In recent years garment dyeing has conquered a firm position in the textile industry and garment finishing. CHT makes an important contribution to this segment with its special dye range BEZAKTIV FX and creative finishing processes.
The advantages of garment dyeing enable the market, thus the brands and retailers, to quickly launch new articles beyond classic seasonal collections. Dye shades, styles, looks as well as trends can be combined and quickly implemented just like the customer desires and demands this. The batch size can also be highly varied, which is an enormous advantage to classic manufacture from a dyed fabric. The typical life style characteristics of garment dyeing such as the soft handle, the usually very good shrinkage values or if desired the slight wash look are fixed features of many current casual and sportswear product lines. Requirements on wet and light fastness levels as well as on sustainability must equally be fulfilled by the corresponding product selection and process.
Advantages of garment dyeing for the market:
Garment dyeing does of course bear some disadvantages which should not go unmentioned:

Most garment dyeings are realised in the classic way, thus without strong effects. The following two categories can be distinguished:
Slight wash look on selvedges and seams:
Clean look without wash optics:
Apart from the above mentioned classic looks garment finishing also offers a wide range of other possibilities to meet fashion requirements:
Looking at this great number of different finishes it is of course interesting to see whether there are suitable dye ranges to realise them. The BEZAKTIV FX range is a versatile tool box offering the suitable tool for any requirement. With the classification into 14 dye selections it is easy to select the optimal combination for each requirement from the 34 BEZAKTIV FX types in total.
The full article, provided below to download, takes a closer look on the four main application fields:
1. Classic pieces with a wash fast clean look and highest sustainability
2. Pieces with the classic garment dye look, thus a slight high-low on selvedges and seams
3. Old-Dye process for pieces with a strong wash out look on the surfaces and along the seams
4. Dischargeable dye shares for subsequent bleaching processes by means of spray gun or Random-Wash or Acid-Wash, etc.
A clear trend in garment dyeing is sustainability. It is also obvious that very fast dyes are mostly demanded. Direct, pigment and acid and metal complex dyes are increasingly substituted by selected reactive dyes. Reactive dyes offer vast advantages both for their application as well as for the use of the completed garment.
