Leather Tanning

Borregaard offers cost-effective, sustainable biopolymers for use in leather tanning. The use of our lignin-based products in combination with vegetable or synthetic tanning formulations result in better tan fixation and improve the tightness, fullness, roundness and firmness of the leather. These solutions are highly versatile and can perform a variety of functions during pre-tanning, re-tanning and dyeing.

Our solutions are bio-based and seek to be the answer to the increasingly important trend of sustainable leather tanning.

Our Borrebright products are also excellent dispersants for dyeing materials. They improve the penetration in aqueous leather finishing and provide outstanding levelled dye shades and a consistent quality to the leather. You can learn more about our products for textile dyeing here.
