New Corilenes from Stahl
Feb '10
An outstanding range of six new Corilene fatliquors announced by Stahl represents the latest in wet-end economy. They combine sustainability, efficiency and flawlessness to produce really soft leathers meeting current fashion needs across the leather industry and across the world. Between them they cover so many possibilities that one or more of them can nearly always be used to advantage in the production of a huge variety of leathers.

CORILENE HLG is highly recommended for fatliquoring double faced leathers at all stages of production either alone or in combination with Corilene SIT. It may also be used for brush fatliquoring of fur and exotic skins. Other invaluable uses include the wetting back of crust leather, the improvement of buffing properties and the production of excellent non-greasy lustre effects on suede. The result in all leather and double face applications is a beautiful soft, mild elastic handle. Another particularly valuable benefit is the use of Corilene HLG as a stabiliser both in unstable fatliquor mixtures to stimulate through fatliquoring and on a wide variety of hides and skins in the pickling and chrome tanning bath where its very good acid and electrolyte stability creates uniform and deep softness.

Developing this idea still further, Stahl has gone on to produce an invaluable fog-optimised version, CORILENE SLG. Its main use is in pickling when it disperses natural grease, especially when applied to greasy hides or heavy skins; and for something rather different, it is also strongly recommended for use on New Zealand sheepskins. Other uses include double face production in tanning baths and for ensuring even chrome dispersion and uniform softness throughout the skins so that there is no off-putting hard backbone.

Corilene SLG is, therefore, an important product for not only dispersing natural grease but also binding on the fibre to give a deep softness while at the same time preventing spew formation which can seriously spoil the look of hides and skins.

If outstanding softness with a pleasant waxy touch is required, then CORILENE SIT is the answer. It is ideal for use on leather destined for high quality furniture, for garments and for gloves where it will produce delightful softly milled leather with a highly uniform grain, or where it can be used in the production of superb shoe suede leather. Stability of the product in almost all tannery environments, especially typical salt concentrations and hard water, is a valuable asset. So too is its ability to be used either as a sole fatliquor for achieving deep penetration and good absorption or for using in combination with other Corilene products.

A further development of this line of thought is CORILENE FM-SIT, a fog-optimised version with comparable properties but low fogging value. Corilene FM-SIT will be used as a sole fatliquor for chrome and chrome-free automobile leathers when it ensures excellent softness, superb fullness and a round, waxy handle.
