Clariant's Melio® Wax 145 Enhances the Natural Feel of Leather
Muttenz, March 5, 2013 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, has created its Melio® Wax 145 product to help tanners meet the continuing demand for leather that maintains its sought-after natural look and feel, especially in the footwear, handbags and accessories markets.
Melio Wax 145 is a medium hard wax but in an aqueous dispersion that also meets the demands of sustainability and environmental performance. A highly versatile, VOC-free product, it can be used alone as a single coat or in combination with other products to achieve a wide range of pull-up leathers. This is a fashion trend that consumers continue to appreciate and actively seek.
Melio Wax 145 has improved penetration properties and is therefore suited to both corrected and full grain leathers. Creating a clean pull-up break, it can also be used as a pre-ground for Crazy Horse leathers as well as for strengthening aqueous pull-up leathers or antique effects.
