Easy White, which is started to be used as a new technology in the leather processing, is a completely natural, chromium- free tanning method.
This newly developed tanning method offers numerous benefits by helping to meet the growing needs for chromium-free leather processing. The Easy White leather processing method unlike the other chromium-free processing methods does not cause any decrease in the quality and in the usefulness of the leather. Together with this new system it is possible to make the tanning process more efficient by reducing the duration of the leather tanning.
In the leather which was produced by using the Easy White technology in contrast to the classic leather tanning methods where 6 different tanning chemicals are used, only 1 eco-friendly tanning chemical is used. The chemical substance used in the Easy White technology is a non-toxic material. There are no chromium, alkali and acid. When using this technology during the leather processing, the rate of the waste water is reduced by 50%, while the amount of salt in the waste water is reduced by 80%. While using the Easy White technology the duration of the leather processing is reduced. In this way, due to the less amount of electricity used in the production it provides positive contribution to the environment. The leathers which were produced by using the Easy White Technology are pearl white, soft and extremely smooth. At the same time, while in terms of resistance they are at the same level with the leathers produced by other tanning methods, with their up to 70 C degrees washability feature they can be distinguished from the others. Easy White is an ecological and environmentally sensitive system. It does not contain any chemicals which are harmful to the human health. During the leather tanning process substances such as Formaldehyde and Chrome IV are not used. As Erdoğan Leather; with our structure that is open for innovation, we started our extensive R &D work on this technology. As a result of our research related to the use of this technology during the treatment process of our fur products we succeeded in making a hair colour that does not contain harmful substances like benzoin. The researches relevant to suede dyeing are being continued. As the pilot manufacturer of the Easy White Technology in Turkey which was developed by the Clariant Company we sent the first produced samples to our customers in Europe who are producing footwear. The very positive feedback we received made us to do more work on this technology. This technology which was started to be used in the fur and leather shoes by the ECCO company will direct the footwear and leather industry in the coming periods.
The Easy White sheepskin is recommended for use in shoes which inner lining contacts directly with the body, in health related shoes and in baby shoes. This product which was developed by considering the human health is likely to be mandatory for all the sectors which are relevant to leather in the future.
