DyStar adds two modules to Cadira® processes
Posted October 14, 2020
SINGAPORE – DyStar, a leading specialty chemical company with a heritage of more than a century in product development and innovation, announced the recent launch of Cadira® Polyamide and Polyester / Cellulosic Exhaust.
With the two additions, DyStar currently offers 11 Cadira® modules in total to support the supply chain with complete sustainable solutions from manufacturing to production and beyond.
“DyStar is delighted to add Cadira® Polyamide and Cadira Polyester/Cellulosic Exhaust to our current modules,” said Fanny Vermandel, vice president, Global Marketing Coloration of DyStar. “With these additions, brands and retailers, manufacturers and production houses can look onto these options to further optimize their production processes. DyStar strongly believes that its evolving innovations support and shape the supply chain towards a greener and cleaner production environment.”
Cadira Polyamide is an environmentally friendly scour-dyeing process using DyStar’s Telon® and Isolan® dyes and selected Sera® products for Polyamide, Polyamide blends and recycled Polyamide.
Compared to the conventional process that requires three separate baths, pretreament, dyeing and a modified aftertreatment can now be completed in the same bath, which in turn reduce water, process time and energy consumption considerably. Trial results observed up to 20% less electricity consumed, up to 30% less water consumed, up to 25% less steam consumed, and a reduction of up to 30% of the dyeing time.
Cadira® Polyester/Cellulosic Exhaust
The Cadira Polyester/Cellulosic Exhaust module offers process optimization options and product offers for exhaust processing of polyester/cellulosic blends to reduce consumption of water, energy and reduce the output of greenhouse gas emission, as well as wastewater quantities and effluent load.
Recommended DyStar’s products for environmentally friendly exhaust processing of polyester/cellulosic blends include Dianix®, Levafix®, Remazol®, Indanthren®, Sirius® dyes and Sera® auxiliaries are suggested for dyeing and aftertreatment.
