Archorma, Jeanologia team up to launch sustainable dyeing process


Specialty chemicals company Archroma and finishing technology firm Jeanologia have teamed up to launch Pad-Ox G2 Cold, a sustainable dyeing process that reduces water usage drastically. As per Sourcing Journal, the Pad-Ox dyeing process shortens the dyeing process by combining the oxidation and fixation steps. This enables it to reduce water, cotton and energy use.

Archroma uses Diresul range of low-sulfide sulfur dyes and plant-based EarthColors dyes. Some of these dyes have been awarded with Cradle-to-Cradle Product Innovation Institute’s Platinum Level Material Health Certification.

Jeanologia G2 dynamic technology compounds the benefits of Pad-Ox by using ozone to prepare fabric for finishing treatments including laser. Developed in 2008, the technology works with Pad-Ox at room temperature to improve fabric fastness while significantly reducing water and chemical usage. The resulting garments are softer and have greater color durability.
