MILAN - Avient Corporation will highlight its latest portfolio of colorants and functional additives for spin-dyeing, dyes, chemicals and finishes for the mass colouring and modification of synthetic fibres at next month's ITMA exhibition.
This includes sustainable solutions that can enable recycling, support human health and safety, reduce energy use, and offer eco-conscious alternatives to traditional methods.
Avient’s solutions for spin-dyeing include a wide range of colorants to achieve high-quality dyeing of extruded fibres. The colorants, provided as concentrate pellets, are added to virgin or recycled polymers during yarn manufacturing as a one-in-one manufacturing/dyeing process.
At the show, Avient will feature Remafin Fiber Colorants for spin-dyeing polypropylene fibres, filaments, and nonwovens, along with Renol Fiber Colorants for polyester and polyamide (nylon) fibres and filaments.
These include black colorants developed for the coloration of polyamide and polyester yarns with specific undertones or where ultraviolet (UV) protection may be required. High black pigment loadings are also available to offer an efficient coloration package with deeper black options for higher-end textile applications such as automotive upholstery.
Avient’s portfolio of Cesa Fiber Additives, which can help enhance performance and improve the processing of extruded fibres, will also be on display. These additives include concentrates for UV stabilization, flame retardancy, antimicrobial effectiveness, antistatic performance, oxidation protection, water repellency, processing aids for recycled fibres, and more. Also, including safe and sustainable offerings, these fibre additives can help fulfill technical and regulatory requirements.
In addition to its colorant and additive solutions, Avient will also exhibit its MagnaColours ITO range of textile dyes, chemicals, and functional finishes. MagnaColours is one of eight brands under Avient Specialty Inks, along with Union Ink, Rutland, Wilflex, Zodiac, QCM, Printop, and Avient Specialty Inks, that also provides water-based inks for screen printing.
The MagnaColours ITO range can offer optimized textile performance to meet strict industry compliance standards through a wide range of UV treatments, fire retardants, dyes, chemicals, and other treatments.
