Tanning Agents – Leather, as good as it gets

Customers from all over the world


Tear-proof, non-fading and long-lasting – the tanning process is an important step in the process of pro­ducing quality leather. Some 400,000 tons of chrome tanning agents are needed around the world each year. Alkaline chrome tanning agents are used in around 80% of the world’s leather production.

We at VOELPKER have been supplying the leather industry with this base substance for almost 50 years.
