Tileather – Eco-friendly leather tanned with titanium
Actually, chromium (III) is the most popular technology used tanning agent in the leather industry; chromium (VI), the carcinogenic form, has dramatic consequences on the environment and human health. Chromium is considered as a source of pollution due to the large volumen of exhausted residual tanning floats and solid waste produced.
The titanium tanning is an alternative technique that eliminates the 100% of the chromium and gives the final leather similar properties to those obtained from chromium tanning and reduce the environmental impact.

INCUSA became interested in titanium due to the benefits derived from its properties, such as biocompatibility with human tissues, innocuousness (hypoallergenic), biodegradability, lightness and strength.
As a result of the development of INCUSA’s titanium tannage, it has been possible to obtain eco-friendly leathers tanned with titanium, register under the name SANOTAN. These leathers follow the demanding quality specifications and have advantages as comfort improvement and flame retardant properties.
The main objective of the Tileather project is to introduce into the European market leather produced using environmentally friendly titanium-tanning techniques, which has been registered by INCUSA as SANOTAN® leather. Through this novel process, chromium salts are replaced.
