HTE launches ALBATEX DBS, new leveling agent

Huntsman Textile Effects announces the launch of ALBATEX DBS, a new leveling agent designed to help dyers avoid common problems with impurities and metal ions in the dye bath for trouble free processing leading to higher efficiency and money savings.

The dyeing process is a highly complex one, and if all the components of the dye bath were free of impurities, most of the sources for quality problems in dyeing processes would be eliminated. However,each component of the dye bath is actually a potential source of impurities, and the dyer has to use suitable complexing and dispersing agents in the process in order to avoid issues caused by metals ions.

Huntsman has just introduced a new leveling agent that is designed to counteract precisely these issues. ALBATEX DBS is an excellent Dye Bath Softener which helps avoid problems arising from ions (Ca, Mg, Fe and Cu) that are usually present during dyeing. With excellent complexing and dispersing properties and high stability in a wide range of pH and temperature, without impairing light fastness & reproducibility (no demetallization), ALBATEX DBS assures trouble-free processes leading to higher efficiency and money savings.
