Novasol® VAT Dyes Redesigned For The Most Demanding End-uses Combined With All In One From Huntsman Textile Effects
Singapore, July 21, 2010 – Novasol® VAT dyes are well established as the standard setting range which delivers across the widest color spectrum. These dyes are exemplary in their durability under sometimes extreme conditions.
When the popular reactive dyes reach their limit, particularly with some specific highest performance requirements, Novasol® VAT dyes provide the solution. Novasol® dyes are built to last regardless of the wear and tear they are often subjected to as can be seen by all the end-use segments they serve. Furthermore, they are completely compatible with a whole range of effects from protective to retardants and repellants.
More than anything, color, effect, process and service is all available from one global provider, Huntsman Textile Effects. Huntsman does not only offer VAT dyes but supports a wide variety of end use segments in the textile industry such as military, protective wear, career apparel, toweling and business shirt with a complete palette of products, effects and services. Textile Effects designs the solution most appropriate to customers’ needs by taking available equipment and requirements into account.
Not least, standardization plays a key role in the manufacturing of VAT dyes. Huntsman has a dedicated modern standardization unit equipped with high performing wet mills controlled by the latest particle size measurement equipment. All incoming raw materials (crude dyes, dispersing agents, etc.) are tested and all finished goods are verified to comply with our stringent product specifications for trouble-free application of Novasol® VAT dyes at the dyeing mills.
