Storage stability:
Can be stored for about 1 year (from date of production) if kept in a cool,
dry place. In any case protect from heat above 35°C.
Electrolyte stability: Very good, suitable for all wet end procedures.
Effect on leather colour: Slight shade weakening effect.
SELLASOL® SF combines a deep and uniform neutralizing with a gentle
fibre-opening effect in order to achieve very soft and lightweight leather
articles with a very uniform milling effect (especially floater types).
SELLASOL® SF is applied to wet-blue and wet white leather from bovine
hides, goatskins & sheepskins.
SELLASOL® SF is excellent for the wetting back of dried out wet-blue and
split materials.
SELLASOL® SF has a dispersing effect which improves the penetration of
subsequently applied retanning agents and dyes.
In general 4 to 6% SELLASOL® SF (calculated on the shaved weight) is
applied in the neutralizing stage at temperatures of approx. 35 - 40°C.
SELLASOL® SF can be applied in combination with common neutralizing
agents like sodium bicarbonate when higher pH values are required.
In wetting back of wet-blue and split material it is recommended to use
SELLASOL® SF in combination with CORIPOL® fatliquors.
