Mimosa RG is a unique extract which has been specially modified to increase its molecular size. Mimosa RG has exceptional filling properties, delivering a leather with fuller flanks and tighter break. Mimosa RG is highly recommended for both vegetable tannages and retannages of chrome leather, where emptier or looser raw material is used. When used in the sole leather process, Mimosa RG increases yields.
For vegetable tannage of sole, strap, case, harness and bridle leathers, between 10% and 15% Mimosa RG can be used in the re-tanning process.
Mimosa RG can also be used in conjunction with other Mimosa products such as Mimosa WS, Mimosa FS and Mimosa ME in the tanning process.
For retannage of chrome leather between 5% and 10% Mimosa RG is recommended.
For heavy vegetable retannage on chrome leather up to 15% Mimosa RG is recommended.
