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 more than 40 years.


We prefer certainty

Strict quality controls guarantee products of the ­highest quality. For example, all of our chrome ­tanning agents are free of chromium(VI). We guarantee this with regular tests in our own internal lab and in external certified laboratories.
