Chemical makers, Kemira have introduced Tanfor T a new mineral tanning system that produces perfectly white leather for all applications. 

Tanfor T is based on compounds of aluminum and silicon that are perfectly safe for humans and the environment. Tanfor T is a 2-component system, formulated with natural polycarboxylic acids and organic acids. Due to the mineral character of Tanfor-T, the leather offers a perfect dyeability and high dye affinity, allowing for very bright long-lasting colours.

Applications:

Footwear: Because of the high dry shrinkage temperature, Tanfor T leather easily withstands the high temperatures during shoe production. There are fashion possibilities with white leather as a basis for shoes.

Automotive: Leather produced with Tanfor T meets all the requirements for automotive leather without volatile components.

Furniture: It meets all requirements set for upholstery leather, and offers a perfect basis to produce upholstery in all colours. Its fire retarding properties create interesting opportunities.

Garment: Very soft leather can be produced for fashion garments, where the whiteness of the Tanfor T intermediate opens up many new possibilities for your fashion-led customers. It is also a very tough leather, as used for bikers‘ needs. Tanfor T also produces excellent suede.
