Mimosa RN has similar properties to Mimosa RG, with a slightly larger molecular size, delivering a natural yellow/brown colour. Mimosa RN enhances filling properties, delivering firm, full flanked leather.
Recommended for drum tannage or retannage, Mimosa RN increases yields when added to sole leather filling operations. It is recommended to increase the running time by at least 20% to ensure penetration for the ideal end result.
For vegetable tannage of sole, strap, case, harness and bridle leathers, between 10% and 15% Mimosa RN can be used in the re-tanning process.
Mimosa RN 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 RN is recommended.
For heavy vegetable retannage on chrome leather up to 15% Mimosa RN 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.
