Chrome tanning is a process in which hides are treated with chromium (III) salts and is considered to be the most common form of tanning due to its fast process. Chromium-tanned hides are tinged with blue in their raw state and referred to as “wet-blue.” The chromium stabilizes the leather by cross linking the collagen fibers. Chromium salts, especially chrome alum and chromium(III) sulfate, are used in chromium-tanning of leather.
The color of chrome-tanned leather remains uniform and does not develop a patina as quickly as vegetable-tanned leather. It does not have the leather smell that is characteristic of vegetable-tanned leather, and instead often has a chemical smell.
Uses of Inorganics chemicals in Chrome Tanning
The chrome-tanning agent contains 33% basic chromium sulphate and 26% chromium (III) oxide. Chromium tanned leather can contain between 4 and 5% of chromium, which is tightly bound to the proteins.
