Garmon Chemicals has launched a new line of textile dyes offering significant advantages both in terms of sustainability and saving of resources when compared to reactive dyes.

The OVD dyes, launched at the recent Kingpins Show in Amsterdam, includes 22 direct dyes reaching what the company claims are “extraordinary colour effects”. They have “excellent” dischargeability, with the ability to achieve superior results without aesthetic compromise.

OVD dyes are used in the cationized dyeing processes on garments, where surface deposition of the colour on fabric is required.

The new proposal uses only five process steps instead of eight, on average, a lower quantity and higher performance of both dyes and auxiliaries, and allows for much easier corrections of final shades.

Also launched by Garmon at the Kingpins Show was an enhanced Stretch Care collection. In pre-launch stage since April, Elam Sense and Fortres Flex have entered their final stage.

Elam Sense is the softener for high-quality finishes on super and hyper stretch fabrics, completely aminoethyl-ethanolamine (AEEA) free. Fortres Flex is a dispersing agent that performs at its best even at low temperature.

“Garmon commitment is once again confirmed to be geared towards quality excellence,” says Donald Mulazzani, marketing and business development director of Garmon Chemicals. “The effort that the company dedicates to product innovation and constant research for eco-centric solutions is supported by the unmatched Garmon expertise in anticipating its customers’ needs.”
