Hyde-Tech Leather is 5 times more durable than traditional leather. Its face consists of 70% leather, 15% cotton and 15% polyurethane paints and its backing is made from 90% leather fibers and 10% glue (percentages may vary slightly per production). This composition produces a material that out performs traditional leather, faux leather and fabrics. It is also much more durable, is resistant to tearing, has greater elasticity, illustrates excellent flame retardancy, is easy to clean and has no natural defects, which allows Hyde-Tech Leather to maintain consistency in both color and grain.
A typical tannery produces 2.9 tonnes of waste per 1 tonne of leather, 30% of which is made up of leather shavings and trimmings. We purchase these off-cuts and mill them so finely they form the core of other stronger and more durable materials. The entire production process is 100% carbon neutral. We use high-pressure water jets to force the recycled leather fibers through an integral textile reinforcement core. It’s a process that has major environmental advantages over traditional leather and conventional bonded leather. We use no harsh chemicals and have a continuous closed-looped system recycling 95% of used water.
Hyde-Tech Leather reduces both ownership and operating costs. It has a 90% cutting yield and is supplied on rolls 1.4m (55”) wide. It is 40 – 50% lighter than traditional leather, reducing customer logistics expenses and fuel costs within the transportation industry. Hyde-Tech Leather typically has between 4 – 5 times the serviceable life of traditional leather, looking and feeling better for longer.
Hyde-Tech Leather is built to last. In the unlikely event that it doesn’t, we offer a very generous 4 year warranty, covering: cracking and peeling; excessive stretching; rips or tears; stains from human and pet saliva, urine, stomach fluid, blood and household food and beverages.
