Pigments itself are not able to adhere to leather and form a continuous film. Protein binders are used to hold the paint together after it has dried, ensuring that the desired finish can be achieved. Stahl’s protein binders provide glazed, natural, polish or classic finishes with various hardness and gloss levels for several leather applications, including the apparel & accessories and interior design industries. Whether it’s a glazing natural finish or a modified protein with wax, Stahl’s binders can provide the solution you need. The portfolio includes protein binders for sealer, base, and top coats.

High-performance protein binders for a range of finishes

Our range of protein binders offer tanners a variety of finishing possibilities, from glazed to polishable to natural. They are particularly suitable for base coats for garments or shoes and leather goods applications. In particular, our BI-596 adds transparency and is particularly suitable for drum milling, while Luron* Matting adds a matting agent and wax to aid leveling and filling in base and sealer coats. Melio® Top 285 is perfect for use in base coats to achieve a glossy finish, and Melio® Waxtop B is a protein modified with wax, used in glazable base coats and polished coats.
