Everything's all white: TFL's tanning solution1 August 2013
Raw material prices account for the majority of costs of leather; reason enough for turning any hide into the best possible leather product.
It is with this thought in mind that 'White' has been chosen by TFL as the lead motto underpinning their attendance at ACLE 2013. The message stands for a further evolution of TFL's wetwhite tanning technology, while also addressing the need for leather that stays clean and beautiful even after an extended time of wear.
The idea of White solutions will run as a common thread throughout TFL's ACLE appearance. The main topics are:
- TFL White Line System: In the mid 1990s TFL were the first company introducing wet-white technology (Sellatan CF new) in a larger scale to automotive leather manufacturing. Since then, TFL have been committed to developing alternatives to chrome tanning for all kind of leathers with a simple goal: to create a unique, natural material of high quality which after use can safely be disposed of and recycled.
- TFL Anti-soiling Solutions: TFL provide an approach in anti-soiling and leather care with a complete system solution. Only a system approach where the finishing top coat of the leathers and the cleaning and care products harmonise will guarantee highest performance over a long time. The foundations of the system are the Roda fix top coat products, the care products Roda tec and the cleaner Roda clean.
- TFL Low Sulphide Technology: For lack of workable alternatives the use of inorganic sulphides has been the preferred way of unhairing in leather making for more than a century. The use of organic sulphides has been shown to be practicable, but has not really been accepted. Now, TFL are happy to introduce a new Low Sulfide Technology to you. It comprises a soaking agent, Pellvit LSS which offers good layout and high area yield, whilst the unique enzymatic unhairing auxiliary Erhavit LSU builds up the perfect basis for your tanning process, with the lowest levels of sulphide needed.
