will show denim manufacturers how they now can expand their color horizons with a new range of six dyes especially designed to produce soft denim colors in continuous dyeing processes: Optisul C dyes.
 
These affinity-free sulfide-free dyes, suitable for GOTS and bluesign1 approval, can be combined with each other at low concentrations to obtain collections of jeans in a wide array of easily achievable and reproducible soft colors - all while using the most sustainable Advanced Denim technology.
