Finishing base coat from C&E19 November 2009
CBASE-NSG is a new leather finishing product from Indian leather chemical makers C&E Ltd. It has been designed to yield a finish that is uniform with high clicking yield for footwear leathers. It also has excellent physical and mechanical properties. CBASE-NSG is a non-film forming blend of speciality waxes, oils and polishable adhesives. With a high active ingredient content of 38+1% and amphoteric character, it has numerous advantages.
CBASE-NSG levels out any uneven absorbency in crust leathers without any hindrance to anchorage of the subsequent coats. The finish is uniform and long lasting. Being non-ionic in nature, it is easily miscible with the C&E L cationic range widely used in the sealing of base coats. For highly snuffed articles where absorbency is important, high-powered sealants such as those from the CBOND and CTOP series can be readily incorporated. The presence of CBASE-NSG in these systems aids sealing by easing and distributing out the mechanical pressure subjected to the leather after application.
The organic constitution of this product helps to impart a filling and covering character, which is not dull. Matt effects are achieved by additional mechanical action. The extent of look depends upon the
severity of the action applied. For instance, a base coat containing CBASE-NSG would present a shiny filled look when stone polished but would yield a dull appearance otherwise. CBASE-NSG is suitable for polished, burnished and repolishable finishes and also has excellent filling characteristics.
