Basel, March 20, 2009 – Huntsman Textile Effects will exhibit at the InterDye Fair in Shanghai from April 8 to 10, 2009. Under the slogan ‘Reach further - Be innovative!’ , we will be demonstrating sustainable innovations which enable our customers to save time, money and other resources. The main elements will be focused on three crucial processes where Huntsman is already a global leader: Pretreatment, Dyeing and Finishing.

For Pretreatment, we will be presenting our revolutionary new GENTLE POWER BLEACH™, a novel bleaching system based on breakthrough enzyme innovation.

In Dyeing, we will demonstrate the latest in a succession of sustainable developments with our state of the art NOVACRON® reactive dyes.  Also, we will be presenting our most recent innovative products for specialized synthetics and wool.

For Finishing, we will present two key themes: High IQ ® - the quality assurance scheme for effects with real lasting performance and the new DuPont Capstone™ range - a broad portfolio of sustainable, performance driven fluorine-efficient repellent and soil release finishes.
