Orcocil™ Disperse Dyes for Acetate

Orcocil™ dyes are a specially selected group of disperse dyes characterized as low-energy disperse type. These exhibit excellent leveling characteristics and build-up at low temperatures on acetate, nylon, and differential dyeing of nylon. These are also used as an alternative to acid dyes on nylon offering excellent leveling properties for barre coverage with limited wash fastness in high concentrations.

Actual dye samples must be evaluated in a laboratory on medium to be dyed in production for accurate shade and physical property results. Shades shown on print material and computer monitors are for general reference only as they are inherently inaccurate due to calibration variations and technical limitations of monitors and printers.
