AMICAL® Used as an antifungal agent for chrome tanned leathers to protect leathers from mold and, mildew during wet processing wet blue during long storage and transportation periods encountered when exporting. Amical is available in dry and liquid forms in three concentrations: Amical® 48 a fine tan powder with 95% activity. Amical® WP is a fine tan powder with improved dispersability with 46% activity. Amical® Flowable is a tan liquid suspension with 40% activity. powder
CHEMTAN® A-55 A synthetic complex amino alcohol based on oxazolidine and is used as an aldehyde donor. It can be used in combination with chrome tannages for hides or used together with organic retannages, especially for perspiration resistant and water resistant leathers. liquid 100% 9.0 anionic
CHEMTAN® A-58 A cyclic amine compound which acts as an aldehyde donor. Used in combination with chrome tannages, and can be used for all types of leathers especially for perspiration and water resistant leathers. Used for high performance leathers to improve uniformity. liquid 66% 11.0 mildly anioic
CHEMTAN® A-64 A mixture containing glutaraldehyde used as chrome- free, pretanning agent. Produces leathers with high shrink temperatures without the use of heavy metals. liquid 55% 4.0 nonionic
CHEMTAN® B-4 An enzyme based soaking assist used for soaking all types of hides and skins. Improves layout and increases yield. Helps with the release of oil, grease, scud and dirt. Improves uniformity of liming, and unhairing. powder 8.0
CHEMTAN® B-6 A pancreatic enzyme used for bating of bovine hides and pigskins. Improves layout and creates a fine grain pattern. Helps with the release of trapped scud and dirt. This product is a light tan powder added dry after the deliming agents. It is compatible with most sufactants used in bating. powder
CHEMTAN® M-5 A wet white, chrome free tanning agent as a leather alternative tan for: Chrome/Zirconium/Titanium/Aldehydes or Syntans. Produces leathers a white leather stock with minimal to no yellowing. Improved shrink temperature compared to typical aldehyde, aluminum tans. powder 99% 5.5 cationic
CHEMTAN® M-35 Highly soluble form of Zirconium Sulfate used for all white tannages, retanning chrome tanned leathers, and as a metal cap for waterproof systems. Firms and tightens leathers and changes certain fatliquors from hydrophilic to hydrophobic. . powder
CHEMTAN® M-88 Inorganic retanning agent used before neutralization alone or together with chrome. Produces leather with better fullness and grain tightness, and is particularly useful in filling the pockets. powder 99% 3.2 cationic
CHEMTAN® Unhairing Assist FR-62 An aliphatic amine used with the lime and sulfide for faster, cleaner hair removal. Improves the solubility of lime for more uniform swelling. Allows reduced amounts of sulfide resulting in lower BOD and COD in the effluent. Applied during the normal lime/relime. Minimizes fat wrinkles and drawn grain. liquid 30% 9.5
PROXEL® GXL A liquid anti microbial agent to prevent bacterial attack during brine curing. Provides short term preservation of fresh hides. Can be used for finishes and paste preservation. Has a broad spectrum of activity against organisms over a wide pH range of 4 to 12, and is a nonvolatile liquid, odor free and stable at high temperatures. Regulatory clearances for BIT from EPA, FDA, and USDA have been obtained for wide variety of aqueous industrial applications. Chemical breakdown of BIT readily occurs from oxidation. liquid
VANTOCIL® IB A liquid antimicrobial agent. Used in conjunction with Proxel® GXL to prevent bacterial attack during brine curing; and for short term preservation of fresh hides. As a quick kill bactericide Vantocil® quickly lowers the bacterial count in the raceway and on the hides, and results in a more bacteria free hide which then can be treated with a longer term bactericide such as Proxel® GXL. liquid
ZENITH® 388 A new non-TCMTB antifungal agent developed for the preservation of leather stock against
mold attack. It is used for the protection of pickled, wet blue, wet white stock, vegetable-tanned, crust and finished leather. It is effective against a wider range of fungal species than TCMTB based fungicides. The product is formulated to easily disperse in tanning liquors.
