Technical Data

E-Leather has been tested extensively to determine the ultimate
performance of the material. This confirms a factor of safety as
high as 5 times above the specifications for some products.

Designed and developed to overcome the weaknesses of
traditional leather and textiles, E-Leather is engineered to
provide a range of materials that meet specific performance criteria.
