Matt coats for leather

Why Should I Use Matt Coats for Leather?

If you have seen the products that we have to offer on our website for your leather articles, then one thing that you might be interested in is applying a top coat to your product, whether this be clothing, shoe leather, upholstery or leather goods. The great thing about leather is that you can choose to add whatever top coat you like. One thing that many people are interested in learning more about is matt coats for leather. If you are thinking about buying one of these to add a matt finish to your product, then it is important that you learn about the benefits.

   What are the Benefits of Adding a Matt Coat?

What many people may not realize is that there are actually a number of benefits that come with adding a matt coat to leather. First of all, it will leave no shine behind. If you have a leather item that was matt in appearance when you purchased it, then the last thing that you want is for it to start getting shiny. By using a matt coat, you can eradicate this problem. Another good thing about using a matt coat is that it can actually clean and revitalize the leather itself. If you have leather goods, then the last thing that you want is for them to become dirty and dry.

Leather Finishing Chemicals

The different leather products you see around you have been perfected to a smooth finish by people in the tanning and chemical industry. Leather finishing chemicals contribute towards making the final product a sturdy, durable product. One such company which deals with different leather products and uses chemicals during the manufacturing of leather is Veco. Their leather finishing binders are divided into three categories, namely:

  1. Acrylic Resins
  2. Polyurethane Resins
  3. Polyurethane Resins without NMP

Acrylic Resins

The one defining factor for these resins (applicable to all 3 categories as stated above) is that, according to us, they are “resins in aqueous dispersion”. There are two types of Acrylic Resins: Vecosol Binder A (311, 490 & 900) and Vecosol Impregnante. The distinctive feature about the Vecosol binders is that they are resistant to water. The Vecosol Binder A490 should be used when the intent is to get a finish that looks natural and has a soft touch. The A900 can be improved by using proper curing, thereby strengthening the features of the product. The Vecosol Impregnante L1490, according to Veco, is an “impregnating resin capable of give high grain firmness in any type of skin.”

    Resins Polyurethane &  Resins Without NMP

The resins polyurethane category has 4 Vecosol binders: U315, 412, 516 and 607. The U315 binder is especially used for clothing leathers. It is renowned for its softness and superior adhesion. The U412 and 607 have superior flexibility properties. The U516 showcases its excellent printability as a main feature.

The main difference between the Resins Polyurethane and Resins without NMP is that the latter does not have N-metilpirolidone. The Vecosol binders without NMP have the following main features:

  1. Resistant to water
  2. Excellent adhesive properties
  3. Good coverage

A little chemical goes a long way in making your favourite leather product!
