dytru® fiber is a revolutionary polyester fiber that uses advanced textile technology to deliver increased dyeing capacity at a lower processing cost. It requires fewer resources to dye fabric containing dytru® polyester fiber and lessens the environmental impact.
dytru® fiber: The Sustainable Polyester
Dytru® Fiber Delivers
Lower Dye Temperature
dytru® fiber dyes at 99°C as compared to traditional polyester at 130°C. This translates to shorter dye cycles, increased capacity and decreased energy costs.
Accelerated Dye Uptake
The fiber design enables faster dye molecule penetration through the fiber wall, resulting in significantly reduced dwell time.
Excellent Colorfastness & Pilling Properties
Fabric containing dytru® polyester fiber is repeatedly rated 4.0 to 5.0 in 2A colorfastness testing. dytru® fiber also delivers exceptional pilling performance ratings in ASTM D5312 or D4970 testing.
dytru® fiber requires 10 to 50 percent less dyestuffs to achieve shade standard. Achieve more, spend less.
In lighter shades, dytru® fiber eliminates the need for reductive clearing after the polyester dye cycle.
Shorter Dye Cycle
Polyester dwell time is reduced to 20 minutes with dytru® fiber, versus 40 minutes for traditional polyester.
We created dytru® fiber, a patented polyester fiber with unique chemistry, to address two industry challenges: rising dyeing costs and shrinking dye-house capacity. dytru® fiber offers a more efficient, more sustainable and lower cost method to dye polyester and polyester cotton blended fabrics, while still achieving the desired fabric performance.
