Rohm and Haas Company introduces innovative acrylic polymer with unique benefits

Rohm & Haas Co : 13 November, 2002  (New Product)
Rohm and Haas Company has introduced an innovative acrylic polymer with unique benefits as a retanning agent for softer leathers. Designated LEUKOTAN 8090 acrylic syntan, the new offering has the valuable ability to selectively fill loose pockets and more open areas in leather without excessive plumping. The result is a more uniform crust with increased cutting value.
Rohm and Haas Company has introduced an innovative acrylic polymer with unique benefits as a retanning agent for softer leathers. Designated LEUKOTAN 8090 acrylic syntan, the new offering has the valuable ability to selectively fill loose pockets and more open areas in leather without excessive plumping. The result is a more uniform crust with increased cutting value.

Apart from novel filling behavior, LEUKOTAN 8090 possesses other appealing attributes. The dispersing ability of this syntan is especially noteworthy; it helps to assure uniform dye acceptance and promotes thorough distribution of lubricating polymers and other retanning agents. Other key LEUKOTAN 8090 features include a wide pH tolerance and no contribution to fogging. Finally, like other acrylic syntans, LEUKOTAN 8090 imparts resistance to the detrimental effects of light and heat.

The properties of Leukotan 8090 make it appropriate for the soft leathers employed in upholstery and garments. Leukotan 8090 can also be used to improve the break of heavyweight leather, and its filling properties are especially desirable in dry-milled leathers.

Additional information on LEUKOTAN 8090 acrylic syntan is available from Rohm and Haas Company, 100 Independence Mall West, Philadelphia, PA 19106. For literature, call 1-215-641-7189.

With annual sales of approximately $5.7 billion (U.S.), Rohm and Haas is a major manufacturer of specialty chemicals for a variety of applications including leather tanning and finishing. Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Rohm and Haas employs more than 17,000 in more than 25 countries.
