To produce the soft, durable and functional leather for everyday applications, leather manufacturers rely on a range of chemistries, including binders, lubricants, processing aids and additives. Dow offers a portfolio of proprietary silicone, acrylic and polyurethane chemistries, combined with leather application experience. This powerful combination helps formulators develop both the high-performance coatings needed for use in tanneries – and the solutions that support wet-end processes.
