Colorants for Latex

In nature, latex is a milky fluid found in flowering plants; it can also be produced synthetically through the dispersion of polymer microparticles in an aqueous medium. Many products, such as household gloves or balloons, are made of natural and synthetic latex. Our latex pigment preparations are tested and meet strict specifications for the coloration of latex dipping goods, simultaneously fulfilling specific purity requirements in compliance with different international regulations. Thanks to our products’ excellent compatibility with latex, they provide many benefits, including enhanced product quality owing to very good migration fastness and finely dispersed pigments that do not cause embrittlement.

Colorants for Viscose

A type of rayon, viscose is a manufactured fiber produced from natural cellulose derived from wood pulp. Used in many different textile and non-woven applications, it’s pressed through finely perforated spinnerets and then coagulated in a bath of sulfuric acid. In dope dyeing, colorants are added to the viscose before the spinning process takes place.

Our flowable pigment preparations offer excellent stability, easy incorporation and dispersion in water-based systems, high tinting strength and transparency, excellent sedimentation behavior, longer filter lifecycles, and improved color yields.

Viscose Filament Yarn is applicable in the manufacture of silky, soft and smooth fabric for clothing. Viscose Staple Fibers are easily bendable for a wide range of applications, e.g. in apparels, home furnishings, dress materials, and woven & knitwear. Let us help you find the products that match your requirements!
