Organic Dyes and Pigments LLC, a long time AATCC Corporate Member with significant experience in the Textile Industry as a trusted supplier of Dyes, Pigments and Chemicals, will once again be assuming a very active role at the AATCC Textile Discovery Summit – September 12-14 at the Hyatt Regency, Greenville, SC

AATCC’s Textile Discovery Summit is an annual event dedicated to providing a platform for the textile community to learn and interact together.

This year’s focus is Supporting Sustainability Through Innovation.

This multi-day event features educational presentations from industry leaders and academic experts, interactive networking breakouts and receptions, a showroom for innovative products and processes, resources, and information on the latest in textiles, and more! You can review all the information regarding this Summit HERE.


Once again, Organic Dyes and Pigments LLC (ORCO) is heavily involved with the Summit:

Barry Brady, ORCO’s Southeast Region Manager, is the Textile Discovery Summit Chairperson and will be presenting Opening and Closing remarks, as well as daily updates.

ORCO, a Royal Exhibitor, will be prominently positioned in the Exhibitor Summit Showroom. Come by and visit us before and after the technical sessions, and during the reception to learn more about what’s new in the world of color and chemicals!

ORCO will be featuring its newest product – Orco RepelTM FF – a Fluorine-Free, PFAS-Free water and aqueous stain repellent.  The unique features of this product allow for a more comfortable, breathable fabric while still maintaining great water repellency.  Utilization of this finish may allow for an increase in the performance of a particular fabric, as well as an increase in the life of the fabric.  And best of all, it’s fluorine-free!

ORCO is also featuring their growing non-staining polymeric dye product line, pigments available as aqueous or solvent dispersions, and the OrcoAcid product line of versatile acid dyes.

Most importantly, ORCO is there to discuss YOUR needs, applications and technical requirements for dyes, pigments and chemicals.
