Acrylic copolymers in aqueous emulsion.
SOLACRIL 26 can be used effectively both during the impregnation phase in the drum and during the finishing phase. Using SOLACRIL 26 in a drum enhances fibre firmness and improves buffing for heavy splits for suede, printed leather and articles whose surface should be particularly smooth and firm, such as abraded or fatliquored leather goods. SOLACRIL 26 also confers special polished and brilliant effects to leathers for backing and to leathers goods. It is also excellent for the end stages both on grain and on pig splits (vacuum dried).
SOLACRIL 26 can be used to formulate finishing compounds that should confer good cover, good linking to the lower layer, and excellent overall fastness. The recommended amount varies from 1 % to 3 % in accordance with the fibre structure of the leathers being tanned.
