For the traditional cotton dyeing, a good amount of unfixed dyes (up to 40%) remain in the bath.
It requires multiple rinses and the unfixed dyes and chemicals are released to the wastewater stream.
By contrast, for SaveDrop® Technology, at the end of dyeing up to 100% of dyes are absorbed on the cationic cotton. SaveDrop® Technology requires only one or two rinses after dyeing and the rinsed water can be used for the next batch of dyeing.
Traditional cotton dyeing requires a long dyeing time and multiple hot rinses to remove unfixed dyes
and chemicals after dyeing.
SaveDrop® Technology requires a shorter dyeing time and only one or two rinses after dyeing. The result is that SaveDrop® Technology helps saving up to 75% of energy involved in the all dyeing process.
For the traditional cotton dyeing, anionic dyes do not have good affinity to the cotton.
A large amount of salt (up to 50% on weight of cotton to be dyed) is added to the dyeing bath to
push the dyes to the cotton and soda ash or fixing agent is added to fix dyes on the cotton.
By contrast, for SaveDrop® Technology, the cationic cotton absorbs anionic dyes very well and it does not need salt and soda ash or dye fixing agents.
Cationic cotton absorbs anionic dyes almost completely so there is almost no dyes remain in
the dyeing bath after dyeing while the traditional cotton dyeing leaves up to 40% of unfixed
dyes in the bath, which is a very dark color in the water.
There is no tinctorial strength and brightness difference between SaveDrop®
Technology and traditional cotton dyeing.
SaveDrop® Technology allows to choose all colors and shades.
Thanks to SaveDrop® Technology, cationic cotton absorbs anionic dye faster and almost completely,
so the dyeing time is much faster and only one or two rinses required after dyeing.
For SaveDrop® Technology, the cationic cotton is blended with normal cotton to make yarn and fabric.
When the fabric is dyed, heather effect and special patterns are created on the fabric since the
dyes are absorbed by only cationic cotton. For apparel companies to sell garments with heather effect,
they need a large inventory with different colors. Depending on color demand, some color will end
up as unsold large inventory.
By contrast, with SaveDrop® Technology, apparel companies only need to carry undyed garments or roll goods made with cationic cotton and normal cotton.
For SaveDrop® Technology, apparel companies can dye the garments or fabrics quickly depending on consumers’ color demand.
SaveDrop® Technology eliminates pre-dyed large inventory. With less inventory, warehouse cost will be saved.
Garment dyeing and piece good dyeing for unlimited pattern design.
Unlimited fabric patterns can be developed by using yarns made with different amount of cationic cotton and normal cotton. The examples are heather effect, striped patterns, shade gradations and denim effect. SaveDrop® Technology can also be applied at retail setting where customers choose undyed clothes having different patterns and select their own colors.
The dyeing could be done at the store directly in front of customers.
