Evaluation of (Re)tanning Effect of Leather Chemicals in a Model and a Real System

Smit & Zoon is continuously researching sustainable alternatives to leather testing, for the development of new products. Our scientists examine the use of a model to test new products, in order to save large amounts of leather and avoid the disadvantages of inevitable variations and non-standardised wet-end recipes encountered in regular testing on real leather. You can read more about our ongoing research into sustainable alternatives in our published whitepaper.
