Field of application

Ebotan GA is a metal-free organic tanning agent for chrome-free, veg-tanned and wet-white articles. It can also be used as a pre-tanning agent for all kind of leathers.



  • excellent penetration which results in better tanning properties such as tear strength and grain elasticity.
  • improved quality when used in the pretannage.
  • in semi-chrome leathers, it gives full, tight and soft leathers.

      The result of application depends strongly on the pH-value. It is important to control the pH value in the process vessel at the time of applying Ebotan GA.
