The XK-TB leather preservative is often added in the last stage of leather tanning to preserve leather from microbial and fungal growth. This highly effective oil-based preservative has low toxicity and contains no phenols or solvents that are harmful to the environment. Being a liquid biocide with bactericidal additives, it is fully absorbed by the leather to prevent long-term deterioration.
