Field of application

It is ideally suitable during pre-tanning, retanning and main tanning of all kinds of leathers. Also used in wet white processing along with other tanning agents.



  • ideal for the production of sheep, goat and lamb skins
  • used in the pre-tanning, it results in full, mellow and round handle
  • applied in the pre-tannage, it brings a homogeneous distribution of natural fats
  • increases the shrinkage temperature of pickled pelts
  • improves the dye properties, especially the dye leveling



      In the pre-tannage Ebotan DOX will improve the main tanning agent penetration. For depickled and degreasing pickled sheepskins between 2 % and 4 % Ebotan DOX are recommended. In rechroming between 1 % - 3 % Ebotan DOX will improve the chrome exhaustion and improve the penetration and washing properties. In the retannage of vegetable tanned leathers Ebotan DOX increases the hydrothermal stability.

      Percentage is based on shaved weight.
