MeteoDegrease is a leather degreasing enzyme to be used in leather beam-house processes. MeteoDegrease is specially designed for degreasing of skins and hides. It specifically removes the insoluble fatty substances. The lipase enzyme present in MeteoDegrease disperses fatty substances and oils, enhancing re-hydration and removal of adipose tissue. MeteoDegrease is a ready-to-use formulation of enzyme and other ingredients for high-performance degreasing, improving fat dispersion and removal, giving uniform colour and improved dye uptake. It also increases tear and tensile of strength of the finished leather. MeteoDegrease can be used either in soaking, liming or prior to or after bating. MeteoDegrease reduces chemical consumption and water effluent problems. MeteoDegrease can reduce or even eliminate the need of surfactants or solvents.
