H2DENIM is a simple short process that does not need reduction nor oxidation. The dispersion is stable and homogeneous, something that cannot be achieved using indigo alone. It is then ready to be applied by an exhaustion process, using a proprietary fixing process. It is a simpler process, which allows to obtain, directly in the fabric or knitting, as in garment dye, a good equalization and at the same time the worn and aged effect, aimed for who looks for this kind of effects.
Dyeing is performed at 60ºC for 1 hour at neutral or weakly basic conditions, followed by 2 rinses of 10 minutes each, at a liquor ratio of 1:10, at room temperature, and then proceed to washing to wash-down the excess indigo.
Depending on intended wearing down desired and/or fastness requirements, an additional washing may be performed to remove excess indigo.
