Beyond Basic Black: Exploring the Design Possibilities of Omnimax Rubber Threads

The world of design thrives off pushing boundaries and defying expectations. Color, texture, and functionality play a huge role in bringing a designer’s vision to life. While known mostly for its elasticity, modern rubber threads are now diversified to meet various modern needs. Many rubber thread companies have renewed their formula and technique to create superior threads that are durable and able to retain colors for a longer time.

Coloring Rubber Threads

Dyeing is the process of diffusing and transferring dyes from an aqueous solution into the fibers. Traditional dyeing methods involve dipping fibers and/or fabrics into dyeing solutions multiple times to ensure colors can properly seep into the fibers. This is why most traditional dyeing methods have no way to explicitly determine the number of dyes used until the end of the dyeing process.

Meanwhile, modern dyeing methods tend to lean into using machines that allow monitoring technology that properly analyzes and controls the entire process. New technology has opened up a more sustainable and cost-effective way of dyeing fibers. This has helped reduce water consumption and the use of chemicals that can harm the surrounding environment. Pre-treatment of fibers, pressurized applications, and even pigment creation from microbes are great alternatives for a more sustainable dyeing process. Omnimax implements a thorough and consistent coloring procedure so that every rubber strand is saturated and can resist fading.

Sourcing good quality materials is also essential to producing superior rubber threads. Threads made from naturally sourced rubber are more likely to retain colors from their initial dye than synthetic ones. Natural rubber has less chemical resistance than synthetic rubber, allowing more dye absorption and creating a solid base that allows for additional dye layers later on. By using natural rubber, Omnimax can re-plant these rubber trees to ensure sustainable means of production.
