TFL launched a new soft fatliquor with excellent cost/performance ratio to produce a broad range of articles. The product is based on a combination of special natural & synthetic softening agents and suitable to make all types of soft leather articles.
CORIPOL® AV features a pronounced softening effect with a full and silky to waxy handle. Leathers show good physical properties and an especially good tear-resistance. The unique formulation provides good light and moderate heat fastness on wet blue and FOC leathers. On top of which, the leathers show good gravimetric and reflectometric fogging values.
In the production of furniture upholstery leather, CORIPOL® AV can be applied as a single fatliquor in a simple process, providing very good softness. In automotive and shoe upper leather production its main position is as a companion fatliquor. Due to its electrolyte stability the product can be used as pre-fatliquor in pickle and/or chrome baths; this also makes it suitable for semi and full vegetable tanned leathers.
CORIPOL® AV is mainly based on renewable raw materials. The fatliquor bath exhausts well thus reducing the COD and BOD values of the tannery waste water. CORIPOL® AV is free of any restricted or regulated substances and is thus suitable for the TFL WHITE LINE® technology.
