Application areas


Hide salt special is ideal for the traditional preservation and preparation of cow, calf and pig skin as well as sheep skins. The excess water is removed from skins by using hide salt. The salt also has an antibacterial effect and protects the hides from decay. These quality characteristics benefit the suitability of storage and ensure the best possible preparation for the tanning process. Industrial salt is an important element in drilling fluids primary used in the exploration and extraction of crude oil and natural gas. The use of industrial salt is suitable for the stabilisation of the borehole as well as the lubrication and cooling of the drilling head. In the refining process of petroleum products—e.g. in the Merox process—industrial salt is applied in the filtration of the final product.

Magnesium sulphate anhydrous and epsom salt make leather suppler. They also play a role in tannin-based bonding and increase weight.
