Field of application

Ebotan BAE is a masked self-basifying agent for chrome tannage. The application of this product leads to a slow and gentle increase of the pH during the basification.



  • low solubility which provides a slow pH value increase
  • uniform color, smooth and tight grain
  • resulting wetblue has a high shrinkage temperature



      After addition of the product, we recommend a running time of at least 8 hours for uniform uptake of the chrome and the completion of basification.
