DyStar, BASF Sign Joint R&D Agreement For Efficient Polyamide Dyeing Process

DyStar Textilfarben GmbH & Co. Deutschland KG, Frankfurt, and Germany-based BASF SE have signed a joint research and development (R&D) agreement to improve dyeing processes for textile polyamide fibers. Under the agreement, BASF is developing new fiber polymers with improved dye absorption as part of its Ultramid® product line; while DyStar has been developing its Telon® RN line of reactive dyes that it claims deliver brilliant, rich hues and offer high fastness on polyamide at washing temperatures of up to 95°C and over multiple high-temperature wash cycles.

“We are convinced that BASF’s experience in polymer development will have a very positive impact on the development and marketing of our range of Telon RN dyes,” said Steve Barron, head of strategic marketing, DyStar. “As a leading supplier of products and services for the entire textile industry, we are working with BASF to make a major contribution to quality improvement for retailers and brand-name suppliers.”
