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: Pickled pelts and doubleface

How do enzymes work in acid bating of wet blue, pickled sheepskins and double face

The non-homogeneity of  wet-blue, pickled sheepskins and double face causes problems for tanneries. A secondary, acid bating step improves consistency and uniformity. 


The non-homogeneity of wet blue, pickled sheep skins and double face make them challenging for tanneries.  A secondary, acid bating step improves the uniformity of hides and skins sourced from various origins.

Acid bating or re-bating is this secondary step. It further improves tanning and finishing processes for these raw materials.  Acid bating  removes wrinkles and improves evenness, softness, and uniformity in the dyeing process.  

By reducing performance differences in hides and skins sourced from various origins, acid bating enzymes allow tanneries to standardize subsequent processing. That makes their production easier to manage.
