Wet-end

Leather is our passion, it is the essence of what we do

The quality of our solution portfolio, from Beamhouse to Finishing, contains both the experience of leather making and the latest technologies for a sustainable production of leathers. Everything is conceived and designed to transform an ancient and natural material into a unique and precious leather article.

Nothing beats a luxury armchair or a pair of handmade shoes for sheer comfort and pleasure. We are proud to be a part of that experience.
Our own factories, laboratories and worldwide sales and service network create the strength we need in order to respond on the environmental challenges the leather industry is facing.

We have become one of the market leaders by focusing on innovation, and specializing in the development, production and application of Wet-end solutions.

 

Renewable chemicals

Renewable chemicals or raw materials of renewable and bio-based origin have been used in leather chemicals in specific areas already for a long time, especially in Fatliquors.

Over time many leather chemicals have been developed from petro-chemical origin and have replaced the bio-based products due to a completely different awareness and environment in past times and because they delivered at that time sometimes a better performance. Times are changing now.
