Setting A New Standard...
PRO-1 is passionately dedicated to exploring & developing the highest performing products in the industry. It would not be a wise investment
to manufacture products that offer nothing of distinguishing value, with so many competitive brands on the market.
We are definitively commited to "processes that incorporate traditional tanning philosophy, through the use of new & innovative technology" -
we will not jeopardize performance for the sake of marketing - we are dedicated not only to the highest quality of products, but the efficiency
of application. Anything less is not PRO-1.

THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CORRECTION IN TANNING
Please see REDUCED SALT PICKLING - ensuring COMPLETE PROCESSING & providing HIGHER QUALITY...                       
significant information for all pickling - especially for salt-cured skins...
New Standard for Tanning!                      
Summary: Pickling w/ 1 lb. salt / gallon of pickle will leave RAW spots due to too much salt "shutting down fiber"...pickling
w/ 1/2 lb. salt / gallon of pickle allows fiber to "stay open & absorb the acid". If pickling skins raw, then yes, use 1 lb. salt / gallon...
BUT, for all salt-cured skins, use 1/2 lb. salt / gallon...the fiber will stay open = more efficient pickling & tanning.

Note: the single biggest mistake in taxidermy - salt a whitetail cape overnight, rinse it off & throw it in a pickle w/ 1 lb. salt / gallon...
the fiber is closed from the salting & WILL NOT open completely in the pickle...however, process it in a pickle w/ only 1/2 lb. salt / gallon &
THE FIBER WILL OPEN / HYDRATION WILL COMPLETE...open fiber accepts the acid & pickling is the foundation to tanning.
You want tight hair? - pickle correctly...process all salt-cured skins into a "reduced-salt" pickle.
WE HAVE TANNERIES THAT HAVE SWITCHED & ARE NOW UTILIZING ONLY 1/2 LB. SALT / GALLON OF PICKLE...
THEY REPORT THE RESULTS TO BE A NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE & IMPROVEMENT.

Note: In our efforts to provide the very best tanning systems available, we are constantly testing & analyzing products / processes.
          If the end result produces added value, we will implement "revisions to the existing process".
          These revisions will generally be only small tweaks in existing process & not significant changes.
          Please keep up w/ the web site Guides on a periodic basis for such revisions.
