Specialty chemicals company LANXESS has added new, water-based dyestuffs to its portfolio of leather finishing products. The Levaderm WB range includes the color shades yellow, orange, red, bordeaux, blue, navy blue, green, light brown, medium brown, black brown, gray and black. They are suitable for spray or throughfeed dyeing, effect, base and top coats. “The new Levaderm WB range is characterized by high yield, pure brilliance, very good leveling power and excellent fastness properties,” says Dr. Thomas Brackemeyer, head of the Organic Leather Chemicals business line in LANXESS’s Leather business unit (LEA).
Levaderm WB dyestuffs are solvent-free and not flammable. All products meet the requirements of REACH Annex XVII, Entry 43, with regard to the manufacturing, marketing and use of azo dyestuffs. They are also not based on heavy metals such as lead, mercury, chromium(VI), arsenic, nickel or cobalt.
Sustainable Leather Management
LANXESS consistently endeavors to design its products and processes to be as sustainable as possible and thus to safeguard the foundation of its long-term economic success. As part of its Sustainable Leather Management program, the LEA business unit therefore offers its leather industry customers innovative technologies and products along the entire value chain to support the production of sustainable, ecofriendly leather products – without compromising on quality. “The latest example of Sustainable Leather Management is our new Levaderm WB range of water-based, ecofriendly dyestuffs for leather finishing,” says Brackemeyer.
