Used in deliming and/or bating, BORRON® SCA supports the bating agent to effectively remove scud (the remains of hair and epidermis) from delimed pelts. Removed scud is then kept in suspension and is not re-absorbed by the grain. In addition, the product has a bleaching effect on hide pigment and any remaining epidermis. Another use is to clean dirty pre-tanned leather in wetting-black.
The product has a scavenging effect on Hydrogen Sulfide gas. This makes deliming, bating and pickling much safer for the workforce. Obnoxious sulfide and sulfite smells from above mentioned processes are reduced.
Pre-tanned hides excel in brightness, levelness and cleanliness. Crust based on these leathers stand out as being clean & level, thereby improving the selection for aniline and semi-aniline grades. The production of nubuck is also better facilitated.
BORRON® SCA is based on biodegradable components which are effective in the alkaline pH-range and predominantly originate from natural, sustainable raw material sources.
