Mimosa ELEPHANT GS
Mimosa Elephant GS is a very light coloured de-dusted powder produced from specially selected fresh bark. The extract is treated to lighten the colour. The pale beige that results is ideal for vegetable tannage or chrome retannage where a particularly pale shade is required.
Mimosa Elephant GS is not recommended for pit tannages. However, it is ideally suited for full vegetable tanning where a very light coloured leather is required. Up to 30% Mimosa Elephant GS can be used. For the tannage of E.I. skins 25% Mimosa Elephant GS is used.
Mimosa Elephant GS can be used in conjunction with other Mimosa products like Mimosa ME or Mimosa RG to adjust the shade of the leather.
For retannage on wet blue between 5% and 10% Mimosa Elephant GS is recommended.
THE WORLD’S BEST
Mimosa extract is a very versatile tanning compound and can be used for tannage on its own or in combination with other tanning compounds. There are many speciality types of leather produced by combining Mimosa extract with other chemicals, such as chrome or organic tanning compounds, in pre-tannages or re-tannages.
