Archroma will present system solutions ideally suited to textile manufacturers serving the automotive & transportation market, such as the recent:

Archroma’s experts will also present a new package solution especially developed for synthetic microfiber suede material, combining our Dorospers® K & A dyes for high light fastness, Pekoflam® for flame retardancy and Nuva® N for the repellence and release of oil, soil and water.
OUTDOOR & ACTIVE WEAR
Archroma helps the outdoor & active wear sector to bring ideas to life with exciting color effects, with technology to make gear more resistant to extreme weather conditions from heatwaves to rain pours, with thermo-control and protection solutions, as well as with finishes for softness and comfort.
Archroma has developed new system solutions designed to add value in outdoor & active wear applications:
- Color Vibe, a system for nylon sportswear to maintain color vibrancy, time after time, wash after wash; based on super-fast metal-free* Nylosan® S high concentration range of acid dyes;

- The EarthColors®, a range of dyes made from non-edible natural waste from the agricultural and herbal industry, or more recently
