Maximise your cutting yield

TFL can help tanners to make more profit by increasing the useable area of leather. Most tanneries nowadays have to deal with poor hide and skin quality causing problems with grain tightness, fullness of flanks as well as with mechanical strength of leather. This reduces the tanner’s profatibility and lowers the general quality image of leather at the consumer’s end.

Cutting yield is defined by the 3 following factors:

  • Area (square footage)
  • Area which has most uniform grain break, softness, fullness
  • Area with minimum amount of surface defects

Tailor-made systems from TFL increase your competitive edge by maximising the cutting yield.

The right products in Beamhouse: Pamper your valuable raw hides right from the process start

PELLVIT® IS-A – salt free, multifunctional soaking agent for fuller flanks.
It stabilizes belies and flanks against mechanical impact in soaking and lining, thus making the m fuller and tighter in order to maximise the usable area.
In addition, it reduces swlling in the liming process and gives less draw and growth marks, which also results in an improved area yield.

ERHAVIT® FA – liming agent free of amines optimizing relaxation and grain cleaning
The product optimizes the layout without compromising tightness and fullness, by relaxing and opening-up the hides and skins, without making them loose. It effectively minimizes seasonal short hair and hair roots, making it ideal for the Hair-Save liming process.
