- Business Unit Material Protection Products’ impressive debut at the IILF, 2023
Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India]: Specialty chemicals company LANXESS, is presented its exclusive fungicides portfolio for the leather industry at the India International Leather Fair (IILF) in Chennai, India between February 1-3. The Material Protection Products (MPP) business unit showcase edits Preventol® preservative range.
With Preventol® LANXESS offers effective and economical long-term preservation of leather intermediates. It provides protection against mold & fungi in leather manufacturing process. While fighting mold, the membrane active biocides are not degraded but released unchanged, so they can repeat their defense work over and over again – a truly regenerative biocide ensuring long-term protection.
Unlike other systems, most Preventol® products contain more than one active substance and function ensuring that both modes of action are combined in one product. This leads to a broader spectrum of efficacy and additional safety for the tannery.
A further benefit of these active substances, unlike electrophilic active substances which protect mainly the surface, is their ability to penetrate the cross-section of a hide. That gives an extra protection even after splitting the leather intermediates: otherwise, new surfaces emerging from splitting would immediately be at risk. Membrane active biocides reduce this risk and give tanneries more security.
Speaking at the event, Anand Muthureddy, Head – Business Unit Material Protection Products, LANXESS India, said, “LANXESS has continuously manufactured quality products to meet the demands of the fiercely competitive Indian market. Over the years, we have concentrated our efforts and consciously invested in providing sustainable solutions for the industry. We are extremely pleased to showcase our products at the IILF 2023 and will continue to keep our customer orientation a top priority.”
