People are buying more leather goods than ever before, and premium leather is increasingly sought after. This has resulted in high-quality raw material becoming increasingly difficult to source. Stahl has developed an extensive range of leather upgrading solutions, divided into three classifications. Leather processors can easily improve leather quality via the application of specific, easy-to-use techniques.
Stahl's Aquabase, Lepton Enhancer, Melio Ground and Mirage solutions mask grain defects and increase the usable surface area, resulting in a higher cutting yield. The result is smooth, fashionable leather with a natural feel and long-lasting elegance. Whatever upgrading you need, Stahl offers a range of solutions as follows;
High to medium upgrading: Aquabase
Stahl’s Aquabase solutions are ideal for leather whose intended use includes home furnishing, shoes and leather goods. The hand stucco and reverse rollercoater application methods are easy to use and deliver a high-performance leather that is smooth, elegant and durable.
High to medium upgrading: Lepton Enhancer
Lepton Enhancer solutions support upgrading for home furnishing, shoes and leather goods. The desired upgrading level will be achieved using a reverse rollercoater application or applying Lepton Enhancer as an additive in a base coat application. Lepton Enhancer expands when heated, so significantly improving the quality of the upgrade.
Medium upgrading: Melio Ground
The tailor-made pre-base or sealer-coat solutions of the Stahl Melio Ground upgrading range are ideal for manufacturing upholstery, classic leather shoes and leather goods. Our medium upgrading products ensure film formation while sealing the grain. The final outcome is smooth leather.
Fine to medium upgrading: Mirage
