MIMOSA ME POWDER
A natural soluble dedusted extract. It is uniform in quality (minimum tannin content of 66%), light in colour, easily soluble in water, but best dissolved in warm water using mechanical means such as stirring or drumming. Mimosa ME powder (also sold under our Osprey brand) can be used for all types of leather, in pits, drums or tanning machines.
MIMOSA MS POWDER
This is a lighter coloured Mimosa (Wattle) Extract compared to the standard ME brand. The special bleaching process gives no increase in inorganic salts. The low salt content makes Mimosa MS ideal for closed pit tanning operations but will also give all the good filling/firmness properties of standard Mimosa Extract and is hence also fine for drum tanning processes where lighter coloured veg leather is required.
MIMOSA GS POWDER
A very light coloured, dedusted powder produced from specially selected fresh bark. The extract solution is also chemically treated to lighten the colour. Leather tanned with Mimosa GS has a very light colour. It is recommended for vegetable leather tannages and retannages of chrome leather where a particularly pale shade is required.
MIMOSA FS POWDER
An exceptionally light coloured, dedusted Mimosa powder, specially treated by chemical means to produce less astringency, high solubility and improved lightfastness. It is suitable for the tannage of hides and skins where very rapid tannin penetration and light colour is required, with the benefit of smooth grain. It is ideal for combination tannages and retannage of chrome leathers.
MIMOSA WS POWDER
This is a light coloured dedusted Mimosa powder specially modified by chemical hydrolysis to reduce astringency of the tanning down to a minimum; very quick tannin penetration results. Mimosa WS is used as a pretannage of all types of vegetable leathers before the main vegetable tannage; no pretanning syntans are required.
MIMOSA RG POWDER
A light coloured dedusted Mimosa powder which has been resinified to produce extra filling properties on vegetable and chrome retanned leathers. It gives a firmer retan leather with fuller flanks and tighter break. It is recommended for drum tannages or retannages of vegetable and chrome leathers where pale coloured/better filled leather is required. Increased yield is possible when some Mimosa RG is used in sole leather filling operations.
Low astringent extract with good light fast and heat resistant properties ideal for the manufacture of upholstery and automotive leathers.
Light coloured and low astringent extract with improved light fast properties. Imparts excellent filling and is suited for leathers requiring embossing where it facilitates print retention. Suitable for the re-tanning of upholstery and automotive leathers.
A vegetable-synthetic re-tanning agent with high dispersing properties. Ideal for re-tanning shoe upper leathers and is specially suited for compact re-tanning processes where it can be used as a stand-alone re-tanning agent.
A full vegetable re-tanning agent with high dispersing and exceptional filling properties. Ideally suited for the re-tanning of shoe leathers especially for those emptier / looser raw materials.
