The use of leather chemical market, one of the most commonly known materials across the globe, can be traced back to ancient civilizations. Dating back over 7,000 years, leather refers to any fabric derived from the skins or hides of animals. Cowhide is the most prominent type of animal skin used to produce leather, accounting for nearly 65% of the overall leather production, however, leather can be derived from the hide of almost any animal, including crocodiles and stingrays.

Leather is a sturdy fabric, resistant to wrinkles, and can exhibit various looks and feels, depending on the type of animal hide used, the grade as well as the treatment.

One of the most prominent producers of leather treatment chemicals market is Stahl, with several sustainable and innovative leather processing solutions for emerging and novel niche markets. The products span the entire leather processing spectrum from wet-end processing to leather finishing.

Burgeoning need for sustainable leather processing methods to mitigate adverse impacts of chrome tanning

While the tanning process is an integral part of leather processing, it also poses several risks and health hazards to both the environment as well as workers. Chrome-tanning, which is the most common tanning methods, accounting for 80% of the leather produced, is economical, fast and efficient, however, the heavy-metal minerals it produces are injurious to both human as well as environmental health.

If used incorrectly, chrome as well as other substances including arsenic, lead and acids can infiltrate the local water supplies. This can cause several catastrophic consequences such as soil erosion, and water contamination, leading to health problems ranging from irritation of the mouth to more dire conditions like cancer and liver & kidney damage.

In order to mitigate these circumstances, many leather industry players are revisiting tanning methods used before the advent of chrome tanning, known as vegetable tanning, as ideal alternatives for leather processing. These processes involve the use of tanning chemicals that are derived from organic sources and do not generate heavy-metal byproducts.

Italian fashion brand ATP Atelier, for instances, uses leather derived from vegetable tanning in over 85% of its collection. The company has also introduced a new metal-free leather, called napa leather created by Frescopelli, an Italian tannery which has partnered with Kering to produce a new biodegradable substitute for chrome-tanned leather. The patent-pending material uses a technology based on an organic chemical which undergoes rapid decomposition, is non-polluting and aids the recycling of nearly 98% of the water consumed in the process.

Stahl is also making significant strides in this regard, with its Stahl Neo product line of sustainable tanning chemicals. These leather treatment chemicals can easily adapt to the existing applications and formulations, whilst ensuring that tanners can create leather materials market in a consistent, compliant and sustainable manner, paving the way for more future proof leather end products.
