PRODUCTS FOR FINISHING
Innovative and tailor-made solutions
Textiles are a constant part of our daily lives. From the clothes that we wear to the bedsheets that we sleep in, textiles are used in a wide variety of areas that have completely different functional performances that need to be met. However, functionality alone is not enough to meet the requirements of millions of end-users. Aesthetics, design, color, and ecology also need to be taken into account for life at home, at work, or leisure in order to be more secure, efficient, and healthy, as well as a little bit more beautiful.
Archroma's broad portfolio of innovative, effect-promoting finishing solutions is highly respected within the textile sector for its focus on safety, ecology, and the benefits to manufacturing efficiency.
