What are polyurethanic resins and which are the advantages of their use in leather working?
Polyurethanes is a family of chemical compounds employed in many processes. Polyurethanic resins are mainly designed to improve two important leather characteristics, which we consider of uttermost importance: quality and beauty. In terms of quality, polyurethanic resins enhance many essential leather properties leading to outstanding levels of water resistance, impressive dry and wet rub fastness values and incredible softness and fullness of garments. In terms of beauty, these resins ameliorate sealing, levelling and embossing of leather and they give a more natural aspect to the final product. However, not only do these resins improve the quality and beauty of the leather, they also greatly facilitate its manufacturing, providing excellent adhesion and enhanced film flexibility and allowing embossing without finishing cutting.
