Chem Service Inc Azodye & Dye Standards
Azodyes are colourants that are used in the textile, leather, paper and hair industries. Azodyes brilliant colours are what make them so useful as colourants for these products. Their availability and cost effectiveness has only added to their popularity with world-wide manufacturers.
the problem with using these chemicals in such products mostly occurs when they start to break down. Some of these dyes break down into carcinogenic aromatic amines, thus a health hazard is created ehen they come un physical contact with the skin. The European Union has banned a small number of these dyes in products that come into skin contact. These dyes have one or more nitrogen-nitrogen double bonds.
