REINACH – Archroma has told Ecotextile News that due to a higher than expected demand for its for ‘Denisol Pure Indigo 30’ it’s had to triple the planned production for this dye, with all the pre-reduced liquid indigo capacity at its Pakistan facility now earmarked for its manufacture.

The Swiss-based textile chemical specialist explains that shortly after the launch of its new denim indigo dye at Planet Textiles in Vancouver last year, it “encountered a high demand for the product on the market.” In part, this is due to aniline – an indigo precursor molecule –coming under increasing regulatory scrutiny and being restricted through retail and brands RSL and MRSLs.

Archroma says this new synthetic indigo liquid is ‘free from aniline’ at current analytical levels of detection.

“As more and more of the key export-oriented, sustainability-driven denim mills request for mill trials,” a spokesperson for Archroma told us, “we foresee that at the end of the third quarter of 2019, 100 per cent of our pre-reduced indigo production in Jamshoro, Pakistan will be dedicated to the production of Denisol Pure Indigo 30.”
