Field of application

Lanolin fatliquor which is used for shoe upper leather, with outstanding grain firmness and fullness, as well as remarkable physical resistance (particularly tear resistance). It can also be used for full vegetable burnish in order to enhance dye brilliancy, polishability and glaceblend.



  • very good filling properties
  • reduces water absorbance
  • improves the grain resistance
  • avoids grain cracking after heavy retanning
  • excellent grain lubrication
  • marked effect



    Licrol L is used in combination with other Licrols for the production of shoe upper leather. It can also be used in the hot-air stuffing drum.
