ATC launched new products at APLF6 June 2007
In their beamhouse range, ATC have launched Actilime DSC, a new liming auxiliary that provides a dehairing effect, swelling control and better grain cleanliness. It also allows high reduction of sodium sulfides in the process.
For pretanning, tanning and retanning, Actan ALF is a tanning agent based on aluminium triformate. Used in retanning, Actan ALF provides good buffability, giving short nap on nubuck and suede. During the dyeing stage, Actan ALF increases the brightness of colours. Actan ALF is also highly recommended for pretanning of furs, woolskins and wet white. For the finishing range, ATC promoted three new polyurethane products. They have been developed specially for upholstery but can also be used for shoe uppers and leathergoods. Actybind UP 200 is a bottom coat pu, with high covering power. Actytop UP 300 G is a fixation pu with shiny effect and Actytop UP 400 D is a fixation pu with matt effect, both having high physical properties.
