ecodye – Swiss companies Schoeller and Textilcolor develop revolutionary polyester dyeing
Less time, less water, less energy – the new ecodye auxiliary concept allows eco-friendly and cost-saving dyeing processes for polyester yarns and piece goods. It shortens the heating phase, thus accelerating process time by more than 30 percent. At the same time, it reduces energy consumption by 20 percent and the water requirement by 25 percent, 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.
The new technology has been proven to provide an eco-friendly and cost-saving dyeing process. ecodye is bluesign®-certified and is suitable for all textile forms, machines and substrates, as well as existing dye recipes. It requires no additional investment or conversion. The potential savings for each application can be individually computed using a specially-developed calculation program.
You can meet Schoeller on Techtextil at booth B08 in hall 6.1 and Eschler Textil in hall 3.1 at booth E72. Furthermore Schoeller and Eschler Textil are partners of the project Digital Textile Micro Factory.
