Two main categories
There are various types of leather auxiliaries, and each one is used at a given moment during leather working. However, we can say that there are two main categories containing all the auxiliaries: the first category includes the products that are used before finishing; the second category, on the contrary, is made up of all the products that are used during the final phase of leather working. In the first category we find the auxiliaries that are used during the tanning operations until obtaining the state of wet blue leather, as well as the products that have been conceived for the subsequent operations (retanning, fattening) until a more advanced state (crust) is reached. The second category features finishing leather chemicals, i.e. all the auxiliaries that are used in the final phase of leather working: finishing.
