Acrylic  is a versatile fiber which feels like wool but is dry cleanable and easy to care for.  Its softness and light weight lends itself for use in fleece, circular knits, sweaters and socks.  Acrylic is also used for upholstery, blankets, floor coverings, and outdoor furniture.  Orcozine™ basic dyes provide a wide shade range and are easy to use for acrylic fabric or garments in exhaust dyeing.  OrcoSperse™ pigment dispersions are specially formulated for padding and printing of acrylic.

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.
