Black at its Best! new chrome free dye range for wool
Jul '09
On target with our motto of sustainable innovation, Huntsman Textile Effects is pleased to present the new LANASOL Blacks range of chrome free dyes for wool and other fine animal fibers .

LANASOL Black dyes are applied by a simple and robust dyeing process which ensures excellent reproducibility and significantly shorter processing, making them more economical than chrome dyes.

Complementing the black dyes is MIRALAN LTD, the first low temperature dyeing auxiliary which facilitates the application of LANASOL Black dyes for deepest black shades at reduced temperature and shorter dyeing times with minimal fiber damage.
The frequently heard arguments that deep black shades are not achievable with metal free dyes are history.

LANASOL Blacks can and do produce the same or even deeper black shades than the mordant blacks. With a long history in the wool market, Huntsman Textile Effects produces a range of reactive dyes for wool with high fixation and satisfactory levelness that match and exceed the qualities of chrome dyes. These dyes further excel through their full compatibility with other dyes in the range for optimum levelness and shade reproducibility.

Four different blacks in the LANASOL range, Black CE, Black CE-PV, Deep Black CE-R, and Deep Black CE-2B cover the spectrum of shades, giving dyers the power and flexibility to make the right match for every requirement with the ideal fastness thereby rendering chrome dyes obsolete.

MIRALAN LTD is the innovative new auxiliary for the LANASOL® Blacks range. Using MIRALAN LTD has proven in industrial tests to help save both cost and time with enhanced performance of the dyes.
