Lowering the environmental impact of their products is a priority for brands in the fashion, interior design and automotive industry.

To support these brands, Stahl, a leader in chemicals for leather products and performance coatings, now offers a complete EVO range, the next generation polyurethane coatings for shoes, bags, upholstery and automotive interiors.

Sustainable alternative

The EVO building blocks are said to enable manufacturers to produce coated fabrics in a more sustainable way and in line with the latest fashion trends. Stahl’s innovative additions are the 100% water-based EVO topcoat and the DMF(A)-free EVO base.

The latest is a more sustainable alternative for the conventional DMF(A) coagulation process. The EVO coatings that do not contain any restricted substances, offer the performance that brands are used to, while also reducing water and energy usage during the production process, according to the company.

Functionality and looks

Several manufacturers in the fashion, upholstery and automotive industry are already using the EVO products. “These customers have experienced that they can realise the required functionality and the latest looks with the EVO building blocks in a more sustainable manner,” said Uwe Siebgens, Stahl’s Group Director Performance Coatings.
