These shades are on flat fully drawn yarn
Please note that the color tongues
are divided into 3 sections:
flat yarn to demonstrate the POY shade
same shade in friction textured
same shade in taslan (air textured)
The idea of this online shade card is to give
you a first idea about the standard shades. With this tool you may choose the nearest color
tongue as an initial color tongue sample. The color may be different from PC to PC because of the monitor settings (color warmth, color depth, lightness and contrast).
The assets of polyester filament yarn are undisputed throughout the world: its tenacity, crease resistance, good
thermo plasticity for all texturizing processes, a pleasant
hand and excellent blending properties with animal and vegetable staple fibres
DECORA is Setila’s international registered trademark for
spun-dyed textile Polyester filament yarns.
Jet- or spin dyeing of polyester filament is a speciality of Setila AG. High quality dyestuffs are added to the spinning mass. This results in a number of distinct practical
Interesting price/performance ratio plus an
environment friendly manufacturing process.
The additional cost of spun-dyed raw material is significantly lower than the expenditure for subsequent piece-dyeing. Dependent on colour, fabrics made from DECORA are 6 to 10% less expensive than piece-dyed goods. The piece-dyeing of small lots involving high energy and water consumption, often with carrier additives, is not needed with spun-dyed yarns.
DECORA - a direct and genuine contribution to environmental protection.
The advantages of spin-dyeing are the:
-> Depth of the colour
-> An unusually wide palette of bright colours
This was what man-made fibres were unable to give textile designers,
interior designers and artists until now: woven fabrics, warp knitted, circular
knitted and other fabrics with the excellent properties of rawwhite polyester
yarns, but with far more opportunities for colours and colour accuracy.
-> Spun-dyed DECORA guarantees maximum colour evenness from lot to lot
permitting the production of extremely large batches in a uniform colour.
In fact, up to 60'000 meters of fabric in the very same shade from the first to
the last meter. This is only possible with spin-dyeing. Additionally, a much
more precise shade continuity from lot to lot. Colour and spinning mass can
be precisely adjusted for accurately predictable results.
The advantages in
making up are obvious:
-> No more complaints about colour differences - smooth punctual processing
throughout the entire production process right up to the consumer.
-> DECORA has excellent color fastness values
Maximum light fastness results are achieved. Maximum values are recorded
for washing, for water and for perspiration.
-> Unlimited texturizing possibilities, both in air-jet and torsion technology
(PU friction disks).
Enormous thermo plasticity proves itself especially in texturizing, no matter
what process - in fact, only spin-dyeing made the production of coloured
HE (single heater or FT) yarns possible.
-> In every finished form, spun-dyed DECORA yarns retain their properties
with an absolute minimum of deviations.
DECORA has a comprehensive range of yarn counts to cater for every possible area of application.
Apart from various textured yarns, a wide range of yarn counts is available from dtex 30 to 500, either bright or semidull in various cross-sections. An
enormous range of applications is possible: twisting, texturizing, weaving, knitting, double plush-Raschel and of course warp knitting for car upholstery, car
head liners, side panels, rear parcel shelves, upholstery fabrics and furnishing fabrics.
The number of applications is immense and most of them have been examined by Setila AG specialists. Why not get in
touch with us? The leading role played by Setila AG in the field of spun-dyed polyester underlines the company’s depth of experience. Samplings can be arranged for every new end use.
