An international team of specialists will be in attendance to inform customers visiting the stand about the latest additions to the BASF range as well as the company’s extensive range of established high-quality products.

Eusapon® OE – A new universal degreasing agent
Eusapon® OE is the latest edition to BASF’s successful Eusapon range. Eusapon® OE is a new universal degreasing agent for the leather and fur industry. The fat that is removed from the skin forms a very stable emulsion, and the leather responds very well when it is fatliquored later on in the process. Eusapon® OE is very low foaming, it is easy to handle and it is easy to dissolve, even in cold water. It is economical and environmentally friendly, which makes it very useful in all processes performed in the beamhouse, from soaking through to bating.

Relugan® GM – A new glutaraldehyde tanning agent with excellent cost effectiveness
Relugan® GM is a new glutaraldehyde tanning agent that makes it possible to achieve excellent results at an economical price. It is easy to handle, and provides a cost-effective means of manufacturing wet white. Quick and even penetration as well as good dyeability especially for white leather and pastel shades are additional advantages of this new glutaraldehyde. Leather treated with Relugan® GM has a full, soft handle and a fine grain pattern. Relugan® GM can be employed in pretannage and as a retanning agent. It is recommended for use on all types of leather, especially automotive leather and upholstery leather.

Relugan® Soft HF – Highest fastness levels for all soft leather types
Relugan® Soft HF combines all the advantages of polymeric retanning agents and synthetic fatliquors. The leather is so soft over the whole surface of the skin that additional use of native fatliquors can be fully or partially dispensed with. Leather that has been treated with Relugan® Soft HF fulfils the highest standards of migration resistance, light and heat fastness, and it has very low FOG and VOC emissions. Relugan® Soft HF performs very effectively on all soft types of leather, especially automotive and upholstery leather. It also opens up new possibilities in the field of shoe upper leather and garment leather, because it can be used to obtain washable leather and leathers with a low specific weight.
