According to Jeff Brown, Executive Vice President, INVISTA Performance Materials division, This investment is utilizing a combination of patented and proprietary technology with flexibility such as solution dyeing
which enables increased innovation opportunities around fiber properties and performance and creates a strong platform for our future growth.
is environmentally friendly--by combining spinning and coloring into one step, it offers energy efficiency and doesn't use water.
By running small lots for specialty applications, offering quick turnaround, and solution dyeing
to match virtually any color, Martin Color-Fi continues to serve customers that need quality products, quick response and environmentally responsible solutions.
In fact, according to the experts in this field, solution dyeing
should be a requirement for all fabrics likely to receive heavy use in any eldercare environment.
In tests against natural fibers, our survey concluded that it is softer, costs less, is easier to maintain and holds coloration better," said Fletcher, explaining that the because the fiber, which is extruded, is about 1/5 the size of a human hair, it doesn't fuzz or peel, and solution dyeing
gives the color permanency.

More than 60 colors can now be achieved through solution dyeing of fibers, and patterns run the gamut from traditional florals to contemporary geometrics.
Executives also say solution dyeing practically guarantees slower fading, longer durability and easier cleaning.
Executives say technical limitations in the solution dyeing
of fibers narrowed fashion possibilities to a field of yellow, green and white solids and stripes.
