Clariant Introduces Melio® Softfix ANV for Use in Fine Leather Basecoats

Published on 2013-05-29. Author : SpecialChem

MUTTENZ -- Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, has formulated its Melio® Softfix ANV especially for finishing aniline, nappa and nubuck to meet the undiminished demand for a more natural type of leather for the footwear and garment sectors.

Melio Softfix ANV is a very versatile type of NMP/NEP-free, aqueous, finest particle size, polymer dispersion.

Color correction and enhancement on nubuck and improvements of the rub fastness properties of these leathers - as well as maintaining at a high level the sought-after writing effect that distinguishes suede - are key properties.

The versatility of Melio Softfix ANV is further displayed when it is used as the main ingredient of fine leather base coats, which are necessary to achieve elegant garment leathers and double-face.
