Together with Trumpler, leader in leather chemicals since 1868, we have teamed up to create DyTan®, a groundbreaking leather tanning and dyeing process that produces high-performance leather, in a more eco-friendly and cost-efficient way. DyTan® is suitable for a wide range of leather applications, from garment and footwear to automotive and furniture upholstery.
At the core of DyTan® is Archroma’s patented revolutionary AVICUERO® System, which is based on novel molecules that enable more sustainable leather tanning and dyeing, developed by Archroma in cooperation with leather technology consultant Dr Leather.
The high exhaustion AVICUERO® technology platform allows tanners to take significant, positive steps towards reducing CO2 values attributed to wet-end processing, particularly when coupled with specific retanning and fatliquoring technology. This innovative tanning process is proven to be highly pH controlled and often does not require any temperature adjustments.
With AVICUERO®, tanners benefit from significantly shorter processing times and better reduction of CO2 emissions as compared to using other metal free tanning systems. It also eliminates the pickling process and the use of common salt leading to improved effluent discharge loads.
*Estimations carried out with the Archroma ONE WAY Impact Calculator show energy savings of up to 25% and reduced process time leading to a reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 23%, compared to traditional chrome tanning1. They also show significant water savings compared to other metal-free tanning systems1. With the ONE WAY Impact Calculator, customers will be offered personalized calculations for their specific processes.
