blend of non-ionic surfactants and emulsifiers


colourless, transparent liquid

pH - value (1:10)

6.0 - 8.0




highly stable to acids and salts under usual tannery conditions, stable in chrome liquors


in warm and cold water in any concentration

Field of application

Degreasing of bated and pickled pelts with high content of natural fat.



  • excellent degreasing properties for sheep, pig and goat skins
  • enables the even distribution and absorption of the chrome tannage
  • improves the evenness of the dyeing



      Neopalin E achieves the best degreasing effect without any float. Bated pelts are degreased after fleshing. Pickled pelts are warmed up prior to degreasing in a brine of 35 °C. The pelts are drummed for 60-90 minutes without float with necessary quantities. The dissolved and emulsified fat is removed by scouring in 200 % - 300 % water (35 °C). In order to avoid acid swelling, pickled pelts have to be washed with brine.
