Clariant put a gloss on it

22 November 2010

Patent leather is always in the fashion focus of shoe designers and manufacturers - sometimes more, sometimes less - but is always in demand. Therefore a great deal of effort has been put into the development of an aqueous alternative for the purely solvent-based patent top coats of the past. Clariant’s Melio 09-T-42 provides tangible benefits over other products currently available.

Melio 09-T-42, an aqueous aliphatic PU-dispersion, is distinguished by the following main characteristics:

  • Aqueous top coat for patent leather imitation
  • Brilliant, transparent and with a higher gloss
  • Maintains leather softness
  • Elegant touch
  • NMP-free
  • Reduced overall emissions
  • Excellent flow and levelling properties, including faster drying times
  • Very high physical properties
  • No additives (eg casein/silicone) required
  • Ideal for spray and rollercoater applications
