We are excited to introduce you to our new tannery products from Advanced Tanning Solutions. These products have been developed by Dale Knobloch, an industry pioneer not only in chemistry products, but as an awarding winning taxidermist and sculptor. See the History and Mission page for additional information on Dale and our company.
Dale has worked for more than 3 years developing our new tannery products and they have been carefully and thoroughly tested in-house as well as by outside leading taxidermists and tanneries. This rigorous testing process, plus the use of a combination of new raw materials makes them the most advanced products on the market today.
Each product is developed to be compatible with each other unless otherwise noted.
Our tannery products are available in larger volumes to qualified fur dressers and tanneries and are sold by the pound. The products are available in 5 gallon containers and 55 gallon drums. Call or email for current prices and/or to place an order, 303.642.3060 or email@example.com

This is a NEW unique product formulation! A highly active and fast penetrating aluminum-based powder that will pickle and tan hides/skins in one bath. Will not cake or harden and easily dissolves in hot water. TanX AL-6 is treated to prevent acid deterioration – a common issues with other alum tans. It has excellent fixation to the leather while providing softness, stretch and great hair setting ability. TanX AL-6 eliminates hair curling, makes shaving quicker, easier and smoother.
Works by osmosis, allowing it to be used in a static bath or a wet wheel. See directions below for full treatment.
Detergents & Degreasing Agents
Concentrated detergent with degreasing ability. Developed specifically for commercial hair-on tanning. Stable with electrolytes, it can be used in the rehydration, pickle and/or tanning baths. Detergent ML-40 is safe and easy to use.
A highly active solvent based, aqueous degreasing agent. It can be used in it’s own bath or added to the rehydration bath. Excellent for degreasing extremely greasy hides/skins such as bear, beaver, muskrats, fish, etc.
A unique fatliquor that contains a high fat content, yet still stable in a high electrolyte solution. Aids in overall softness of the skin and makes shaving easier. Fatliquor Ultra does not contain neutral oils that can migrate or leach out during rehydration of the hides or skins. Helps the hides and skins move more freely in the wet wheel and avoids tangling.
Fatliquor HC has all the same softness and easy shaving properties as the Fatliquor Ultra, but also contains a hair conditioner. This is great for coarse, dry hides and skins.
