Safer Textiles’ dyeing department makes the fabric a colorful reality. Our computerized dye lab can color match your fabrics, creating the desired shade sought by your clients.
The company utilizes 25+ modern computer dyeing machines (e.g., jets, soft flows, jigs, atmospheric beams), with capabilities reaching up to 4,000 pounds per lot. Safer Textiles has the ability to dye different kinds of fabrics under pressure or through atmospheric procedures using disperse, reactive, and numerous other dyes, thus providing clients with a variety of possibilities and customizable solutions.
Keeping with the highest standards in the industry, Safer Textiles utilizes a Datacolor 800 Spectrophotometer to measure color consistency in our dye lot productions. This state of the art measurement system enables Safer Textiles to transfer QTX files directly to customers and leverage historical data from past lots to ensure color consistency.
Safer Textiles’ coating line complements the company’s dyeing and finishing capabilities. Through a knife blade process, a water-based polyurethane is applied to wovens of various weights, which are then cured on a 90-foot, 10-zone thermal range in order to ensure that our products meet or exceed all required specifications. Additional finishes such as durable water repellents and flame retardants can be added during this process, which can be applied to both prints and solids. As a result, Safer Textiles can manage all of its clients’ needs under one roof while offering the highest quality products available in the industry.
