ECOFAST™ Pure

Sustainable Fabric Treatment

How can ECOFAST™ Pure create apparel to be made, sold and worn with integrity?

We can help bring sustainable fashion to life—without sacrificing color and quality. The answer is ECOFAST™ Pure. This award-winning technology helps make a bold difference as a cationic cotton chemistry used before the fabric dyeing process. ECOFAST™ Pure doesn’t have the unpleasant odor of other cationic pretreatments and can help deliver up to:

 

An icon of a beaker with a plant growing out of the top


90% less chemicals

Including dyes, salt, and other additives

An icon of a rain drop of water


50% less water
With fewer rinses

An icon of a grid of fabric coming together


50% less dye
With improved uptake

An icon of a lightning bolt with arrows making a circle around it


40% less energy
With room-temperature dyeing

Like you, we believe sustainability shouldn't have to come at the sacrifice of color or quality. ECOFAST™ Pure is compatible with popular direct and reactive dyes and delivers comparable or enhanced colorfastness. We also offer a global technical network with local support to supervise, customize and optimize production processes with our ECOFAST™ product.

Keeping our planet top of mind with a more sustainable dyeing method.

Wherever you are in the value chain, you can’t deny the impact that global fashion has on our world – our culture, economy, and planet. While this leading industry provides billions of us with colorful apparel, textile dyeing is the second largest cause of water pollution in the world1. Dyeing also consumes 5 trillion liters of water each year2, which is nearly enough to supply all humanity with drinking water.

By reducing the water, chemicals, dye, and energy required to color cotton textiles, we can help brands meet sustainability targets while also addressing climate change, water pollution and water scarcity.

ECOFAST™ Pure also meets the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme and Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL).
