Bio based Finishes – How much is possible?

Bio based Finishes – How much is possible? An interesting question, which will be analysed by TFL during the upcoming Freiberger leather days, which are held as hybrid event from May 11th-12th 2022 in Chemnitz, Germany.

Michael Franken, Head TFL Finishing-Product Marketing, will discuss the above-mentioned topic and give answers on how much is possible in modern leather finishing. In the field of high-performance leather, where the use of polymeric chemistry is the key factor, the choice of products with a significant bio content has been far more limited in the past and it was almost impossible to make high performance bio finishes. TFL believes that modern chemistry has changed this. New technologies make use of biomaterials without sacrificing performance. Michael Franken will speak about new options in the manufacture of bio containing high performance finishes and about how this bio content can be calculated to obtain reliable and meaningful facts about the bio content in leather finishes.

The presentation will be held during session 6 in the later morning of June 12th 2022, and if you are interested in modern leather finishing and care about sustainability, we recommend to tune in.
