12 October 2015
Leather production processes have always been a battle between quality and sustainability. Those days are over. Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ is the alternative, more sustainable tanning system that creates high-quality leather. It enables tanners to produce all types of metal-free leather to the standard leather product specifications and beyond.
 

Our sustainable alternative

Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ meets the growing demand for more sustainable leather without compromising on product quality and usability. Our award winning Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ system also simplifies the tanning process, resulting in time and energy savings. Win-win situation on all fronts!

Key advantages
  • Soft, smooth and lighter leather in every color
  • 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 

Soft, smooth and lighter
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 fibers are less damaged during the tanning process, resulting in a tighter grain and wrinkle reduction upgrading the leather quality. The stronger fibers make the leather more durable, tear resistant and greatly versatile. This enables thinner and lighter leather than ever.

Thanks to its pearl white appearance, our Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ is not only suited for dark colored leather, but also for white and light colorings that last. On top of that, leather tanned with our tanning system shows an extremely high skin tolerance. Taking all the product benefits into account, Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ is ideal for all kind of applications - from leather jackets, trousers and shoes to bags, gloves and bracelets. Combined with the leather finishing you want, the possibilities in look and feel are endless.

Lowering the environmental impact
Compared to conventional tanning processes, the number of chemicals used is reduced by one-third. On top of that, as no additional salt is needed, salt in tanning water is reduced by at least 80%. During the tanning process up to 40% less water is used, decreasing the volume of wastewater. This means that any wastewater produced with Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ is free of metals and can easily be re-used and recycled during liming processes. Altogether, our tanning system lowers the environmental impact significantly.
 
Simplified process saves time, energy and costs
Our Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ simplifies the tanning process. The two conventional production steps of pickling and basification are superfluous. This shortens the production time. Moreover, instead of 6 tanning chemicals being required, now it is only 1. The simplified process reduces the risk of manufacturing errors while the number of checks during the process is lowered from 8 to 2. The final leather will show less prominent wrinkles and growth marks. The performance output of the production will be more consistent. To sum up: our Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ system results in time and energy savings and constant productivity as well. Are you in?
