Drying

The Drying Production Stage covers the drying of the leather. All Leather Example Materials share several common Drying process options. The plant-based materials category has no process options for this Production Stage, as all impacts are included in previous Production Stages.

  • Leather hang drying is the default selection. The process covers hang drying, including stretching and clamping.
  • Drying Kind Leather {Asiatan} (impact contained in tanning stage) should be selected only when using Kind Leather from Asiatan that includes tanning, re-tanning, drying, and finishing. When selecting this process, it should be paired with the “Kind Leather {Asiatan}, (includes tanning, re-tanning, drying, and finishing)” process in the Tanning stage.
  • Drying {PrimeAsia} (impact contained in tanning stage) should be selected only when using Finished Leather from PrimeAsia that includes tanning, re-tanning, drying, and finishing. This process applies to both: Finished leather, from Steers (US and Australia) {PrimeAsia}, and Finished leather, from South American raw hides {PrimeAsia}.
  • Drying, reptile leather is the default process selection for reptile leather and should only be selected when drying reptile leather.
