PolyOne Corp. announces that it continues to advance its fiber colorant technology, ColorMatrix™ Fiber Colorant Solutions, which helps textile manufacturers, converters and brands improve sustainability efforts, operational efficiencies and market response rates.
The company’s clorant solutions combine colorants and specialized melt-spinning equipment to provide an adaptive, innovative system for coloring polyester fiber. This allows textile manufacturers to increase production speeds, flexibility and process control. It also eliminates the need for water and wastewater treatment, up to 10 liters per kilogram of fiber, commonly required with aqueous dyeing processes.
Recent commercial projects for this technology include textiles for high-performance sports apparel, automobiles, home furnishings and carpeting. At its upcoming Investor Day on May 10, PolyOne plans to present additional details about fiber colorant innovation as one of several high-growth technology for 2018 and beyond.
