Huntsman Textile Effects said it has extended its range of high-performance Terasil dyes to now provide economical and reliable exhaust dyeing of polyester, polyester/cotton, microfibre and elastane blends.

According to Huntsman, the new Terasil TC disperse dyes allow mills to improve plant efficiency and productivity with right-first-time performance and excellent shade reproducibility.

“Demand for polyester is outpacing other fibres, with some industry reports suggesting a growth rate of more than 5 per cent year-on-year for the next five years,” Huntsman said.

The cutting-edge Terasil TC range was developed to help mills meet this demand in an economically and environmentally sustainable way.

These dyes exhibit very good application properties and are highly compatible, with a high standard of leveling performance and very good reproducibility.

They provide minimum sensitivity to reduction, good fastness to dry heat, good pH stability, good coverage of barriness and minimum staining on adjacent cotton fibre.

“These properties help mills improve efficiency and productivity to minimize rejections and achieve a higher return on investment,” the dyes producer explained.

The new Terasil range comprises a complete set of intelligent mixes for dyeing medium to dark shades, with six colours currently available like yellow, orange, rubine red, blue, turquoise and black.

The dyes fulfill Oeko-Tex 100 requirements, are bluesign-certified, and satisfy the Restricted Substances List (RSL) requirements of the major brands and the ZDHC Group.

“The economical Terasil TC range has been engineered to deliver optimal fastness and reliable operating performance at competitive cost,” global marketing manager, Lee Howarth said.

He added, “Huntsman Textile Effects will work closely with mills to help them optimise their processes and maximise productivity with Terasil TC.”

The Terasil range also includes Terasil W/WW for the high-end active wear and sportswear market and Teratop for demanding automotive applications.

Huntsman Textile Effects has operations in more than 90 countries and manufacturing facilities in China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Mexico and Thailand. (AR)
