Americhem, a globally recognised designer and manufacturer of custom colour masterbatch, functional additives, engineered compounds, and performance technologies, will display new innovative additives for the fibres industry at ITMA Asia + CITME 2018, in hall H2, booth C28. The tradeshow will be held in Shanghai, China from October 15-19, 2018.

The first leading technology exhibited will be Americhem’s masterbatch of deep dyeing for PET synthetic fibres, which uses dispersed dyes. This additive has significant advantages specifically for fine denier yarn such as PET/PA6 bicomponent fibre. These advantages include, but are not limited to: dyeing time reduced by 40 per cent, enables darker dyeing, dosing flexibility, reduction in effluent treatment costs, and imparts a soft feel, according to Americhem.

The second cutting edge product is a masterbatch of catonic dye for PET synthetic fibres, which replaces ECDP. This innovation provides huge benefits to RPET applications. Some benefits of this masterbatch are that it can be blended in bright, semi-dull, and full-dull PET, enables deeper and darker dyeing, environmentally friendly with complete dye bath exhaustion, and is supplied in crystalline form.

The third inventive development is a masterbatch of stain resistance for PA6 synthetic fibres that provides superior stain fighting performance, which is widely used in carpeting and apparel. Americhem will also be featuring its legacy technologies in antimicrobials and UV stabilisation, which are pillar additives in synthetic turf, automotive seating fabric, carpet, and textile industries.

“Americhem has always been on the cutting edge of technologies in the plastics industry, but as the company’s years of experience in the fibres/textiles segments grew, so did Americhem’s niche in this market. Now, Americhem’s R&D team is constantly testing and developing new innovations in the fibres industry on a global scale,” Stanley Teoh, vice president/ managing director of Asia Pacific, sales & marketing said.
