Polyester is a synthetic fiber widely used in industrial applications due to its abrasion & stretch resistance, durability, chemical resistance, and resilience.  The most common polyester, polyethylene terephthalate(PET), is used extensively on all types of apparel  including sportswear and hi-tech light-weight microfiber garments which provide improved breathability, water resistence, durability, and comfort.  Home furnishings such as carpet, drapes, upholstery, and pillow fiber-fill are large consumers of polyester fiber and fabric.  Many automotive fabrics and wovens such as headliners, car seat covers, and safety belts can be dyed using Orcocilacron™ high-lightfast disperse dyes.  Organic Dyes and Pigments offers Orcocilacron™ medium and high-energy disperse dyes for polyester, providing a wide shade and physical property range.   OrcoSperse™ pigment dispersions are also used for printing on polyester fabric.  For a complete listing of shades, physical properties, and application procedures for these product lines, please click here.

Orcocilacron™ Disperse Dyes for Polyester

Orcocilacron™ dyes are a group of disperse dyes characterized as medium and high-energy disperse types for the dyeing of polyester atmospherically with carrier, under high temperature/pressure dyeing, and continuous/thermosol dyeing.  These are offered in both powder and liquid/paste forms. Unlike the lower energy Orcocil™disperse dyes, these tend to have a larger molecular size, lower volatility, and hence, better sublimation properties.

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.
