Miscible with water in all proportions
An Organic Sulphur Compound, Wetting Agent and a Bactericide.
Poplix BW accelerates the soaking and liming process of both salted and dried raw hides and skins and provides adequate protection against bacterial damage which may occur during soaking
Accelerates the soaking process by its good wetting properties.
Prevents from bacteria growth even in prolonged soaking process.
The effect of soaking enzymes is not affected.
It exerts a particularly active effect on soluble proteins, blood and grease residues.
Application : Salted raw hides and skins are presoaked to remove the dirt and then depending on the both length and the soaking time, they are soaked in a fresh both containing 0.3- 0.7% Poplix BW and about 0.3-0.5% Soda Ash calculated on the salted weight. The temperature of the both depends on the soaking time and should generally be maintained at 25-30ºC
Salt Cured Hides
In pre-soaking ---------- 0.2-0.3%
In Main soaking ----------- 0.2-0.4%
In pre-soaking ---------- 0.3-0.5%
In Main soaking ----------- 0.4-0.7%
