As market leader in specialty chemicals, Stahl is determined to help create a more sustainable leather supply chain. To revolutionise the second stage in the supply chain, tanning, the manufacturer offers Stahl EasyWhite Tan.

Stahl EasyWhite Tan is a leather tanning system for the creation of chrome-free leather that uses 40% less water during tanning and the salt in the wastewater is reduced by at least 80%. The tanning float can be easily reused and is chrome-free, and the quality of leather tanned with Stahl EasyWhite Tan is outstanding. It is very soft and smooth, yet it remains dimensionally and thermally stable; the collagen fibres are less damaged during the tanning process, resulting in a tighter grain and wrinkle reduction upgrading the leather quality.

How does Stahl EasyWhite Tan work?

Stahl EasyWhite Tan is highly innovative in several respects. In contrast to other chrome-free tanning processes, it involves no sacrifices to the quality and usability of the leather. Moreover, it considerably simplifies and shortens the production process as two demanding steps, pickling and basification, in the tanning process become superfluous. Thanks to its pearl white appearance, our Stahl EasyWhite Tan is not only suited for dark coloured leather, but also for white and light colourings that last, and is ideal for all kind of applications, from leather jackets, trousers and shoes to bags, gloves and bracelets.

Key advantages:

  • Soft, smooth and lighter leather in every colour
  • Gentle on the skin
  • Sustainable metal-free leather for all kind of applications
  • Fewer chemicals, salt and water lower the environmental impact
  • Simplified tanning process saves time and energy
