Key Benefits Details
  • Improves grain quality, softness and fluffiness

    If they weren't removed, the protein components that sit between the leather-making fibres would cement the fibres together. That would make the final leather harder. By removing these components, this product increases softness and fluffiness. 

  • Reduction of wrinkles

    This product softens and relaxes elastin and fibers. That smoothes out and reduces wrinkles.

  • Better dyeing properties

    Wrinkles, marks and other variations can cause inconsistencies in dyeing. That will impact finished products. This product relaxes elastin and fibers to reduce these variations.

  • Good synergy with acid lipase

    Our acid lipase Novocor ADL® is ideal for degreasing of small skins. Combining this product with Novocor ADL® leads to synergies that boost its benefits in acid bating.  

  • Fully biodegradable

    This product is both biodegradable and renewable. That means it has minimal environmental impact.

Availability: Only available outside Europe

Target application/raw: Wet blue and tanned hides and skins
