Decades of experience led Cromochim to produce a unique high-quality chromium liquor.

Cromobase is obtained by redox reaction of sodium dichromate with glucose in acid medium for sulphuric acid. We mix both advanced and traditional manufacturing techniques to produce basic trivalent chromium sulphate which is appreciated by the most well known tanneries worldwide.

The quality of the delivered Cromobase is guaranteed by the continuous monitoring of raw materials, manufacturing process and final product.

100% Made in Italy, our product is also related to tanning innovation, as its liquid state allows the operator to receive it, stock it and later on to put it in the liming drum without being handled and/or inhaled.

This “organic chrome” gives the leather a particular smooth and filling effect, as well as long-lasting properties, hardly found in other types of chrome. We produce Cromobase at different concentrations (% Cr2 O3) and basicity (°Sch) thanks to batch processing and multiple storage tanks.
