Quilon, Zaclons Chromium+3/Fatty Acid Release Treatments, are used routinely to impart water or stain resistance to tanned side leather or suede. In addition, Quilon treated leather has been shown to have improved lubricity and dimensional stability. For instance, the upper leather of shoes that have been Quilon treated has more resistance to water and or perspiration. Similarly, suede can be treated with Quilon to improve dry cleanability. Garments made from suede that have been treated with Quilon will retain their color and natural softness through repeated dry cleanings. Quilon can be applied either at the fatliquoring stage, where the Quilon will be applied at 10%-40% concentration or in the post fat liquoring stage using a 6%-10% Quilon C or M solution. Quilon is produced from 100% Chromium +3, the safe and essential nutrient form of Chromium.
