Dianix® AM Formula One – the new dye concept for Colour Confidence in the automotive industry
Keywords: Dyes, Colours technology, Automotive industry
With its new Dianix AM Formula One concept DyStar meets the demanding standards set by the automotive industry for top-quality, long-lasting textiles for interior trims. Benefits of this new generation of dyes include top light fastness at high temperatures without any change of shade and the flexibility to produce dyeings without metamerism. This ensures that the shade of the fabric matches the colour of the plastic and leather, not only in the showroom, but also under varying light sources.
Stefan Brandt, Technical Marketing Automotive Dyes, explains: “With Dianix AM Formula One, customers know that they are on the safe side: they can meet high fastness specifications with virtually no risk of a change of shade”. Dianix AM Formula One is an example of DyStar’s new Color Confidence marketing concept. The dyes conform with the new solar test set by General Motors of the US and also stand up well to established light fastness and other tests stipulated by international automotive producers. The Dianix AM Formula One concept comprises four main dyes that can be combined to cover more than 90 percent of popular shades plus five supplementary dyes.
