Huntsman expands LANASET dyes line for brighter PA fabrics

Jun '14
Huntsman Textile Effects has extended its market-leading LANASET range of dyes to deliver additional bright shades for woven and knitted polyamide (PA) fabrics. These new dyes will help textile mills meet rising demand for cost-effective PA fabrics with high light-fastness and exceptional wetfastness in a broad range of bright fashion shades. 
 
Tailor-made for polyamide fabrics, the cutting-edge LANASET PA dyes offer excellent trichromy with perfect tone-on-tone build-up and very high flexibility for shade matching. Fully compatible with the original LANASET dyes, the extended LANASET PA range has been designed to offer easy dye selection, broad shade coverage and flexibility. Very deep shades are easy to achieve and PA microfiber dyeing is simple, economic and efficient, with minimal effluent pollution. 
 
With high light-fastness properties and outstanding wetfastness, LANASET PA is ideal for high-performance outdoor wear and sportswear, including wind breakers, skiwear and mountaineering clothing, as well as swimwear and lingerie. 
 
These dyes provide excellent wetfastness, in most cases, without the need for a fixation step, making them extremely suitable for laminated fabrics. Preserving the integrity of lamination, which can be hampered by conventional fixing agents, the LANASET PA dyes also exhibit excellent fastness to chlorinated water, avoiding the need for an additional chlorine fastness improver. These therefore reduce cost and the risk of shade change and tannin migration. 
 
“Long recognized as the leading supplier of dyes for PA/EL materials, Huntsman Textile Effects has now customized its LANASET range for woven PA fabrics. Huntsman Textile Effects continues to listen to and work closely with the world’s textile mills as we develop innovative new chemistries that meet their needs and the demands of end-user customers around the world,” said Jay Naidu, Global Vice President, Strategic Marketing and Planning of Huntsman Textile Effects. 
 
The economical LANASETPA dyes complement the existing LANASET range of dyes for polyamide/elastane (PA/EL) blends, including microfibers, and the high-performance ERIOFAST dyes.
