Dye and Raw Material Prices are Rising—Can Digital Color Measurement Help Offset the Costs?

How do you reduce manufacturing costs amidst rising dye and chemical prices? Purchasing more efficient dyes might seem like the answer at first—until you go through several dye formulation rounds to get an approval. That process alone can cancel out any potential savings.


That’s because lab dips are expensive and can take up valuable time and resources when approached subjectively. But what if the textile industry overcame its skepticism toward digital color measurement and management? The cost savings—not to mention the time savings and quality improvements—could be dramatic.


In an article for Just-Style, Datacolor’s Todd Lee weighs in on the untapped potential of digital color management and why its adoption could be the key to alleviating the pressure from rising raw material and dye costs.
