ZOUTMAN offers salt for hide treatment with perfectly aligned grains, stable moisture content and a minimum amount of impurities (stones, shells, etc). SALCO 0-1 is also available with BORAX (salt with additional borax at 2% - 3%). This type of salt is suitable for very delicate animal hides, such as sheepskins, lambskins and calfskins.

SALCO, our technical or industrial salt, has various applications. Among other things, it is used as drilling salt on oil rigs or for refining at oil refineries. On the other hand, industrial salt is also used in fish processing or fishery and for hide treatment. In fishery, the salt is used to cure fish. In hide treatment, the hides are covered with several kilos of salt for hide treatment to remove the moisture and kill the bacteria.

Application

Before animal hides can be processed into a high-quality end product, they need to be treated with salt. A large quantity of salt is sprinkled onto the pre-cleaned animal hide. The salt absorbs moisture, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, from the hide. Furthermore, salt prevents deterioration, which means the hide will remain in a good condition. The high purity of the salt for hide treatment is exceptionally effective against the deterioration process. This is good for the end product. It is important that you choose a pure and high-quality salt for hide treatment. SALCO 0-1 (available with BORAX) is primarily used for delicate animal hides (such as sheepskins, lambskins and calfskins).
