For the Beamhouse and Tanyard
GBanti-Bacteria as a Biocide and Fungicide: prevents the growth of bacteria which can damage the hides or skins during the soaking process.
GBdetergent 3D / GB Conc as a Surfactant: used for the wetting of the back of hides and skins.
GBdetergent STRM/ High conc as a Degreaser: helps remove natural fats and grease from hides and skins.
GBdetergent SRM CONC / NF conc as a Swell-regulating agent AND Liming auxiliary: helps prevent uneven swelling/wrinkling of the hides or skins during liming through chemical penetration.
GBlanon fixer as a low sulphide unhairing agents: reduces the amount of sulphides used in a tannery and with it, reducing its environmental impact.
GBalkaline buffer as a replacement for soda ash and sodium bicarbonate: raises the pH of the hides or skins during the soaking or liming process.
GBcid AS as sodium formate and as an organic-acid deliming chemical: helps raise the pH during the neutralization process and replaces traditional ammonium salts when deliming hides and skins therefore helping reduce the ammonium salt pollution in tannery wastewaters.
GBacrylic retarder as a replacement for salt: used during the pickling process to prevent acid swelling of the hides or skins.
GBkol MSD / GBsequestering TAs as a salt-free pickling chemical: replaces traditional pickling-salt and greatly reduces salts in tannery wastewaters.
GBbleaching powder/ GBscour KB as an aldehyde tanning agent: makes wet white.
GBdensol FM as a replacement for magnesium oxide and GBalkaline buffer as a replacement for sodium bicarbonate:
Both raise the pH of the hide during the basification process and allows chromium or aldehyde to chemically bind to skin or hide protein.
