Huntsman Textiles unveils STABILON NPY protective agent
Huntsman Textile Effects, the leading global provider of high quality dyes and chemicals to the textile and related industries, has introduced the industry’s best-performing protective agent against phenolic yellowing named STABILON NPY. Huntsman Corporation is a publicly traded global manufacturer and marketer of differentiated and specialty chemicals.

The agent helps mills protect product quality and avoid costly recalls by ensuring that lingerie, swimwear, underwear, and other polyamide garments in whites and pale shades will not yellow during storage or transit.

Pale and full white polyamide fabrics are prone to unsightly yellowing when they come into contact with phenolic antioxidants, which are frequently encountered during textile processing and commonly present in packaging materials. STABILON NPY protective agents prevent such yellowing by blocking the free amino end-groups of polyamide fibres.

Lee Howarth, global marketing manager, Huntsman Textile Effects said, “With STABILON NPY protective agent, brands, retailers and mills now have an upgraded offering to conventional products in the market that prevent costly storage yellowing on high-performance polyamides. The new technology from Huntsman delivers superior protection at a previously unattainable cost-performance ratio, while also meeting stringent environmental standards.”

Designed to help mills enhance quality and profitability, STABILON NPY protective agents are easy to use and highly effective at low concentrations. It will not foam and is suitable for all exhaustion machines and processes, withstanding severe, high temperature processing conditions such as moulding. It delivers a silky-smooth handle and does not impair light fastness. STABILON NPY protective agents comply with the requirements of bluesign, the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Roadmap and the Restricted Substances Lists of the world’s most exacting global brands. Polyamide fabrics treated with STABILON NPY protective agents are suitable for Oeko-Tex Standard 100, earning the Confidence in Textiles label. (GK)
