Dec '09
The India International Leather Fair (IILF) will be held from January 31st to February 3rd 2010 at the Trade Center in Chennai, Tamil Nadu Province, India. BASF will be located in Hall 2 Booth C 60, C 61, C 78 and C 79.

BASF is focusing on innovative and environment-friendly products and processes. Therefore, one of the highlights at the fair is the expansion of BASF's Basyntan product range of formaldehyd-free syntans, the new ecology friendly soft polymers in the Relugan series and new solvent-optimized finishing products that offer improved consumer safety and high performance for leather applications. Included in our line-up of eco-friendly finishing products for the fair is Lepton Aquatop TG, a top coat that provides a natural leather touch and transparent look. BASF's innovative Lugafast Colorlock Technology will also be presented at the booth, with reactive dyes for leather that make a new fastness profile available which prevents the color from fading, staining and migrating. Our water-based auxiliary, Astacin Top LP, allows for high gloss, transparency and an elegant smooth surface on leather.

Andrea Ceretta, head of BASF's leather business in South Asia, emphasized the growing importance of sustainability and the environment: “Our products and processes focus on environmentally friendly and economical solutions which ensure high-quality ecological products. It is gratifying that environmental protection and sustainable development are more important than ever. We are aware of our responsibility in this regard and have positioned ourselves accordingly.”

A team made up of specialists from our South Asian competence center will be at BASF's booth to advice customers and inform them about our innovative new developments and our range of established, high-quality products.

Astacin Top LP: For water based patent leather
Astacin Top LP is the solution from BASF to achieve high gloss, transparency and an elegant smooth surface on leather. This new waterbased auxiliary for leather finishing is recommended for top coats of aqueous finishes and presents the closest alternative to solvent based patent finishing. Astacin Top LP stands for first-rate leveling characteristics as well as high scratch resistance and good flexing properties. Astacin Top LP is recommended for all types of leather with a high gloss, especially for water-based patent leather.

Lepton Aquatop TG: Transparent look with a natural touch
The application of Lepton® Aquatop TG in top coats allows for a simple and effective way to obtain a transparent high-gloss finish. Particularly glossy surfaces can be obtained by applying it together with a casein binder from BASF's Luron product line, for instance making the finish very transparent. The good wet rub fastness values can be further improved by adding silicone waxes and crosslinkers. Overall, the product offers an improved price-performance ratio. Lepton Aquatop TG can be applied to all leathers but is especially recommended for shoe uppers,upholstery and garment leather.
