Turtan X 400 is a replacement syntan developed to produce tanning action with high filling effects on leathers similar to catechinich derivatives but resulting in off-white pigmented leather with good light-fastness. Turtan X 400 applied on un-pickled pelt is capable to produce shrunken effect with shrink patterns of good uniformity. This effect can be varied from a fine pattern through to a medium/large millkorn depending on the syntan quanti- ty, pelt thickness, drum velocity and pH. To direct the effect, usage of added formic/oxalic acid is recommended. Due to its bleaching and dispersing effect toward vegetable extracts, Turtan X 400 is recommended as pre-tanning and retanning agent for vegetable tanned leathers where it promotes fast dispersion and penetration and a good tan color with a tight, full feel.
