    What is Solution-Dyed Technology (Dope Dyed or Waterless dyed)

    For most organic and inorganic fibers, the batch-dyeing process takes place in the last stages, which often yields negative environmental and social impacts. Experienced in solution-dyed technology, Ri-Thai reverses this process by first mixing the pigment with base resin to create a color masterbatch before the monofilament yarn is made. At Ri-Thai, sample batches are tested before other base resins are mixed in for mass production to ensure top quality. It is also worth noting that solution-dyed technology can be used in the production of a wide range of fiber products and not just monofilaments, outpacing traditional production methods.
