Today a whole series of different types of colorants are used to dye paper, which can be divided into a wide variety of dye classes Direct, Basic and Acid dyes. Waterside Colours provides a wide range of colorants suited to the customer’s needs and preferences.

Our different colorant series display very good exhaustion on cellulose containing substrates such as unbleached paper and paper-based packaging. They are known for their intense colour, brightness and cost effectiveness.
