TFL PURE TEC
Let’s face facts! Leather is one of the most natural and original material in our modern world. It comes from nature, it lives with nature and in the end it goes back to nature.
We at TFL are strong supporters of leather as a natural and sustainable product, so we have developed a solution to bring the terms “leather” and “nature” in line.
We have created a polymer composed of 93% renewable materials
With this in mind, we have developed MAGNOPAL® Pure A, a film-forming bio-polymer and primary ingredient of the Wet-end process. It is based on vegetable biomass, a staggering 93% of which consists of renewable materials. It’s free of acrylates, formaldehyde, phenol and naphthalene and is a pioneer in shifting to non-petrochemical leather manufacturing.
MAGNOPAL® Pure A enables a manufacturing process that leaves the lowest environmental footprint possible. This includes further aspects: MRSL-conforming products need to exhaust well and the residual float should be readily biodegradable with a low salinity impact for the effluent treatment plant. All these demands are fulfilled by MAGNOPAL® Pure A – that’s why it bears the name “Pure”.
A “Pure” chemical for outstanding performances on leather
We all know “green” is only one side of the story. In the end, a product needs to perform and deliver the requested results just like MAGNOPAL® Pure A does: It creates smooth and tight leathers with uniform dyeability and a low specific weight whilst achieving the highest shade intensity, levelness, defect coverage and buffability.
MAGNOPAL® Pure A improves the tightness of the fibre structure and therefore makes it suitable for retanning fine and smooth grain articles. Due to its film forming effect, the product reacts especially well on all vacuum dried leathers.MAGNOPAL® Pure A has a high exhaustion. This leads to a significant reduction of the COD load of waste water and has a positive effect on chrome fixation.
MAGNOPAL® Pure A paves the way for TFL PURE TEC
The launch of MAGNOPAL® Pure A is also the birth of the TFL PURE TEC. It’s TFL’s new range featuring products that meet the high standards regarding enhanced sustainability.
Leather is pure nature. Treated with “Pure” products it’s more than just a phrase.
