How to improve leather resistance: leather chemicals and processes

Products and processes to enhance leather resistance

The processes of leather working are essential to confer specific peculiarities to hides. Resistance is one of these.
Various methods are used to enhance leather resistance in different phases of leather working, and specific leather chemicals are used to reach this aim. When we speak about leather resistance we mean both mechanical resistance and resistance to wear, which can be achieved through the tanning, re-tanning and fat-liquoring processes. As far as tanning is concerned, we can claim that chrome tanning is one of the most popular ones (about 80% hides are treated in this way). In addition to improving leather resistance, this process is fundamental also to convey a high level of water impermeability and permeability to air and water vapour. The tanning process is fundamental also to turn hides into hygienic products.

As manufactures like Veco create leather finishing products that can bring out the best in each piece of leather, in the same way the cleaning products and methods that people use should respect and enhance this material.
