Acid protease, Liquid

Novocor® AD-L

Novocor ADL® is a unique acid lipase. It's ideal for degreasing of small skins. If your customers are working with wet blue, they can apply Novocor ADL® at neutralization, before re-tanning. With skins, they can apply it at depickling, after a pre-tannage.

Novocor ADL® is designed for further formulation.

Key Benefits
  • Reduces solvent and surfactant usage in dry cleaning

    In small skins from goats and sheep the fat is embedded between the grain surface and the corium. That makes it very hard to remove. BOWE dry cleaning machines use costly solvents and surfactants. With Novocor ADL®, your customers can reduce solvent and surfactant usage for cost savings. 

  • Batch-to-batch uniformity

    Residual grease leads to inconsistent dyeing, and a range of other quality issues. These affect batch-to-batch uniformity. By minimizing residual grease Novocor ADL® gives your customers greater batch-to-batch uniformity. 

  • < 5% residual fat content for sheepskin nappa

    When processing small skins from goats and sheep, many tanneries aim for a maximum residual fat content of 5%. Novocor ADL® helps them achieve their goal for sheepskin nappa. 

  • Improves waterproofing effect

    This product breaks down fat to make it more mobile. That means it can distribute itself evenly throughout the pelt, rather than gathering to prevent uniform distribution of waterproofing products. Even fat distribution also means that traditional degreasing with surfactants can be reduced or eliminated. This facilitates the production of waterproof and low fogging stock. 

  • A more sustainable process

    Stonewashing with pumice creates substantial amounts of sludge. This has an environmental impact and lead to high treatment costs. With products in this family you can avoid these costs and reduce your mill's environmental footprint.
