• BASF at India International Leather Fair Chennai: February 1-3, 2016, Booth 02-B, C Hall 3;
• Launches new solutions to reduce carbon footprint in tanneries;
• Builds on history of innovation, quality and reliability.

At the show, BASF will mark 125 years of innovation in leather while exhibiting products to help tanneries lower their carbon footprint, as well as their water and energy usage.

BASF’s history with the natural material leather started in 1891, and the first leather laboratory was established in 1895 in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

“Celebrating our 125th year anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect on the values such as innovation, quality and reliability that have made us successful,” stated Alex Wartini, Vice President of Leather Chemicals, BASF. “I’m very proud to say those remain our driving values today. We carry our history of innovation and putting customers first in everything we do today.”

Tradition of innovation
Innovations that address the challenges faced by customers are an important success factor for BASF’s long-term growth and has driven the company to find answers to present-day challenges. BASF launched DryFast, its newest beamhouse process, on the market in 2014 which combines the advantages of a range of products to a solution that significantly reduces water, energy and process time for tanneries.

This was quickly followed in 2015 with a new generation of topcoat system for automotive finishing which offers up to 20% higher durability compared to the industry benchmark and meets the most stringent requirements from original equipment manufacturers in terms of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and consumer safety. Another new introduction was the 3S (superior, secure, simple) surface coating system for corrected grain leather which sets a benchmark in fastness standards.

These present-day innovations are in keeping with the company’s tradition of pioneering a number of ‘firsts’ in the leather industry, including the first synthetic tanning agent in 1912, and the first non-benzidine dye in 1972 solutions that helped shape the course of development within the leather industry.

Fortifying the innovation network
BASF recently announced an investment of approximately €50 million in a new Innovation Campus in Navi Mumbai, India, which will be operational in 2017. The leather chemicals unit will have a development lab here. This new facility will enhance its ability to innovate in Asia for Asia and shows its commitment to the leather industry in India. This new lab in Mumbai strengthens its network of existing R&D leather centers in China, Germany, and Spain and creates new opportunities for building up and expanding customer relationships.
