High-performance textile manufacturer specialized in the sustainable development and production of innovative textiles and textile technologies, Schoeller Textil AG and Textilcolor, the auxiliary and dye specialist, have come together to develop Ecodye – a technology to be used in polyester dyeing.

According to Schoeller, the technology accelerates the dyeing process and contributes to cutting costs, while at the same time helping to preserve the environment with a low level of demand on resources. Moreover, this new technology is Bluesign® certified and is suitable for all textile forms, machines and substrates, as well as existing dye recipes.

Explaining the newly developed concept, Schoeller says the Ecodye allows eco-friendly and cost-saving dyeing for polyester yarns and piece goods. It shortens the heating phase, thus accelerating the process time by more than 30 per cent. At the same time it reduces energy consumption by 20 per cent and water requirement by 25 per cent as the goods can be cleaned in the cooling dye bath.

In addition, Ecodye improves the dyeing levelness in polyester textiles. Spots and dye agglomeration are almost completely avoided, and the precipitation on the goods that arises as a result of polyester oligomers are no longer evident. Ecodye provides good shade stability and avoids reproduction problems from batch to batch, thus reducing the rate of double staining and increasing the capacity utilization and productivity of the dyeing mill on a long-term basis.

Hans Kohn, COO of Schoeller Technologies AG, comments, “Ecodye is an auxiliary of the future. It requires not only great expertise in the development of the auxiliary concept but also in the textile application. We are pleased to have been able to develop this advanced product in successful partnership with Textilcolor.”
