African skins & Formaldhyde

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by nts2010, Jan 23, 2013.

  1. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to determine wether a hide has been treated with formaldehyde ? We ( a freind & I ) have some african tanned capes that wont rehydrate to a mountable condition , after a month in a rehydration bath they are still tight with a dry feel and very fast to retract if you stretch them , eg, a 55" kudu with a neck that measures 22 " ! Any thoughts ?
