Safetan MW 005
Smit & Zoon guarantees that Safetan MW 005 does not contribute to formaldehyde release from leather. Besides this, other advantages are obtained when compared with common formaldehyde based melamine resins: - Improved waterproofness uniformity and consistency in terms of Maeser values. - The degree of waterproofing in the looser structured parts, where this class of products preferably and most effectively acts, is notably increased when Safetan MW 005 is applied. - Uniform grain tightness without overloading the grain and underlying fibres. - Increased intensity of dyeing results in leather with significantly improved tightness and fullness - It will not contribute to any formaldehyde release from leather - It is free of chemicals that are listed on restricted substance lists Due to the chemical composition of SAFETAN MW 005 the product is selective absorbed by the looser structures of the hide. As result the main amount of Safetan MW 005 applied will be fixed and bound in the areas that need tightening, although the remainder of the hide benefits as well.
