Stahl has opened a new Centre of Excellence in Parets del Vallès, Spain, together with customers, OEMs, brands from the apparel and home furnishing industry and other partners. The centre has state-of-the-art equipment for polymer research, performance coatings solutions for the apparel and home furnishing industry and leather chemicals technology.

“Our new Centre of Excellence is the place where our experts can work side-by-side with partners to share knowledge and showcase our latest future-proof solutions, innovations and technologies,” Vasco da Silva, local manager Spain, explains.

In Parets del Vallès Stahl shows that the best way to predict the future is to create it, together with partners. Huub van Beijeren, CEO of Stahl, says: “Innovation is part the company DNA. The opening of this Centre of Excellence is an excellent example of how we use knowledge and expertise to develop tailor-made, future-proof solutions. In this Centre of Excellence Stahl has invested in state-of-the-art equipment for polymer research, leather chemicals technology, as well as coatings solutions for the apparel and home furnishing industry like the next generation STAHL EVO range of DMF-free polyurethane-coatings.”

Meeting critical and specific demands
The applications and testing facilities on display enable Stahl to develop solutions that meet even the most critical and specific demands of performance, sustainability and style. Sustainability is a driving force behind Stahl’s product development strategy. For example Stahl provides bio- and water-based coating solutions for polymers. In order to help tanners to reduce their footprint, Stahl has a range of sustainable beamhouse and tanning systems, like Proviera - Probiotics for Leather, Stahl EasyWhite Tan and a full range of high performance leather dyes.

To meet and exceed the Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) goals by 2020, Stahl offers the Stahl Neo portfolio for leather finish. The complete portfolio enables tanners to produce the full range of leather articles while accelerating the elimination of restricted substances from the supply chain at the same time.

The new Centre of Excellence in Parets del Vallès is located at Stahl’s manufacturing site at the same location, about 20 kilometres from Barcelona. With its focus on more sustainable coatings technology for the home furnishing and apparel markets, Stahl believes that a wide range of partners and colleagues from the industry can learn everything about coatings and chemicals for synthetic surfaces and leather at this centre.
