CLEVELAND, Tenn. — August 9, 2011 — Manufacturers Chemicals LLC has developed a new wet process aid
specifically for wool dyeing, EcoCare WL Extra.
According to Kevin Hrebenar, VP Research and Development, “the new product is a superior
wetting agent and scour for wool, but in addition levels acid, milling and premetalized dyes. The
new material gives a retarding effect but more importantly covers barre’. Compared to traditional
processes the BOD and COD can be reduced by as much as 65% and EcoCare WL Extra is made almost
entirely of renewable and sustainable materials.”
Manufacturers introduced the EcoCare line of wet process product for textiles in March of
this year with four products that were developed from renewable materials or otherwise offered
substantial environment improvement. The product line has grown to 9 products already and several
more are in initial trial phase.
Manufacturers Chemicals is a division of Synalloy Corporation.
