Germany-based DyStar Textilfarben GmbH & Co. Deutschland KG has added Brilliant Red CA to its
Levafix® CA dye range. The metal and adsorbable organic halides (AOX)-free dye can be used alone
for a brilliant red shade. When the new dye is used in combination with Levafix Orange CA and
Levafix Scarlet CA, the combination produces clear and bright pastel shades. According to the
company, the dye exhibits lightfastness even in the presence of alkaline or oxidative detergent
residues, especially in bright to medium shades; and offers high washfastness.
