High-performance Corial® binders

Stahl’s Corial® binders are resins with medium-to-fine particle sizes that produce very soft to medium-hard film hardness. They are particularly recommended for garments, shoes and other leather goods applications. Our Corial® binders add a range of properties like low tack, natural finishing, softness, adhesion, and good milling and printing properties. They can be used on a range of leathers, from corrected grain to nappa and other full grain leathers. Corial® Microbinder AM and P can be used to achieve a natural look and character, where Corial® Binder EV has high filling properties.

Soft, effective Melio® resins

Our range of Melio® resins have fine-to-medium particle sizes and produce very soft to medium-soft film hardness. They offer various resistance properties (cut-through, cold crack, water-drop) as well as adhesion and good print retention. In this way, they add effective protection to leather for various applications, including automotive. Melio® Resin A-946 has excellent cold crack and flex resistance, where Melio® Resin A-931.A is self-crosslinkable.

Versatile and resistant RA resins

Stahl’s RA resins include fine, medium and fine particle sizes and produce soft to very hard films. Many are self-crosslinkable and offer good adhesion and print retention, and a natural look. These resins also offer other high-performance properties such as solvent, water and acetone resistance, covering, and mechanical stability. In addition, RA-2 is non-yellowing, and RA-1216 can add a craquele effect. Our RA resins are recommended for automotive and shoes and leather goods applications but can also be used for garment and upholstery applications.

Stahl’s acrylic resins are part of our Stahl Neo® portfolio, which means that they comply with the ZDHC MRSL.
