Germany-based DyStar has added Procion® Brilliant Red XL+ to its Procion XL+ range of hot-exhaust
reactive dyes. According to the company, the new dye, which produces brilliant reds and scarlets;
has good build-up, excellent leveling properties and a good fastness profile; and helps reduce
recipe costs. Brilliant Red can be combined with Procion Yellow XL+ and Procion Dark Blue XL+ to
dye trichromatic shades. Because the dye is fast to washing in oxidative conditions, DyStar claims
it stands up well under repeated washing using modern detergents.
