Fibre processing

Find out more about our techologies for fibre processing.

We have complete solutions for improving productivity, consistency and aesthetics in wet processing of various substrates (cotton, regenerated cellulose, polyester, polyamide and spandex) as per substrate forms (fibre, yarn, knits and woven) and as per application machinery (exhaust & continuous). Each application range consists of a variety of products as per their functions/effects and features. Many of our products are Bluesign®, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and OEKO-TEX® compliant. This means that using Croda products can help work towards gaining the certification for these industry leading standards.
