Leather is vain. Leather aims for perfection. How? By having its unique naturalness highlighted while meeting today’s strict demands on look, performance and economic feasibility. Unfortunately, conventional finishing practices are very often incapable of combining all these ambitious goals – not least because of leather’s natural imperfections.
This is why EUDERM® X-Grade technology was developed and has been steadily improved – for hiding small and medium-sized grain-side defects that significantly lower the final product’s commercial value. EUDERM® X-Grade products can be used either as the main component in up-grading prebottoms or as auxiliaries in base coats. It all depends on the final product, or the degree of damage that needs to be blended in.
Small pinholes or deep scratches, splits, full grain or corrected grain leather: The EUDERM® X-Grade technology offers finishers added-value solutions for leather. So why not give your leather an attractive, cost-effective facelift!
The secret of EUDERM® X-Grade’s upgrading success is based on the intelligent integration of microcapsule technology into well-balanced binder and auxiliaries’ matrixes. The technology behind it is certainly sophisticated and makes individual solutions to individual problems possible.
Whether applied by well-established methods such as roll coating (direct or reverse), air, HVLP or airless spraying, the EUDERM® X-Grade technology covers up small and medium-sized hide defects, as the photos on the right demonstrate. Unlike common finishing systems, EUDERM® X-Grade upgrading products maintain their filling capacity after drying, resulting in an excellent covering of the defects, which in turn leads to a significantly improved cutting yield.EUDERM® X-Grade finishing technology is particularly suitable for all kinds of leather articles, and in particular automotive, furniture and shoe upper leather. It is applied in prebottoms and/or base coats in combination with conventional base coat products.
EUDERM® X-Grade technology eliminates defects like pinholes or cuts with astonishing success. By upgrading leather using this technology, tanneries can profit from a significant increase in cutting yield and an enhanced embossing pattern obtained with less loading finishing layers.
