The DyStar Group recently launched a new concept of their resource saving module – Cadira Reactive/Disperse Continuous, which is a modified pad-dry-thermosol-pad-steam dyeing process for open width polyester/cotton fabrics.
In contrast to the standard PDTPS process, Cadira Reactive/Disperse Continuous does not require a separate reduction clearing process, and thus saves more than 40% chemicals, water and energy. This effect is obtained by using a special dye choice of Dianix XF/XF2 and SF disperse dyes in combination with selected Levafix and Remazol reactive dyes and a modified steaming and wash-off process with Sera auxiliaries.
The Cadira concepts considerably reduce process costs, water, waste and energy consumption and machine utilization. Cadira supports brands & retailers and their production partners in their effort to save valuable resources and to reduce the carbon footprint of their textile goods.
Since the first Cadira module was developed in 2016, DyStar has launched Cadira concepts for various substrates and applications. So far, the following Cadira concepts are available: Cadira Polyester, Cadira Recycled Polyester, Cadira Vat, Cadira Reactive, Cadira Procion PX, Cadira Wool and Cadira Denim.
DyStar is continuing efforts to support the textile industry to reduce the environmental footprint.
