Ultrasonic Plant Dyeing
IndiDye® utilizes a revolutionary patented dyeing technology that combines natural, beautiful colors and dyes with an innovative ultrasonic fibre dyeing process. Dyeing is implemented at fibre level before the mélange yarns are spun. Dye-tanks are filled with batches of fibre together with liquid natural dyestuff and exposed to ultrasonic pressure waves that infuse the dyes into the pores of the fibre. This is what gives the unique IndiDye® color fastness results never before achieved with natural plant dyes, without adding chemical mordants, metals or salts. It’s all natural.
The IndiDye® dyeing technology is applicable to natural, cellulosic and synthetic fibres. As it is a fibre dyeing technology, different fibres can be blended into the yarn during the mélange spinning process to achieve specific technical properties.
By eliminating wastewater in the dyeing process, water consumption is significantly reduced. Through lower dyeing temperatures and shorter dyeing times, IndiDye® also offers measurable improved efficiency in energy and emissions.
– With no hazardous chemicals and a low environmental impact, IndiDye® is truly eco-smart dyeing technology.
