The All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE) will be held September 1-3, 2010 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. BASF will be located in Hall W2 in Booth D 11.

Optimized products and processes are the focus of BASF at this year's fair. Highlights are presentations of the expansion of the formaldehyde-free Syntan range, the new soft polymers, and the next generation of water-repellent systems with products such as the eco-friendly Densodrin EP.

New, environmental-friendly finish products to be displayed at the fair include the Astacin Novomatt DM is an innovative, polyurethane-based product with intrinsic matting, which is free of inorganic (e.g. silica) or other matting generating additives. Furthermore the eco-friendly BASF product Astacin Finish PR is free of NMP and has an improved hydrolysis resistance.

Process optimization for water reduction in beamhouse and wet-end recipes will also be presented.

”Environmental awareness and sustainable development are more important than ever before. We are aware of our role and responsibility. Therefore our focus lies on eco products and optimized processes”, emphasizes Joachim Henkmann, head of BASF´s leather business in East Asia.

An international team of experts will be in attendance to advise customers and to inform them about our innovative new developments and our extensive range of established, high-quality products.

Astacin Finish PR is a soft, elastic polyurethane binder for use in base coats and color coats. It is recommended for all types of leather that require high levels of fastness and hydrolysis resistance, especially for automotive and upholstery leather and for athletic shoes.
