Turax B 200 is an auxiliary product, acting as self-basifying agent, which ensures an optimal gradual full basification during chrome and other minerals tanning. Due to Turax B 200’ slow and progressive solubility in acid media, precipitation of pH sensitive mineral salts and consequent “over basification” is avoided and even distribution of tanning salts in the pelt is obtained. As it dissolves slowly Turax B 200 required a continuous running time of at least 8 hours.

Advantages of Turax B 200 are :

  • It saves man power.
  • It protects from eventual mistakes in dosing straight soluble alcali.
  • Safe usage due to specified uniform particle size.
  • It renders constant and uniform wet blue quality.

Recommended usage of Turax B 200 :

  • At the end of mineral tanning   : For bovine 0,3 – 0,5% and for ovine 0,5 to 0,8 % on pelt weight depending on tanning offer and pickle starting pH value.
