Matsui Introduces Binder For Indigo-Dyed Denim

Gardena, Calif.-based Matsui
International Co. Inc. has introduced Binder 801/Printgen 801 — a two-component binder for
discharging indigo-dyed denim.

According to the company, previous products use sodium hypochlorite to discharge dyes from
the fabric, sometimes causing stability problems that lead to varied effectiveness of the discharge
process. Matsui reports the new binder is more stable and performs well in various curing
procedures, resulting in excellent discharged product.
