Criteria for ecolabels and regulation are evolving on a continuous basis, inevitably becoming more stringent over time.
Some dyes which have traditionally been adopted for paper colouration have been discontinued, because they do not fulfil anymore the necessary ecological requirements.

Cromatos, in a proactive effort to operate in an increasingly sustainable industry and maintain a broad products range, has embarked on a program involving the reformulation of liquid dyes, to remove or replace harmful chemicals.

The result is our “Cartacrom Liq. ECO” range, composed of liquid anionic direct dyes for paper application: mentioned products are composed of strictly limited contents of alkanolamines and therefore comply with requirements of the most common European regulations and with Eco-labels.
