Dye and chemical maker Huntsman Textile Effects has entered an agreement with Korean fabrics producer Daechun Co. Ltd. to streamline operations and train technical staff at its textile mill in Gyunggi Province. The partnership reinforces the mill’s growth as an eco-friendly export business and builds on its reputation as a sustainability leader in the global marketplace.
Daechun has already adopted Huntsman Textile Effects’s technologies to improve its efficiency at Gyunggi. These include the NOVACRON® P reactive inks for textile printing and the CLARITE® ONE all-in-one pretreatment for peroxide bleaching. The company will optimize its chemical management processes from pretreatment to finishing and set up a waste print paste system.
Huntsman Textile Effects will carry out an operational audit called PIP, on a need basis at Daechun’s facility and recommend ways for the mill to improve productivity and profitability. The Huntsman PIP has proven to be capable of reducing overall energy consumption while increasing output by up to 30 percent and improve right-first-time performance by up to 95 percent. Huntsman Textile Effects will also work closely with Daechun to support product development and testing programs at Huntsman’s laboratories.
