TANIGAN®

BPS/BPF optimized syntans

The Background

TFL is one of the most recognized global suppliers of high quality syntans that are well known under the product brand names SELLATAN® and TANIGAN®.

In order to maintain this lead TFL continually invest in research and development and associated application support to keep you, our valued customer, at the cutting edge of very latest technological advances.

New restriction proposals for Bisphenol contents in syntans as well as in leather have been announced by the German Authorities. This will lead to a threshold for consumer articles imported to, or manufactured in, Europe. However, threshold limits are yet to be determined and the publication of draft has been postponed by the German Authorities until earliest October 2022.

Nevertheless, we at TFL have taken steps to remain ahead and now launch TANIGAN® BN-O Liq,TANIGAN® LF-O Liq, TANIGAN® RL-O* Liq and TANIGAN® DS-O Liq. These new products not only address the very latest regulatory challenges with regards to low BPS & BPF content, but in addition, ensure valuable leather properties can be attained and facilitate the production of the vast majority of leather articles. However, this is not an end to our activities and you can expect further product launches in due course adding onto these initial and essential four “building blocks”.

* Launch expected in Q3-2022

The Benefit

Performance

Our syntans are an essential part of the wet-end processing to attain articles with desired fullness, tightness and softness and ensuring highest fastness requirements at the same time.

TANIGAN® products provide multiple benefits to leather articles, such as:

  • Attain the required dimensional stability, removing undesirable excessive stretch
  • Tailor-made with exacting chemistry ensures consistent quality leather results
  • Full, round vegetable character without the limitations of, for example, strong self colour andhigh affinity
  • Tight, dense grain supports better buffing behaviour to give, for example, finest grained nubucks
  • Facilitate both print definition and retention whilst maintaining grain elasticity

Process

Reduce cationic charge, adjusting the Isoelectric Point, to the optimum for rapid processing. Improve penetration and distribution of resins, polymers and other retanning and dyeing products. Levelling of fatliquors and other softening agents giving more uniform handle from neck to bellies and butt.

Sustainability

High exhaustion, low bleaching syntans supporting economical and efficient leather production. Liquid form of the new TANIGAN® syntans results directly in lower energy consumption during their manufacturing and thus a significantly lower CO2 footprint.

The Product Introduction

TANIGAN® BN-O Liq

Ideal replacement syntan for very soft and round leather with a high degree of fillingand excellent tanning

  • very low residual monomer content, including free formaldehyde and BPS (<0.1 %)
  • completely free of BPF
  • good milling performance
  • very low astringency
  • good light fastness and heat yellowing resistance

TANIGAN® LF-O Liq

It is the ideal syntan for tight, flat “not plumped”, smooth grain leather articles, very low residual monomer content, including free formaldehyde and BPS (<0.1 %)

  • completely free of BPF
  • recommended to apply in combination with other syntans or vegetable tannins preferablyfor wet-blue
  • retanning, e.g., 6 % to 15 % for milled Nappa
  • high degree of whiteness
  • very good light fastness and good heat yellowing resistance

TANIGAN® DS-O Liq

Syntan with pronounced dispersing properties applied in combination with other syntans and vegetable tannins in the retanning of wet-blue and wet-white and to support the de-watering inpretanning for wet white

  • very low residual monomer content, including free formaldehyde and BPS (<0.1 %)
  • completely free of BPF
  • treated leather is firm, fine tight grain due to low astringency, with full round handle

TANIGAN® RL-O* Liq

  • Syntan for very soft, round and full leather with excellent tanning properties
  • very low residual monomer content, including free formaldehyde and BPS (<0.1 %)
  • BPF content (<0.1 %)
  • treated leather has good degree of whiteness, good light fastness and adequate heat yellowing resistance

* Launch expected in Q3-2022www
