Application : Jktan FCBJ types can be used as bleach tanning agents for all types of vegetable tanned or retanned leather.  However, Jktan FCBJ3 is mostly preferred for bleaching EI leather while FCBJ4 is preferred for bleaching heavy leathers like Factory Sole leather, industrial leathers etc.  Depending on the conditions given bleaching can be effected in the drum or by dipping process or on the table.
Drum Bleaching : Light and medium weight leathers are drummed with 3-5% of Jktan FCBJ type and 100-150% of float at30oC until the desired bleach effect is attained followed by rinsing for five minutes in running water.

Factory sole leathers, which are to be retanned with extracts filling agents, are drummed until the extracts has been taken up completely penetration being promoted by introducing hot air.

DIP Bleaching : This is carried out in plastic tubs containing solutions of 70-100g. of the Jktan FCBJ type per litre of water.  The bleaching solution may be heated to 35-40oC.  The leathers to be bleached are immersed for a short period in the solution, given a short rinse, if required.  The bleaching solution can be used several times and can finally be added to other tan liquors.
Bleaching on Tables : Solutions containing 50 gm of Jktan FCBJ type per litre of water at 35oC are used for bleaching on tables.
