Lutan®* BN and Tanicor® PCR-IT for low-impact tanning and retanning

Lutan® BN and Tanicor® PCR-IT are inorganic mineral substances. Lutan® BN* is an aluminum tanning agent that can be used in tanning and retanning. It improves the quality of the leather by giving it a tighter, denser grain which allows the grain layer to be buffed more highly and dyed more deeply. Tanicor® PCR-IT is a chrome syntan complex retanning agent with a soft handle and high filling capacity. It has an effective masking effect and is suitable for pretanning, tanning and retanning.

Both Lutan® BN and Tanicor® PCR-IT are part of the sustainable Stahl Neo® portfolio and therefore comply with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL).
