LT-A 3037 is an aqueous aliphatic polyurethane dispersion, which forms a very tough, elastic, clear and none tacky film with good physical properties and UV resistance. The product is recommended for almost all applications. LT-A 3037 can be used for garment and upholstery leather finishing, as well as full and corrected grain shoe upper leathers or splits.
LT-A 3038 is a polyurethane dispersion for base and top coats and can be used for all types of leather. The product gives excellent filling, covering and levelling properties and a pleasant handle.
LT-A 3044 is an aqueous aliphatic polyurethane dispersion, which forms a very tough, elastic, clear and medium tacky film. The product is recommended for many applications especially for garment leather finishing applications such as ‘silky’ and ‘nappa’. The product can be used on full grain, corrected grain or split leather.
LT-C 1004 is a water soluble binder based on modified casein and waxes, which forms a very transparent, deep gloss film. The product is ideally suited for glazed leathers, where it imparts a brilliant gloss to the final finishing coat. It provides excellent, polished and repolished properties on top coats during the finishing process for polished shoe upper leathers.
LT-C 1005 is a water soluble binder based on modified casein, natural oils and waxes, which forms a very transparent, brilliant and soft film. It is ideally suited for bottom coats of glazed finishes, where it imparts a brilliant but natural gloss. The use of LT-C 1005 in glaze finishes improves the distribution of the casein coats to be glazed, and it helps to minimise grain defects. The product is recommended to be used on base coats due to its soft structure and reglazeability.
LT-C 1006 is a modified protein binder, which forms a transparent but very shiny film. It has been developed for glazed leathers and provides high brightness and good repolishability. The product is used in final top coat for optimal reglossability of the final finish. It can also be used as plastifier in combination with harder caseins for a more pleasant touch.
