New specifications constantly require adjustment and innovation. New products, techniques and application systems will be presented for wet-end and finishing solutions.                       

Clariant continue to use the latest technology to provide chemicals that meet today’s requirements for ecological, innovative and aesthetically pleasing leathers, while giving the tanner maximum added value and process simplicity.

Solutions provided include:

Pre-tanning system Granofin F-60 allows the tanner to produce chrome-free leather with an even, tight grain, as per the latest needs of the market. Excellent aesthetics and physical performances are achieved.  

Tergotan PO-60 is a new generation of soft polymers for the wet-end; a true retanning agent with significant softening properties which allows a considerable reduction in the fatliquoring offer.

New Derminol products for vegetable imitations on chrome-tanned leather result in very nice articles for shoe upper and leather goods. 

Clariant as a market leader in specialty chemicals and in upgrading technologies, offers you complete made-to fit solutions that pay off. Finishing techniques for upgrading using Melio Aquabase, Melio Grounds systems among others, provide customers with solutions for low grade raw materials.  

A brand new development especially for soft leathers applications such as furniture or shoe upper nappas is the new topcoat system based on Aqualen Top DC-2050.A (dull) and Aqualen Top GC-2051.A (gloss), Aqualen Top LN.A (patent leather imitation). Furthermore, the long established Supronil HK-range has been extended by three new fashionable shades. 

Special techniques can also be achieved using Melio Ground UP which offers high filling and sealing pre-base that maintains the natural aspect of the leather.
