Saftee Acid question

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by Mink, Jul 1, 2008.

    I have been showing a friend the process of taxidermy from skinning to tanning to mounting. However, when I got to the tanning part, I was asked what exactly is in the Saftee Acid that I use. And, I really don't know. I did some research online, but came up with nothing. Does anyone have any idea as to what might be in it?
    Thanks for any information I can get.

    My guess is buffered sulphuric acid.

    Google, acid replacement technology
    Also ask your supplier for an MSDS sheet

    Looking at the MSDS from supplier. Under hazardous ingredients it says, "(Proprietary): Will be made known to a qualified health care professional in case of emergency." I have another document that says its a naturally occurring buffered acid that turns in to fertilizer after use (either photo or bio degrades). Thus the name Saftee Acid. To know more you would have to pry it from Bruce. ;)

    Felpy is probably the closest to describing Saftee Acid, but since it's a patented Acid (by the Manufacturer), it remains a proprietary formula.
