Americos Thermochromic Microcapsule


Introduction :
Dye is a substrate showing its colour by absorption & reflection of light; it is affected greatly by circumstances. Thermochromic dyes have a characteristic whereby the colour changes according to temperature. However, because the dye (coloring matter) is very sensitive to circumstances, some shield (protection) is needed. In our Chameleon range the shield is a microcapsule. The Thermochromic microcapsule is a thermochromic colorant especially protected by the microcapsule wall.

TRI-FUNCTIONAL

Amerisoft Trifunctional Colors (Cloudy Effect on Garment)

Introduction :
Americos Trifunctional Colors are specially designed for garment industry to get cloudy effect on garment. This effect resembles the tie & dye effect but the approach is totally different. In this technology, garments are first dyed with tri-functional colors in garment dyeing m/c. Then the dyed garments are tied with thread at different parts according to the design to be formed on garment. Then it is treated with Americos Deni XL solution (discharger) and subsequently with Americos Deni OX (neutralizer). Thus, this method opens unlimited doors for developing creative designs on garments. Using this technology, garment processors can achieve cloudy effect of more than two colors from one trifunctional color. It saves labor, water and energy involved in traditional process of tie & dye.

The whole process is divided in to four steps:
  • Dyeing of garment with Americos Trifunctional Colors
  • Tying the garment at different parts according to the design requirements
  • Discharging of dyed garments with Americos Deni XL
  • Neutralization of garment with Americos Deni OX
