The Dow Chemical Company Launches ECOFAST Textile Treatment
The Dow Chemical Company is a part of the DowDupont Holding Company (DWDP), a business that is focused on agriculture, materials science and specialty product sectors that will lead their respective industries through productive, science-based innovation to meet the needs of customers and help solve global challenges.
This week at the American Association of Textile Chemist and Colorists (AATCC), The Dow Chemical Company launched ECOFAST Pure Sustainable Textile Treatment. The technology in this treatment allows for unique and more vibrant colors on natural textiles and greatly improves the efficient use of resources during the dyeing process. With the new technology, fluorescents are now available for use on cotton. The treatment allows the uptake of reactive, direct, and acid dyes on natural fibers and fabrics. ECOFAST Pure also improves the color quality of a product, so that the color will last longer.
“Dow has leveraged over a century of material science knowledge to help address the performance and sustainability gaps in the textile industry. By pretreating textiles with ECOFAST Pure, manufacturers can deliver longer lasting, new generation colors on natural textiles while simultaneously reducing water, dye and energy use.” – Esma Talu, market manager for Dow
