AcronymChemical penetration

Proposal titleImproving chemical penetration during leather manufacture

AbstractPenetration of process chemicals into and through the structure of hides and skins is a major

factor influencing all stages of leather processing. To make good quality leather these

chemicals need to penetrate through the substance of the skin and into the hierarchy of the

structure consistently and evenly and for economic viability this needs to be achieved as

fast as possible. The proposed project aims to examine the factors affecting penetration and

the information gained will be used to optimise processes. Methods developed to optimise

penetration will result in an improvement in leather quality, and savings through a more

efficient usage of chemicals and reduced energy usage. Reduced processing times will also

facilitate a more rapid response to customer orders.
