DyStar's new pigment preparation Imperon Blue HF-T sets new quality standards on the world market, giving customers top shade stability and thus, outstanding color confidence on outdoor textiles and furnishing fabrics. Imperon Blue HF-T has far better fastness profile than the conventional pigment preparations based on C.I. Pigment Blue 15 types, including better fastness to dry cleaning. It is also resistant to strong oxidants and free radicals, so textiles dyed and printed with this new product do not fade, even if they are exposed to chlorinated cleaning agents or ozone radicals generated by intense sunlight. Markus Dorer, DyStar Marketing Printing, comments: “Our new Imperon Blue HF-T is the solution customers have been waiting for: it retains its shade for a long time, even in extreme conditions.” What is more, Imperon Blue HF-T has the same high standards of light and weather fastness, thermostability and conformance to eco standards such as Oekotex Standard 100 as the other products in the Imperon HF range.
