The Archroma experts present at the exhibition will introduce for the first time to audiences in India Fadex AS New, a new 'super UV protector' to make automotive and transportation textiles more resistant to light, Foron SP-WF, a range of high-performance disperse dyes for polyester sportswear, and its ground-breaking innovation, Appretan NTR, a water-based textile coating binder that rallies renewable natural ingredients for applications such as tea bags and coffee filters or capsules.
The solution systems and innovations presented by Archroma have all been selected for their compliance with 'The Archroma Way: safe, efficient, enhanced, it’s our nature'. The approach finds its origin in Archroma's deep belief that it is possible to make the textile industry sustainable. At Techtextil India, visitors will be able to discover 10 systems developed along the principles of The Archroma Way to help them create value in their textile applications and markets.
Archroma will present two systems ideally suited to textile manufacturers serving the automotive & transportation market. They will be Light Fast Car, a system designed to keep fabric colours deep, vibrant and matched day after day and Safe Seats, a halogen-free flame retardant coating system for synthetic leather upholstery.
For Outdoor and activewear, Archroma will feature 4 systems. The first is Color Vibe, a system for nylon sportswear to maintain colour vibrancy, time after time, wash after wash. The second system is Fast Sport, a colouration system for polyester knitted sportswear, providing the best fastness in the shortest possible time with a reduced environmental footprint. The third system is Odor Control, a system for improved material longevity, freshness and wearing comfort due to the lasting dual-action technology of Sanitized Odoractiv 10. Odour-causing bacteria cannot adhere to the textile surface and bad smells are trapped and neutralised; and permastink cannot build-up in sportswear. The fourth system is Wick Stop, an anti-wicking system to keep one's feet drier in the wet, with maximum mesh sneaker durability.
For workwear and uniforms, Archroma will present 4 systems – Power Cotton, Smooth As Iron, Odor Control and Tough Camo.
Power Cotton is a system for comfortable cotton fabrics with more than 5 times higher abrasion resistance. Smooth As Iron, is a non-iron finishing system that keeps fabric smooth, soft and strong, especially on collars and cuffs. Tough Camo, is a non-infrared reflective pigment printing system for military wear, with high durability and dramatically reduced water consumption.
Lastly for nonwoven, Archroma will present Filter It Clean, a formaldehyde-free and Apeo-free bonding system that makes nonwovens strong and safe even when wet.
"We are continuously developing innovations and solution systems that help increase productivity and create value for textile manufacturers in India," said Anjani Prasad, head of sales, India, Archroma. "We do that with in mind the planet and its inhabitants, in line with the objectives of 'The Archroma way': Safe, efficient, enhanced. Because it’s our nature!"
