Mimosa FS is an exceptionally light coloured, dedusted Mimosa powder, treated to be less astringent, highly soluble and having improved lightfastness. Mimosa FS delivers rapid tannin penetration, light shades and smooth grain. It is especially suited for the retannage of chrome leathers.
Mimosa FS is not recommended for pit tanning. However, it is ideal for drum tanning of full vegetable tanned leathers where it gives a light colour and pleasant feel. Up to 20% Mimosa FS can be used for full veg strap, case or bag leathers. Mimosa FS can also be used in conjunction with other Mimosa products such as Mimosa WS, Mimosa ME and Mimosa RG.
For retannage of chrome leather between 5% and 10% Mimosa FS is recommended.
For heavy vegetable retannage on chrome leather up to 15% Mimosa FS 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.
