November 2, 2016 – Tapis Corporation is pleased to announce that its Ultraleather product has been selected as the standard synthetic leather for use on Lift by EnCore’s B737 Tourist Class Seating.
According to Tapis, constructing seat covers using an engineered product such as Ultraleather allows for more consistency and greater ease of use during the cutting and sewing process than with conventional leathers. Additionally, such a product provides consistent yield, color, weight and quality.
Ultraleather’s Takumi construction provides a balance of comfort, quality, durability and weight, and is manufactured using proprietary technology to create a four-layer, high-performance fabric. This process does not use adhesives or bonding agents, creating a durable product and eliminating the risk of delamination.
Ultraleather can be engineered to achieve customer-specific requirements, including custom grains, colors, finishes and technical specifications. The gloss level, weight, breathability and thickness can be adjusted, and enhanced inherent properties incorporated such as enhanced ink and stain protection for seating applications. This custom process has the unique ability to resist the toughest stains, including denim dye transfer and Ink.
