TEXTILES

The study of textile chemistry begins with the knowledge of fibers – both natural and synthetic. Because synthetic fibers are such an important part of today’s textile business, textile chemical are the need of the hour. Textile chemistry includes the application of the principles of surface chemistry to cleaning processes and modifications such as dyeing and finishing. It encompasses organic chemistry in the synthesis and formulation of the products used in these processes.

CRISTOL™ is a well established brand in the manufacture and export of eco-friendly specialty performance chemicals for textile processing including surfactants, specialty chemicals and textile auxiliary chemicals. We have a wide range of pretreatment chemicals, dyeing agents, printing chemicals, finishing chemicals, spinning additives, xanthans & fibre / yarn production chemicals.
