At one of the tanneries specialists of Shebekinskaya industrialnaya khimiya, LLC (Russia) have conducted experimental trials of leather with higher thickness and split for safety shoes. Shebekinskaya industrialnaya khimiya, LLC products were used in dying-fatliquoring processes. To improve split quality the new product Evrosintan VA was used. It strengthens split fibre structure, improves buffing properties and provides short hair. Pielcolor (Spain) products were used in finishing of shoe article and split. The articles were positively assessed by tannery technicians and managers. We plan to conduct extended trials.
