Leather Tanning Additives

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

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

The 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.
