Hundreds of the world’s leading dyes houses choose natific's Color Accreditation Program (CAP) to cut out the common process of lab dip submission and to achieve straight to production privileges. natific randomly selects a mill within the CAP program to feature with a short interview. We also take this opportunity to welcome new and returning clients.


LEARN ABOUT NICE DYEING'S BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS


The mill Nice Dyeing located in Dongguan, China, became a CAP member in 2009. Thanks to the CAP, Nice Dyeing don’t need to send physical color swatches to their CAP member customers Target and Lands´ End.
 
Let’s hear from the management at Nice Dyeing what more they experience as a member of the Color Accreditation Program.
 
   “Retailers have faith in our production
    after getting the certification from natific.”
    / Nice Dyeing, Dongguan, China

 
natific: What do you see as your biggest accomplishments as a CAP member?

Nice Dyeing: I would say that two things really stands out. The first is that our color quality can reach our customers expectation and the second is that our production line is well managed.
 
natific: Do you save time in the development of new colors as a CAP member?
Nice Dyeing: YES! Thanks to the CAP it’s much easier for us to dye the color closer to the standard, which saves a lot of time.

natific: Do you use the system ColorWarehouse internally to monitor production accuracy and precision?
Nice Dyeing: Yes, we compare the spectral data of all production dye lots for all customers. ColorWarehouse makes it easy to figure out which product lots that isn’t within tolerance compared to the customer’s standard.
 
natific: Digital color standards (qtx-files) are used within the CAP program, does this make life simpler for you?
Nice Dyeing: Yes it simplifies our process. With the digital color standard we don’t need to send physical lab dips to our CAP member customers.
 
natific: Have you made any changes in your production and lab dip sample handling?
Nice Dyeing: The CAP has learned us how important the surrounding condition is for a color and the impact it has on the shade of our products.
 
All of our production and lab dip samples are now well conditioned and the conditioned environment is strictly controlled according to the CAP recommendations. For example, our dye storage containers are kept at a room temperature of 21 degrees (+/- 2 degrees), which avoid condensation inside the containers.
 
natific: What three things would you like to share that you have learned through the CAP program?
Nice Dyeing: Spontaneously, I would say…. one, natific’s auditor advised us to carry out the reduction clean process more efficient. He told us the characteristics of sodium dithionite and gave us a modified way to do the reduction clean process.

And, let’s see… two, natific also provided us with a tool (below picture) to calculate the starting and feeding concentration, it’s an easy way to evaluate the change of shade after finishing.

As the third thing I would say that we learned that AATCC white calibration cannot be done every day. We need to do correction as it’s not a standard method for white calibration.





The picture shows a part of the tool that natific give to dye houses to calculate the starting and feeding concentration. The tool is made to calculate the amount of finishing agent (e.g. softener) when applying it on wet fabric. This way the mill can save an expensive drying passage.
 
natific: What is your advice to dye houses that are considering joining the CAP program?
Nice Dyeing: To join the program without hesitation!

ABOUT THE CAP PROGRAM

The CAP has evolved to be the most comprehensive color accreditation program globally. The program is designed to evaluate the maturity and capability of a mill, determining if a mill will be able to produce any given color to a specific tolerance.

It is intended to assess, educate and help mills move towards best practice through production analysis and expert recommendations.

The ColorWarehouse system used within the CAP program allows mills to analyze production data based on color, fabric and dyeing machine. ColorWarehouse provides mills, vendors and retailers/brands with insight into the mills daily production.
