SUSTAINABLE PRINTING AND DYEING
The dyes do not completely penetrate the fibers, thus creating uneven coloration and lots of white show-through on the surface of the fabric.
After treatment in a water dye-bath, the fibers show complete dye penetration. However, colorfastness is low to moderate.
Using our proprietary dyes, penetration is deeper. Colors are richer and colorfastness is better. Penetration control can be used to dye or print both sides of the fabric with different colors, prints, or a combination of both.
Through proprietary software, AirDye enables color accuracy from color development, to sampling to bulk production across various basecloths.
AirDye colors and prints can be developed within days and sampling can be dyed or printed with full color accuracy quickly and efficiently. Back and forth color approvals that create delays in production can be avoided, thus streamlining the entire development to bulk leadtime.
AirDye is so advanced that it not only colors the yarn, but also thousands of filaments in each yarn, yielding rich and brilliant colors. Penetration is complete.
Using AirDye can save up to 95% of the water, 86% of the energy, and 84% of the greenhouse gases as compared to conventional print and dye methods. On a single garment, the water savings alone can be as much as 170 liters. And with no large production minimums and accurate color matching, the speed and material efficiency of AirDye eliminates significant waste in the lifecycle of garment production.
With AirDye, you can dye or print both sides of a fabric with contrasting colors and patterns, giving a unique appearance that cannot be achieved by conventional methods.
The AirDye production system enables production from a few meters without any compromise on quality. There are no fixed order increments or minimums, so you can order exactly the amount you need, eliminating the need to order unnecessary fabric.
