Productivity and environmental-compatibility
Several new developments from Clariant's finishing range will make their debuts at the fair.
Particular emphasis is given to the new Neosan® Lucido® transparent pigment range.
The highly transparent Neosan® Lucido pigment range is a new dimension in brilliant colors in pure aqueous finishing. Based on a nanotechnology type of pigment dispersion the new range creates lots of opportunities in both anionic and cationic finishing systems. Neosan® Lucido provide both very elegant aniline-like appearance for classical articles as well as highly fashionable and brilliant shades without performance limitations (e.g. migrations).
New high gloss aqueous patent topcoat Aqualen® Top APT is recognized as a breakthrough in water-based finishing systems replacing solvent-based topcoats. Alongside this, Clariant will launch a new range of low VOC topcoat products for fine leathers e.g. shoes & bags. These innovate aqueous topcoats can be used as alternatives to the currently available solvent based tops. The new range of pure aqueous Aqualen® products offers low levels of VOC and top coats with better performance than with traditional technologies can be achieved.
Clariant's industry standard-setting innovation Easy White Tan provides an environmentally compatible, safe and simplified tanning process that will have major benefits for tanners supplying almost every sector, from automotive leather to footwear. This technology has been developed using Clariant's Granofin® Easy F-90 Liquid, an organic compound that is not based on chrome, phenols or aldehydes. It removes the need to add salt during the tanning process as well as reducing the number of stages in the tanning process itself.
Efficiency and high-performance functionality
Clariant will unveil a compact range of syntans offering high economy as well as meeting the latest formaldehyde-free specifications: Tanicor® RS-38 Powder, Tanicor® RS-40 Powder and Tergotan® RE-5020 Powder
New waterproofing agent Dermaphob® WA-71 is a highlight from Clariant's wet end range, specially developed for high-performance water repellent shoe uppers.
The new Melio® Softfix ANV will also be revealed offering the tanner a working solution to the age old problem of improving fastness on nubuck /suede leathers whilst maintaining their natural beauty and aesthetics. Clariant's cutting edge solution to anti-soiling properties for sofa leathers will also be a key highlight.
To inspire and invigorate, Clariant will also be presenting its latest fashion trend collection for season Autumn / Winter 2013-2014 and the next installment of its Moment of Trends concept bringing more of the latest hot fashions from Italy and beyond.
