Simac/Tanning Tech 2020, although held in a climate of general uncertainty caused by the spread of Coronavirus, has led ICAP Leather Chem to have an excellent response in the number and quality of contacts during the three days of the fair. “We believe that our policy of making trade and business by looking at sustainability is increasingly recognised and appreciated by customers and partners all over the world”, explain leaders of the company based in Lainate (Milan).
The Ecovadis certification (www.ecovadis.com) obtained in 2019, which recognises ICAP the highest level of satisfaction in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reached also an excellent response: “It was highly appreciated by the market which showed interest and satisfaction for the path chosen in the last few years”.
During the fair ICAP presented several novelties, including eco-sustainable and high-performance finishing systems, as well as fashion previews related to the sector. Among the most important innovations stands out the new “transfer” finishing method called UPZERO, a versatile and innovative polymeric film that offers numerous advantages both in terms of production and with a lower environmental impact, maintaining the characteristics of look and naturalness typical of traditional finishing.
“The peculiarity of being self-producers starting from basic polymers allows us to create continuous innovation and to be on the cutting edge of product research targeted for the specific technical needs of the various markets. In addition, this gives us with full autonomy and capacity to promptly comply with the new regulations imposed by individual foreign countries, such as China, Korea, Turkey, allowing us to affirm our presence in the most important foreign markets”, explains the Lombard company.
With its 75 years of experience, ICAP Leather Chem has a leadership role in the production of acrylic and polyurethane polymers and a complete range of auxiliaries for the tanning sector, which it sells on the domestic market and exports to over 25 foreign countries.
