Eco-Friendly Quality Controls
Pioneering Sustainable Processes
Green Dyes and Finishes
Made to protect the planet
AKAS puts a high premium on green manufacturing. We ensure that our fabrics are produced with no harmful solvents or chemicals, and that our eco-friendly quality-controls are continuously met.
It doesn’t stop there.
AKAS is pioneering sustainable processes such as cold lamination for PUL using a special urethane-based adhesive with no solvents and minimal energy. Our commitment also extends to dyeing and high-performance finishes.
For example, we’re expert at using high-energy dyes for polyester fabric. There are no chemicals and minimal water used, and there’s a possibility of reusing the waste water as fertilizer. Another example: for antimicrobial finishing, we use only SILVADUR™ which has proprietary technology so no silver particles are released into the environment.
When dyeing cotton textiles, rather than notoriously water-heavy traditional methods, we implement the latest dyeing technology. Our iMaster H2O machines significantly reduce water and dye used in the cotton dyeing process, minimizing environmental impact.
Reducing our carbon footprint and producing safe, non-toxic fabrics are at the core of our business.
