The determination of the size of the moisture absorbing monolayer (Xm), the binding energy constants of the monolayer C and the multilayer K, the maximum absorption capacity at saturation X1 and the hysteresis (Hyst.) between absorption and desorption, enabled us to classify the different fatliquoring agents according to stage (crust-blue, finished-red) by applying factorial analysis (see following graph). Finishing is the factor that best explains this behavior. Finishing decreases the size of the monolayer and increases the binding energy constants. Fatliquoring decreases the maximum absorption capacity and hysteresis, partially affecting the reduction of the monolayer size.
