WATER SOLUBLE DYES

Idacol’s water-soluble dyes are available in a variety of shades to satisfy every need. They come in three different forms...

Free Flowing Powders impart greater shade vibrancy in the dry form, and hence find excellent application in drink mixes.

Granular is an evolved dye form that reduces dust in the plant.

Liquids are preferred for their ability to reduce color dust. Precisely manufactured to desired dye strength, they offer pack size flexibility – from 1 litre jars to 2000 litre totes.
