Solution dye is an eco-friendly dyeing process that saves lots of water, chemicals and energy. In the process, the dyeing is carried out by adding the color pigments to the spinning solution prior to the fabric weaving. As a result, the pigments become an integral part of the fiber, offering superb color fastness.
Compared to traditional dyeing, Solution dye uses 75% less water, 67% less chemicals and 39% less energy.
Adding the color pigments to the spinning solution in a high-pressure process means that less chemicals are needed to make sure the color “sticks” to the yarn. As a result, the Solution dye process reduces the use of harmful chemicals with 67% compared to traditional dyeing.
Since Solution dye includes less water and chemicals, the process also uses less energy to color the yarn fibers. In fact, it uses 39% less energy than the traditional dyeing process.
