RAPID DYE FST Offers Flexible Consistent Dyeing
New enzymatic product RAPID DYE FST —
available from Raleigh, N.C.-based Hydrotex USA Inc. and the company’s international division,
Guatemala-based Consolidated Labs International LLC — allows dyers to operate in a pH range of 3 to
11 and in temperatures up to 185ºF, resulting in improved consistency and efficiency, and increased
capacity without adding machinery. The system, which rids fabric of oils, pectins and waxes, also
eliminates prebleaching on many shades, as well as prescouring or other pretreatments.
Rapid Dye FST is added at the start of the dye cycle. It can be used on 100-percent cotton
and polyester, polyester/cotton blends and nylon.
