Minimise cost per hide, optimise leather performance with Optitan

The new Optitan range by Smit offers products which are designed for optimised application results. The range consists of phenolic/disulphonic-condensate-based products, with the highest possible content of active components, offering state-of-the-art performance on emissions, heat yellowing and light fastness. This way, Optitan improves product efficiency and thereby minimises the cost per hide in retanning and its environmental impact. Plus, it enables optimised retanning results. It’s a genuine win-win-win situation.
