Xlerator is a 100% active compound for improving cure rate by maximising salt absorption in the allotted curing time. It improves brine uptake and deodorizes brine, leaving a clean smell. As an added benefit, this product acts as a hide conditioner and extends the storage life of cured hides. It also removes fold marks from previously cured and bundled hides. All ingredients are environmentally safe, non-hazardous and biodegradable.
Xlerator has now been improved to increase the amount of brine that the hide absorbs in an average cure time of 12-18 hours in the raceway. ‘The added increase in brine saturation experienced by our customers is having a profound impact on the quality in hides cured with the new formula,’ said Mark Swanson, Birko’s Chief Executive Officer.

Xlerator is available in 55-gallon drums or totes. Hide curing with this product requires only 1/3 gallon per 100-fleshed hides, or ½ gallon per 100 unfleshed hides.
