Natural grease is the cause of many problems in leather making: insufficient cleanliness and unhairing in liming, draw problems, uneven penetration of chemicals, uneven dyeing, growth of fungi (mould), poor adhesion in finishing, fatty spew, fogging problems and smell.
The way grease is removed can make or break a piece of leather. Surfactants and lipolytic enzymes (together with alkali) play a major role in the process. And for that reason a well balanced product range is crucial in the beamhouse, tanning and in the wet-end.
With BORRON degreasing and emulsifying agents the tanner is able to cope effectively with all kinds of raw hides and skins from whatever source at all steps in conservation and processing . The products are ideally combined to obtain the optimum effect.
