Known to be linked with the protein skin, the disintegration of melanin during the manufacturing process can be achieved by oxidizing and reducing agents. Also, there is the use of suitable enzymes to accomplish this degradation process.
Given the type of matter present in the melanin layers like the glycans components, the removal can be also be made possible as a result of the action of a substance called Xylanase.
This xylanase substance is classified as catalytic due to its activity and nature, which is being owed to its double-placement mechanism. The material hydrolyzes the xylose, which is the source of Xylanase.
During the opening of the fiber for Melanin removal, it is discovered that there is a presence of amylase which assist the Xylanase during production and serves as a similar mechanism. Both mechanisms must work together to separate the protein and carbohydrate linkages while catalyzing the hydrolysis linkages of glycans.
However, these removal processes mostly result in poor condition of the surface, and expert knowledge is imperative in assuring a tidy and excellent production process. Due to the environmental Pollution and hazard that leather making can impose, ecological regulation has insisted that leather industries must adopt cleaner, safer, and greener means.
Also, adopting computer hypothesis and approach, other enzymes for the pre-tanning process are being taken into consideration, and these processes reach a success rate of 0.5% for total melanin removal. The fiber opening sequence reads at 0.3%.
Hardiston stores adopt only the best quality of leather for every product available to ensure the much-needed quality in all products.
