Stahl’s compact resins add a range of protective properties to base and sealer coats, including high filling, good coverage, and water-resistance. They also form a range of base coat types including madras, patent, and college.

Versatile Lepton® binders

Stahl’s Lepton® binders are medium-soft, medium-gloss resins for base coats and, in the case of Lepton® binder NA, sealer coats, that are suitable for a range of leather types. They are particularly recommended for garment and shoes and leather goods applications. Additionally, Lepton® binder BA is suitable for use in corrected grain leather and offers excellent cut-through resistance on embossing.

Medium-gloss Melio® resins

Our Melio® range contains medium-gloss resins ranging from very soft to medium hard film hardness. They are used in base coats for a range of leathers, especially corrected grain and soft leather, and produce a number of base coat types including madras and college. In particular, our Melio® 02-R-191 F and Melio® 02-S-18-F resins are ideal for foam, while Melio® Resin A-821 adds extra-soft base coats to corrected or full grain upholstery, and Melio® Resin A-825 is a binder for soft base coats designed for garment applications.

Low-gloss, high-performance cationics

Stahl offers two cationic resins with very soft films and a dull gloss, which are used in sealer coats. They are primarily used for garments, shoes, and other leather goods applications, but also for upholstery. Our RC-17-108 resin is ideal for corrected grain leather and offers good covering and leveling with a natural texture. Our RC-17-109 is suitable for full grain, corrected grain, and skins leather, and creates a polishable finish with excellent sealing and dry milling resistance.

Stahl’s compact resins are part of our ZDHC compliant Stahl Neo® portfolio.
