Archroma recently launched at the ITMA exhibition its new Foron SP-WF, a range of high wet-fast disperse dyes for sportswear and active wear applications. These are especially suited for the coloration of polyester fibers and microfibers, in exhaustion application. The new product is at the core of Archroma's Fast Sport, a coloration system for polyester knitted sportswear, providing the best fastness in the shortest possible time with a reduced environmental footprint.

The Foron SP-WF range, which includes primary and ternary color grades, has been developed to fulfil the high colour wet fastness and performance requirements of sportswear manufacturers and brands. The core ternary colour grades enable deep shades at lower dyeing temperatures on sensitive polyester/elastane fabrics without causing excessive fiber damage, saving energy resources and meeting the high fastness demand of leading brand companies. When using these dyes, manufacturers can in many cases significantly reduce their consumption of time, energy, chemical, and water, as well as their CO2 emissions.
