Trumpler, a leader in leather chemicals, has collaborated with Archroma to develop a groundbreaking leather tanning production process that can be used to produce sustainable leather in an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way.
Another innovative brand comes to life in the leather tanning industry.DyTan®, the new process combines innovations from Archroma and Trumpler to offer an alternative to existing metal-free and chrome-tanned leather. It enables the reliable production of leather with impeccable shavability, excellent colour depth and outstanding migration and abrasion resistance. Free from metal salts and reactive aldehydes, DyTan® is suitable for a wide range of leather applications, from garment and footwear to automotive and furniture upholstery, for today’s eco-conscious leather producers and consumers.
AVICUERO® System, which is based on novel molecules that enable more sustainable leather tanning and dyeing, developed by Archroma in cooperation with leather technology consultant Dr Leather. It enables collagen fibers in the leather to be covalently cross-linked through a simplified process at low temperatures. As a result, the system shows strong potential to save energy and water, while also reducing process time and CO2 emissions by up to 23%.
“Our collaboration with Archroma has made it possible to rethink traditional methods of leather production and to develop a pioneering alternative,” explains Hein Vugs, Managing Director of the Trumpler Group. “Our vision is to lead the leather industry to a more consciously sustainable future without compromising on quality or efficiency. With DyTan® and AVICUERO®, we are proud not only to achieve our ecological goals, but also to enable our customers to realize noticeable cost savings.”
“With the aim of bringing a new state-of-the-art solution to the leather industry, Archroma and Trumpler share a commitment to innovation, sustainability and customer satisfaction,” Mark Garrett, Archroma Group CEO, says. “Leveraging the AVICUERO® System, the new DyTan® process represents a significant milestone in the history of leather production, bringing remarkable operational and end-use benefits to help uplift the industry as a whole.”
As an exclusive global partner of Archroma, the Trumpler Group is responsible for the distribution of the AVICUERO® System worldwide. Delivering technical support and first-class customer care, Trumpler will help leather manufacturers and brands to implement sustainable tanning and draw on its comprehensive product portfolio and process knowledge of tanning, retanning and fatliquoring processes.
