Hide Salts

Industrial salt is used for the traditional preservation and preparation of animal hides in tanneries and in the leather-processing industry. The fresh hides are treated with hide salt before further processing. The salt has an antibacterial and a dehydrating effect and protects the animal hide from decay.

Our coarse natural industrial rock salt is perfect for use on a fresh animal hide due to its high flowability and spreadability.

esco special hide salt also guarantees a particularly even distribution and good adhesion to the animal hide as a special wet preparation with sodium carbonate.
