LANXESS group launched an effective method to prevent microbial infection in leather

leather is a natural product, so it has natural enemies. Fungi and bacteria will not only damage the appearance of leather, but also damage the performance of leather. And like all biodegradable materials, once leather is infected, it may even endanger the health of producers or users

as part of the sustainable leather management plan, LANXESS, a special chemicals group, has introduced an effective method to prevent microbial infection in leather: prepare multi-u-tecg, a patented bactericide specifically for leather protection. The product has a long-lasting protective effect against various fungi and bacteria that erode leather. This bactericide has excellent performance in ecology and toxicology. Beifangduo u-tecg is tailored to protect tanned leather during storage and transportation

this fungicide has economic advantages. The liquid products produced by its high concentration and eutectic technology have less consumption, which helps to reduce transportation and storage costs

the secret of the success of preparing polyoxometachrome u-tecg lies in the specially developed formula, which integrates the complementary active ingredients o-phenylphenol, p-chlorocresol and octyl isothiazolinone. The ecological and toxicological properties of these components have been studied for many years. "Tests conducted by a third-party independent laboratory have confirmed that under the low concentration conditions required for application, the main active ingredient OPP ensures the smooth progress of the spray free project and PCMC can be quickly and easily degraded in the wastewater biological treatment plant," christophertysoe, head of wet end product application research and development of LANXESS leather chemicals business department, explained when conducting tensile tests. "The residual concentrations of these active ingredients can even be biodegradable in ordinary waterways," he added

the special action mechanism of bactam u-tecg is very special: it can irreversibly destroy the cell membrane of bacterial cells without chemical reaction with fungal cells. After that, the active ingredient is released again. In other words, it will not be consumed in the process of playing its role, but can be continuously "regenerated" to continuously and efficiently protect leather. In addition, it combines with collagen fibers through hydrogen bonds, thus staying in leather for a long time. Using an appropriate amount of antimicrobial agents at the appropriate process stage will help to reduce the breeding of microorganisms in the service life of leather in the future. The benefits to consumers are mainly reflected in two aspects: on the one hand, scientific evidence has proved that as long as the product is used in the amount recommended by LANXESS, a small amount of active ingredients left in the leather are safe for human body; On the other hand, these small amounts of active ingredients are enough to effectively prevent microbial erosion

an independent certified German research institution recently conducted further tests on the skin safety of this product. In the test, the paste containing different concentrations of OPP after impregnation and the leather samples treated with bofangduo u-tecg were directly contacted with the skin of the test people who have different degrees of skin allergy with strong material base to promote the green development of the automotive industry and industrial progress. The results showed that no significant signs of skin irritation or skin reactions were found

"as long as it is used correctly, beifangduo u-tecg is a safe and efficient way to permanently protect leather against various molds and bacteria. This product not only meets the laws and regulations of many countries, but also meets the requirements of the list of restricted substances of countless tanneries and processing plants," tysoe concluded
