Huntsman Textile Effects Unveils Lanasol® Black Chrome-Free Dyes For Wool

Switzerland-based textile chemicals manufacturer Huntsman Textile Effects has introduced Lanasol®
Black chrome-free reactive dyes that produce a range of black shades on wool and other animal
fibers. Huntsman’s Miralan® LTD low-temperature-dyeing auxiliary is used with the Lanasol Black
dyes to aid application. According to the company, the Lanasol dyeing process is significantly
shortened while providing good reproducibility, minimizes damage to the fibers, and is more
cost-effective than processes using chrome.

Dyes in the Lanasol Black range include Black CE, Black CE-PV, Deep Black CE-R and Deep Black
