Our products offer exceptional color and cleanliness for fiber and textile applications.
For the fiber and textile industries, we offer a portfolio of specialty carbons that deliver exceptional color performance and physical cleanliness enabling processors to maintain consistent, reliable production. Our specialty carbons can help reduce the occurrence of undesirable features of dyes for synthetic fiber applications, including inconsistent fiber characteristics, low high color fastness and negative environmental impacts. In contrast, our specialty carbons enable customers to produce synthetic fibers with highly reproducible characteristics, strong light fastness, minimal colorant migration, and a lower environmental impact.
Our products are suitable for use with various polymers used in fiber and textile applications, including polyester, nylon and polypropylene. We also offer specific products for fine-denier polyester fiber applications where filterability and spinnability are critical.
We offer products that can meet the performance needs for filament fiber and staple fiber. Relative product performance is illustrated below.
