Company News, News | June 20, 2024 | By:

Archroma®, a specialty chemicals company headquartered in Pratteln, Switzerland, announced the launch of Color Management+, a color design and development solution that helps textile and fashion brands and mills work together for improved sustainability.

Archroma Color Management+ incorporates the industry’s largest off-the-shelf color atlas selection, design tools and customized services for fast color selection and creation. It combines these with engineered color standards created with Archroma’s Super Systems+ for reduced environmental impact and consistent and accurate color reproduction.

“Selecting the perfect color is a vital part of the creation of textiles and fashion, but it is not simple. Beyond aesthetics and consumer appeal, today’s designers also have to consider fastness performance, eco-compliance, color consistency and resource efficiency,” says Chris Hipps, global head of Archroma Color Management+. “Archroma’s Color Management+ builds these considerations into engineered color standards and provides the recipes and references that colorists and technical specialists need to bring colors to life in economical and resource efficient bulk production.”

Within Color Management+, the Color Atlas by Archroma offers access to a collection of more than 5,700 unique colors for cotton, polyester and blends, both as a physical library and searchable online library. Designers also have the option to create custom colors. Achievability criteria are available for each color standard, whether in the Color Atlas or provided as an engineered color, at the selection phase. This includes information about the technical and economic feasibility of the selected color, along with a commitment to sustainability build on the foundation of the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) Level 3.

The solution is further supported Archroma’s One Way+ Impact Calculator and Sustainability Improvement Program and Safe Edge+ compliance-data platform.
