TFL and DSM collaborate to research and develop PUD systems
Can natural leather materials truly offer long-term durability and excellent look and feel finishes without damaging the health of people and our planet? We certainly think so. That’s why, at DSM, we’ve partnered up with the German company TFL: to research and develop sustainable waterborne polyurethane dispersion (PUD) systems.
This new partnership brings together two formidable forces, each with their own expertise. TFL has a deep understanding of the leather industry, while our scientists at DSM have been developing sustainable coating finishes for decades. Together, we aim to unlock the value of sustainable leather finishes and drive forward with purpose!
Above all, our partnership will set its sights on delivering more sustainable leather finishes while ensuring even higher levels of aesthetic and functional performance. Sounds like a challenge, right? We’re confident our combined understanding and expertise will be able to meet – and exceed – the needs of major leather customers around the world.
