TECNOCHIMICA SpA, Virtuous chemistry
Tecnochimica SpA, company based in Castelfranco di Sotto, meets the need of the modern tanning industry by providing innovative, high-performance, safe and eco-friendly solutions. Synthetic tannins, resins, oils and fatliquors, liming auxiliaries, dyestuffs and finishing articles. In its plants, Tecnochimica SpA – Tuscany-based company specialized in the manufacturing and sales of chemicals for the tanning industry develops cutting-edge, tailor-made products and systems, fully compliant with the REACH parameters.
“Thanks to a well-established know-how in terms of research, innovation and experience,” explained the corporate management, “our production system enables us to provide a comprehensive array of auxiliaries for leather processing, from the beamhouse to the wet-end, up to the finishing phase. We have managed to establish a tight bond with tanners based on expertise and exclusivity, by becoming a reliable partner, able to respect the identity and productive creativity of each customer, thus ensuring qualitative benefits and repeatable results in full compliance with the specifications concerning leathers used in the manufacturing industry.”
Besides the SYP line (acronym of Save Your Planet) – comprising phenol- and formaldehyde-free products, conceived to meet the needs of the modern tanning industry and its growing interest in environmental impact -, a special mention goes to Bianco, an eco-friendly re-tanning system, thanks to which the exhausted baths feature CODs and sulphates levels inferior to those required by the wastewater treatment consortia. The peculiar combination of resins and synthetics makes the hides thus processed whiter and more resistant, without using pigments. In this way, leathers boast a smoother, lacquered grain, almost as if it’s already finished, uniform surfaces, clean and exhausted dyes, a higher lightness compared to standard systems, a good absorption level in the finishing phase and a significant resistance to the printing process.
On the other hand, Quickish is the perfect solution for a simple, quick finishing with a low economic impact. After the drying phase, crusts are perfectly uniform: any flaw (such as, for example, scratches) is concealed, resulting in a well-dyed and levelled out low grain. Its reactivity is perfect for both leather printing and for finishes with pre-bottoming and light coating. www.tecnochimica.eu
