Non-solvent based technology allows extrusion of TPU directly onto fabric

  • Very good haptic properties and wear resistance

  • Easy to dye and emboss

  • TPU coated synthetic leather makes car seats more comfortable Swiss Rolex Day Date Replica

  • Suzhou Ruigao New Material adopts new technology

Car seats can now be more comfortable thanks to synthetic leather made with BASF's thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) Elastollan. The synthetic leather is highly abrasion resistant and helps manufacturers meet the stringent volatile organic compound (VOC) standards for applications such as car seats and furniture.

In addition to being durable and wear resistant, synthetic leather made with Elastollan TPU is well suited for use in car seats and furniture due to its high mechanical performance.

Suzhou Ruigao New Material adopts new technology

Suzhou Ruigao New Material Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of synthetic leather, has adopted Elastollan grade B50A12CF in the production of synthetic leather in a Chinese automaker's latest model, due to its cost effective and environmentally friendly thermoplastic process in comparison with conventional processing technologies such as coagulation.

"Elastollan significantly simplifies and speeds up the production breitlingshow process of synthetic leather as it can be extruded onto fabric directly without a middle layer using a non-solvent based technology. This helps car makers meet the increasingly stringent VOC standards, especially for car interior applications," said Tony Jones, Head of Industrial, Performance Materials Asia Pacific, BASF.

Easy to dye and emboss

In addition, the TPU coated synthetic leather is well suited for use in car seats and furniture due to its high mechanical performance. This not only enables a soft, thin and flexible layer of material but also makes it easy to dye and emboss.
