View Categories


Damage caused by microorganisms costs the global leather industry tens of millions of dollars in revenue each year. Hide and skin suppliers and tanners are well aware that they need to use microbicide products to protect their valuable raw material; but, how do you measure performance, and how do you confirm that the products added are optimized for your process?

"It is when things go wrong that you really understand the value of working with a company that has a good understanding of microbicides and how best to use them."

A Buckman Microorganism Control Program is the global benchmark for performance and comprises three basic elements:

  • Optimization of Process: Selection of the right product, at the right dosage, and applied in the right part of the process.
  • Monitoring of Performance: Measurements to confirm the uptake of the active substance and compatibility with the processing environment.
  • Stewardship of Product: To ensure the safe use of potentially hazardous chemicals within prevailing regulatory guidelines.

Product Range: Over 40 products containing different active substances in a range of concentrations to meet all needs. Products are expertly formulated to obtain optimal distribution in processing. On-site methods and laboratory techniques are then used to measure performance, ensuring reliable results.
