A dedicated product range for leather processing

Tanneries, leather goods manufacturers and shoemakers, as well as retailers and sports outlets, know that silicones enhance the look, feel, water resistance and durability of their products. Silicones give handbags a smooth luxury feel, while silicone wetters and spreaders ensure that leather coatings are uniformly distributed to make leather fashion articles look better. Other silicones incorporated into coatings keep fashion articles looking good by improving mar and abrasion resistance and by preventing tanning oils from migrating out of the leather. Leather tanned with appropriate silicone is made permanently waterproof, while maintaining its breathability.

Elkem Silicones provides leather makers with a full range of products for leather processing:

  • Amino-silicone for a soft and silky touch

  • Bluesil® FLD 1669 carboxy-silicone to render leather permanently waterproof, yet breathable

  • Carbinol-silicone to modify polyurethane coatings

  • Polyether silicones for ease of application and uniform coverage of coatings

  • Silicone gums and resins for mar and abrasion resistance

  • Silicone oils for instant shine.
