Innovative, high quality and safe retanning

With our Safetan range offer the opportunity to produce top quality leather that meets all applicable requirements and restrictions.

Safetan philosophy

Smit wants to be a reliable and valuable partner for tanneries and their customers. We have the ambition to supply answers to increasing challenges that tanners are facing. One of these challenges is meeting the ever increasing requirements in the field of product safety. Meeting these challenges while using existing chemicals often looks like a balancing act around the edges of safety and health requirements. The risk of producing off spec leathers is considerable.
