  • significant energy savings
  • classified in ZDHC gateway (from level 1)
  • greenofchange® approved

1. Avol Lime: the safe neutralizer

Presented in preview at the Amsterdam Kingpins Show, Avol Lime is the most advanced neutralizer in terms of sustainability. Providing the real alternative to hydroxylamine and sodium metabisul te (typically the most used product in the process of potassium permanganate neutralization), Avol Lime is very safe for workers’ health.

It is also classi ed at level 1 in the ZDHC gateway, and carries a series of crucial advantages compared to a standard neutralization process:

  • removes more effectively permanganate and its residues from garments, up to 40%

  • is active at room temperature

2. Avol Oxy White: the real alternative to potassium permanganate

Among top of the range Garmon’s sustainable solutions, Avol Oxy White represents a challenge to the usage of permanganate in garment discoloration. The innovative bleaching agent designed to obtain localized effects on denim is an ecologically advanced product, featuring numerous benefits:

  • free from manganese compounds, heavy metals or halogenated derivatives stunning 
  • quality and perfect used look on the final product
  • safe to handle
  • easy to apply
  • no tumble drying or curing required

The whole white&green package is perfectly compliant with the requirements of greenofchange® platform.

greenofchange®: the new hangtag to inform consumers in a transparent way

greenofchange® is Garmon platform that offers a solid and innovative approach to the problem of sustainability in the fashion industry. To respect the greenofchange® guidelines, garments must be treated with certified Garmon chemicals, through a finishing process based on the efficient use of resources. One of the latests novelties of the platform presented at the Kingpins Show is the special hangtag including a QR code, that can be featured on all garments whose finishing process complies with greenofchange® requirements. After scanning the code, we are provided precise information on the amount of natural resources that were saved in the finishing of that single garment, along with all information related to the safety of the chemical compound with respect to the environment, workers and end-consumers.
