The Foron® S-WF range of dyes continues to expand and the color spectrum broadens to include three new shades-Turquoise for bright greens that can match cotton standards, Vermillion for bright reds and Atlantic Blue, a greenish blue dye as a metamerism control element.
Chlorine-resistant optical brightener, such as Hostalux® ACK for polyacrilic fibers.
Solusoft® SIH, a new hydrophilic silicone micro-emulsion which supplies a super-soft handle. It is suitable for all types of fibers.
Solusoft® SE1.ID liquid is hydrophilic nano-silicone softener for polyester. It creates limited thermo-migration during blending.
Ceralube® PHD liq c, a state-of-art multifunctional product, can be used as softener for fluorocarbon treated fabrics and tear strength improver. It can also improve the sewability.
