CHEMANTRENE FOR DYEING

Achitex Minerva Group has a range of dyestuffs, in liquid and powder form, nominated CHEMANTRENE, suitable for dyeing cellulosic fibres.

They are high fastness water-insoluble dyes which by alkaline reduction (caustic soda - sodium hydrosulfite) become soluble fiber derivatives, getting back to the insoluble form after the oxidation phase.

ADVANTAGES

•  High color rendering
•  Very stable dispersion
•  High degree of filtration
•  High light fastness
•  High resistance to washing
•  Resistance to post bleaching baths

Chemantrene dyes (vat) in powder, suitable for dyeing cellulosic fibers. They are characterized by their high solidity.
