Research is a key tool in providing customers with the best possible solutions. Concentrol laboratories carry out technical studies in order to develop effective and innovative products and, at the same time, analyze and delve into the new needs of the market, such as respecting the environment and the health and safety of workers. This generated content is collected publicly by sector and by area of ​​specialization through the White Papers; the latter, focused on release agents for the state-of-the-art footwear sector.

One of Concentrol’s specialties is shoe release agents and shoe soles. Depending on the material (polyurethane: polyether or polyester base, EVA, among others) of the footwear, a release agent or another will be applied. Other characteristics and factors must also be taken into account, such as the type of sole (one-density or two-density) that requires different injections, the finish of the sole, subsequent processes, emissions, occupational safety and others. 

The new White Paper on the footwear sector presents the wide range of solvent-based, water-based and hybrid release agents (50:50 or 70:30 parts of water and solvent) that Concentrol offers. At the same time, it demonstrates the efficacy and safety of all solutions, after technical development studies and testing of the products made in the company’s laboratories by a specialized team.

For more than 75 years at Concentrol we have been working on the design, development and testing of all our solutions, based on market needs. Sharing these research processes puts all this knowledge within the reach of technicians, professionals in the sector and clients, at the same time that Concentrol’s solutions for each sector are presented in detail.
