BASF to present products for leather industry at FIMEC
Mar '08
From April 8 through 11, 2008 the 32nd International Fair of Leather, Chemicals, Components and Accessories, Equipment and Machinery for Footwear and Tanneries (FIMEC) will be taking place in Novo Hamburgo, Brazil. As in previous years BASF will present products for the leather industry.

This year the company is focusing on automotive leather and new developments. Specifically with the requirements of the leather industry in South America in mind, a new finishing concept has been developed that allows the customer more flexibility with fewer products. The range comprises resins, fillers, topcoats and compact products.

The new concept was based on a wide-ranging market analysis. “It is only with new ideas and an outstanding price-to-performance ratio that we are able to capture the market,” says Adriano Magalhaes, who is responsible for BASF's South American leather business. “The system offers our customers more flexibility in production and more opportunities for varying their articles.”

In the automotive leather sector, the company is presenting an extensive range based on its global expertise over many years. BASF's own experts from Europe have supported their South American colleagues with the latest developments and trends.

This year, apart from the extensive range of proven products for the entire process, the company is presenting some innovative products and processes. Highlights include the new Lipoderm Liquor E-X range, Basyntan EH-IS, and Lepton Binder LB-GU, which was developed specifically for the South American market.
