Imogo, the latest company to join TMAS (the Swedish Textile Machinery Association), has unveiled a Dye-Max spray dyeing technology that uses 90 per cent less fresh water, wastewater, energy and chemicals in comparison to the conventional jet dyeing systems.
The development was launched in a roundtable on spray application technologies at ITA 2020.
The event consisted of a round table discussion on `Sustainable Finishing Methods in Textile Finishing’, which discussed the new spray application technologies for the dyeing and finishing sector.
The technology features an extremely low liquor ratio of 0.3-0.8 litres per kilo of fabric that assists in reducing the usage of fresh water, wastewater, energy and chemicals almost by 90 per cent.
The use of spray application technology is a perfect example of how new technologies can lead to a more sustainable production.
The dyeing is done by replacing water-intensive processes with the highly precise and controlled application of dyes and chemicals as vapour.
