MeliodermŽ Dyes - COVERING ALL OF YOUR DYEING NEEDS
MeliodermŽ dyes are anionic dyestuffs suitable for all types of leather. This range comprises different dyeing behaviors and chemical groups.


Many are substantive, providing deep shades in low affinity leathers; all have a high level of balanced fastness properties.
Next to MeliodermŽ dyes which are the most common shades used in tanneries Clariant provides the MeliodermŽ HF range identifying exceptional fastness performance. And our MeliodermŽ CAT dyes, a cationic black dyestuff, was specially developed to achieve deep black shades as well as high levels of light fastness.


Thanks to their excellent combinability and compatibility, all our MeliodermŽ dyes enable our customers to match most of the normal shades produced in tanneries, as well as the more difficult tones and shades needed for the most demanding of articles produced using bovine and ovine leathers.
