Dyes & Detergents

Sanray partners with you to test and analyse detergents, colourants, dyes and pigment ingredients and their applications such as liquid inks, textiles, packaging, food and pharmaceutical products, and implements chemical management solutions in your supply chain network to ensure safety and compliance of chemical formulations and raw chemicals before production.

The importance of detergents, dyes and colourants come with their versatile applications in the manufacturing of various consumer and industrial products, including textiles, apparel, footwear, toys, cosmetics, medical devices, medicines, industrial and domestic detergents, and packaging. They can provide specific finishes, prevent mould growth, abate product degradation and bring vibrant colour to a product and so on.

The challenge in manufacturing these products is ensuring highest quality of the products and displaying optimal performance while assessing product safety and presence of potentially harmful chemicals at each step of the supply chain.

To meet chemical restrictions faced during selection of dyes and chemical ingredients in products and their sustainability, the risk to health and the environment has to be minimized. This includes keeping products free of hazardous or restricted substances such as heavy metals formaldehyde, phthalates or azo colourants and their breakdown products.

With Sanray as your testing, inspection and certification partner, we can help you to implement chemical management solutions covering your entire supply chain including toxicology risk assessment of ingredients, guidance on labelling, screening for restricted substances, and regulatory consulting to ensure that your organisation meets compliance goals. Our expertise enables you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes.

Our experienced scientists can support your product development through formulation analysis and de-formulation studies. We can screen for potential allergens or active substances such as surfactants and help you to address chemical contamination or microbiological safety through a wide range of laboratory services. Interaction studies between products and substrates such as skin, fabrics, hair, packaging and hard surfaces help to progress performance studies. Our testing services help to evaluate how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards

Textiles, Apparel and Footwear

Dyes and additives are used during manufacturing of textiles, apparel and footwear, as well as to form components of products to impart specific finishes, prevent mould growth and product degradation, or enhance colour. Certain dyes and substances have been found to pose hazards to human health and environmental safety. As a result, rules and regulations have been enacted around the world to promote environmental safety, as well as protect human health. Partner with us to implement chemical management solution in your supply chain network, including testing for restricted substances such as azo colorants that break down to restricted amines, disperse dyes, flame retardants, formaldehyde, fungicides such as dimethyl fumarate (DMF), pesticides, phthalates and heavy metals.

Bringing quality to life, our expertise is delivered consistently with precision, pace and passion, enabling you to power ahead safely and ensuring your products and processes reach optimal quality and efficiency.
