Fluorescent Whitening Agents (FWAs)

Fluorescent Whitening Agents (FWAs)

Optical brighteners transform UV light into visible short-wave light and thus increase the whiteness of textiles. The UVITEX® range of Fluorescent Whitening Agents (FWAs) for all substrates and application processes offers a complete range of neutral and shaded whiteners with the ability to create local shaded versions and tailor-made white.

Made up of high-affinity disulfonated stilbene derivatives for exhaust, semi-continuous and continuous whitening processes, they provide very high and bright white effects with white shade flexibility.
