After the very successful launch of MAGNOPAL® IPF in 2013, TFL has now developed a further product based on the same innovative polymeric filling technology.
MAGNOPAL® IPR combines a pronounced filling effect with softening and some retanning features which are evenly distributed over the structure of the hide or skin. It can help to simplify wet-end application recipes by reducing the amount and number of traditional softening, retanning & filling agents necessary. Leathers produced with this polymeric retanning agent feature good heat-resistance, lightfastness and very good hydrolysis properties. No negative effects on physical properties have been observed.
MAGNOPAL® IPR can be used to produce a wide range of leathers based on wet-blue or wet-white; from soft articles, such as garment, upholstery and automotive leathers, to firmer types, like shoe upper and leather goods. Milled nappa shows a more uniform break; leathers are soft and light with reduced specific area weight; they show a level dyeing with minimal shade weakening. MAGNOPAL® IPR is free of formaldehyde and does not contain chemical substances which are restricted by any major chemical regulation.
