Eagle Ottawa’s Ansole soil- and stain-resistant leather finish system was developed based on feedback from OEMs and Tier 1 customers. This technology from Eagle Ottawa helps keep leather clean as well as more cleanable once soiled. This is achieved by adding an inherently soil-resistant character to the leather finishing system, not through a secondary coating. Ansole also has improved crosslinking and a smoother microscopic surface topography, which ensures fewer opportunities for dye or soil particles to become physically entrapped in the topcoat film. With Ansole, light-colored leathers are up to 65% more stain-resistant and up to 75% more cleanable against denim dye transfer, according to the company. In addition, with Ansole, light-colored leathers are up to 60% more stain-resistant and up to 85% more cleanable against carbon-based soiling. The finish system also decreases the surface tension of the finish coating to reduce the penetration and wetting of soil into the finish.
