Specialty chemicals producer, Huntsman Textile Effects said it has debuted the ‘eCool70’ concept to make it possible for mills to achieve a range of brilliant shades while using less water and energy.

In a statement, Huntsman said the eCool70 will help mills achieve better environmental performance, lower processing costs and enhanced productivity.

The concept is made up of Avitera Brilliant Yellow SE, Novacron Brilliant Blue EC-B and Brilliant Turquoise EC-GN.

According to Huntsman, the new concept has been developed to provide brands and mills to produce the vivid fashion-forward colours of the Caribbean like brilliant yellow, green, turquoise and blue.

“Dyes for this specific shade segment have traditionally had low fixation rates, leading to moderate wash off, limited build up and bad reproducibility, which raises processing costs,” Huntsman said.

“In contrast, the new eCool70 concept offers a sustainable and high-performance solution with an attractive total process cost,” it added.

The eCool70 dyes are powered by Huntsman’s Avitera SE technology and deliver exceptional leveling and outstanding wash-off and fastness, as well as operational excellence for trouble-free production.

eCool70 helps mills lower their energy consumption and costs by allowing dyeing and washing-off to take place at just 70°C, which is significantly lower than the 90°C that is necessary with conventional hot dyes.

“The wash-off cycle is also considerably reduced, which results in lower overall water consumption and shorter processing time to enhance productivity,” the specialty chemicals producer explained.

The greenish cast Novacron Brilliant Blue EC-B, significantly lowers amount of turquoise used in recipes to promote easier wash-off and also helps increase lab-to-lab, lab-to-bulk and bulk-to-bulk reproducibility.

“eCool70 extends the Avitera SE range to help mills overcome challenges and operate in a way that is both environmentally and economically sustainable,” said Dhirendra Gautam, global marketing director.

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