Huntsman Textile Effects has unveiled UNIVADINE E3-3D, next-generation diffusion accelerant to help mills get high-performance dyeing of polyester, microfibres, and blends in an environment-friendly way that complies with industry sustainability standards. The company is a provider of high quality dyes, chemicals, and digital inks for the textile industry.

The diffusion accelerant is low-odour, free of benzyl benzoate, and other hazardous substances. Part of Huntsman’s range of innovative dyEvolution dyeing auxiliaries, it uses Huntsman’s active diffusion technology to enable high-speed dyeing with best-in-class levelling, retarding, and migration properties, Huntsman said in a press release.

“UNIVADINE E3-3D diffusion accelerant delivers across three key dimensions, diffusion, levelling, and migration, for exceptional performance and environmental and economic sustainability. Its environmental credentials offer mills greater processing flexibility and an optimum price-performance ratio. We expect this latest offering to change the way that the industry dyes polyester and blends while meeting stringent environmental standards,” Kerim Oner, global marketing manager for dyeing auxiliaries at Huntsman Textile Effects said.

UNIVADINE E3-3D diffusion accelerant has a high affinity to polyester, causing the fibre to swell and increasing the diffusion of the disperse dye, even at lower temperatures. Multiple levelling mechanisms then slow down the exhaustion rate to ensure safe, defect-free dyeing. Finally, as the dye bath heats up, the product’s strong support for disperse dye migration ensures the dye molecules are evenly absorbed.

As a result of this cutting-edge diffusion technology, UNIVADINE E3-3D diffusion accelerant can be used to successfully dye polyester fibres in tightly wound or high-density yarn/beam dyeing and is suitable for jet applications without the need for anti-foaming products. Reducing exposure to high heat, its active diffusion technology minimises the potential to damage the elastane in polyester-elastane blends and provides for on-tone dyeing of microfibers. The superior migration support of UNIVADINE E3-3D diffusion accelerant also increases reproducibility, allowing mills to dispense with additional levelling agents.

Polyester, microfibers, and blends treated with UNIVADINE E3-3D diffusion accelerant comply with the requirements of bluesign, in addition to being suitable for Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex and an approved input dyeing auxiliary chemical for GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified textile products.
