Glove leather should be soft and flexible so that fingers and palms do not experience any resistance during their movement application. . Glove leathers, at the same time, should have reasonably good strength with smooth surfaces and must not contain any hazardous chemicals which is harmful to human skin. To achieve these properties very careful selection of raw materials and proper selection are necessary.
Non tainted leather absorbs moisture from the atmosphere and causes trouble like the growth of mould and fungi. So, increasing the interfacial tension between leather fibres and water and thus reducing or almost completely eliminating the wet ability with water by depositing water-repellents in the leather substance.
The basic characteristic of eco-friendly leather is that it will be environment friendly , it will be Chromium VI and metal free, it will be free from all toxic substance as per REACH norms, it will be quick bio-degradable. To make eco-friendly leather we can reduce the BOD, COD and TDS also.
