Ciba Specialty Chemicals Launches New Products

Ciba Specialty Chemicals, High Point, N.C., has launched three new products Ciba® Univadine® OD, Cibafix® DGF and Zonyl® UAR.Univadine OD is an oligomer dispersant that can be used to dye polyester under high- temperature conditions on jets, beams and package-dyeing machines. The dispersant prevents the formation of oligomer crystals on the surface of the fiber, which, if formed, can cause white marks or frosting on the yarn.A new dye fixative for nylon fabrics and nylon/spandex blends, Cibafix DGF has unique anionic chemistry that binds with the fiber to improve washfastness and reduce cold-water bleed. Ciba claims this chemical will also impart an extra layer of protection against chlorine and stains.Zonyl UAR is a fabric protector designed to offer oil, water and soil repellency on a variety of fabric types. It is especially recommended for use on upholstery and automotive fabrics.
