Huntsman obtains court order against Kiri Dyes

Jun '09
The Textile Effects division of Huntsman Corporation announced it has obtained an order from the High Court of Mumbai against Kiri Dyes & Chemicals Ltd, a manufacturer of reactive dyes in India, for infringing a patent belonging to Huntsman.

In his ex-parte order dated May 7, 2009, Judge A. P. Deshpande prohibits Kiri from marketing or selling Reactive Super Black G that violates Huntsman's patent on Huntsman's NOVACRON Super Black G dye, pending a full hearing. Huntsman's patent was duly registered with the Indian Patent Office in 2008 for a true innovation for producing deep black shades.

Kiri's counterfeit Reactive Super Black G product had been found at several textile mills in Asian countries, causing significant commercial damage to Huntsman's Textile Effects division. Samples of the infringing products were collected and analyzed by independent laboratories to substantiate the alleged patent infringement.Huntsman is fully committed to protecting its intellectual property rights in all countries and will continue its efforts to ensure that any infringements are legally pursued.

The court order sets an important precedent in India and encourages innovative companies like Huntsman to continue investing a significant portion of their turnover in research and development of new products that contribute to improving the sustainability of textiles through better fastness properties, higher durability and functionality.

Huntsman Textile Effects is the leading global provider of high-quality dyes and chemicals to the textile and related industries, manufacturing a broad range of dye and chemical products that enhance the color of finished textiles and improve performance characteristics, such as wrinkle resistance, lasting freshness and the ability to repel water and stains. The business currently serves over 4500 customers located in 80 countries. The Textile Effects division is currently relocating its global headquarters to Singapore.
