System solutions for the leather industry
Leather is a natural material – durable and highly resilient. And yet leather – like a chameleon – has to adapt to short-lived fashion trends, fields of application, and performance. A lofty requirement for manufacturers and suppliers. The Leather business unit offers innovative chemicals and system solutions for this purpose. In the development of new products and processes, great importance is attached to sustainability. With its portfolio, this business area is certified as the industry leader in ensuring compliance with standards and reducing the use of hazardous chemicals. Leather producers can thus produce any desired color, shape, or structure with a comprehensive product portfolio while at the same time being able to rely on product safety and sustainability. If required, the business unit also assists the customer directly on-site with competent technical application support in order to achieve the best solutions together with the customer.
