Bisphenols and the relation to leather chemicals

Since the restriction proposal on bisphenols and the addition of Bisphenol-S to the California Proposition 65-list, we have received numerous requests from the leather industry about bisphenols and the relation to leather chemicals.

In this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) paper, we explain the basics for a better understanding on bisphenols, focusing on the leather industry. This FAQ was written for Smit & Zoon customers and anyone else who would like to learn about bisphenols and how Smit & Zoon is dealing with this. Through this FAQ we offer our knowledge in accelerating the process of creating a socially and environmentally sustainable leather value chain.
