BASF to partake at India International Leather Fair with eco-products

24
Nov '08
The India International Leather Fair (IILF) will be held in the Trade Center in Chennai, Tamil Nadu province, India, from January 31st to February 3rd, 2009. This year the company is focusing on environment-friendly products and processes. Highlights are presentations of the new formaldehyde-free Syntan series, the new soft polymers, and the next generation of water-repellent systems with products such as Densodrin EP.

New, ecofriendly finish products to be presented at the fair include Lepton Aquatop TG, a top coat that provides a natural leather touch and a transparent look. Possibilities for reducing water consumption in the beamhouse and wet-end processes will also be presented.

Another key topic is the further development of the Fashionova concept, which was specially developed for the leather industry in South Asia. It consists of 25 carefully selected products for elaborating the entire spectrum of traditional and elegant fashion leathers. Also to be presented is the now complete color range of Lugafast reactive dyes: Lugafast Black AN, Brown BB, Brown BC, Red RR, Yellow GG and Blue.

“With all our products and processes, the focus is on eco friendliness and economy”, says Thomas Sattler, responsible for BASF's global leather business. “Our customers, also those in South Asia, expect and demand ecological products that meet their individual requirements. It is gratifying that environmental protection and sustainable development are becoming more and more important. We are aware of our responsibility in this regard and have positioned ourselves accordingly.”

A team from different South Asian competence centers will advise customers at the booth and inform them on innovative developments as well as on the comprehensive range and established quality products.

About Densodrin EP:
This new development combines 30 years of experience with the latest findings from R&D. The product is characterized by level dyeing and reliable application, especially in regions with hard water. It produces a dry surface that facilitates finishing. In environmental terms, Densodrin EP represents a significant step forward.

It can be used on all leather types and is particularly recommended for shoe uppers, which must give excellent performance in the Maeser and Bally penetrometer tests.

About Lepton Aquatop TG:
The application of this product in top coats is a simple, effective way to obtain a transparent high-gloss finish. The product can be readily combined with other products. Particularly glossy surfaces can be obtained by applying it together with a casein binder from the Luron product line.

Combining it with Luron Top makes 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 excellent price-performance ratio. Lepton Aquatop TG can be applied to all leathers but is especially recommended for shoe uppers, upholstery and garment leather.
