PERFORMANCE
TECHNOLOGIES

ALL OUR LEATHERS ARE DESIGNED TO BE FIT FOR PURPOSE. WE COMBINE THE NATURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF LEATHER WITH INNOVATIVE TANNING PROCESSES AND TECHNOLOGIES.

OUR TECHNOLOGIES

Exclusive leather technologies that enhance
leather’s natural advantages.

WATERPROOF TECHNOLOGY

Developed for military and outdoor footwear Aquashield provides water resistance whilst maintaining high levels of breathability and enhanced moisture management properties. Under extreme conditions there is less than 10% uptake of moisture.

ABRAISION RESISTANCE

Duratek is a novel nano-technology that provides high abrasion resistance. It bonds permanently to the leather to enhance the life of the product and yet does not affect colour, performance, softness or feel.

FIBRE ENHANCEMENT

Increase the thickness of kangaroo leather by an additional 0.1-0.2mm. Fusion is a patented coating system that produces a breathable, porous membrane that can be easily roughed and bonded during shoe production.

COLOUR-LOCK TECHNOLOGY

Perfect for products using un-lined leather Hifast dyes are colour fast with zero colour migration or staining. Leather still remains breathable, has a high perspiration resistance and will handle repeated washing.

THERMO-CAMOUFLAGE

Black leather now reflects UV rays as easily as white leather. KOOL is a clever piece of bio-mimicry that enables black leather to reflect solar heat and stay cooler due to a lower surface temperature.

ANTI-MIRCOBIAL PROTECTION

A revolutionary anti-microbial that prevents odour and disease causing microbes from building up on the leather. Microblok will withstand repeated washing and provide permanent freshness.

FIRE RETARDANT

For lasting fire protection this novel chemical treatment is designed to react with the collagen deep within the leather fibres. Phoenix only activates in the event of a fire so the leather maintain a natural look and feel.

EXTRA GRIP

Friktion provides gloves with a ‘sticky’ grip in wet or dry conditions. In fact the wetter the conditions the more it grips. Combine Friktion with a special embossed texture for the ultimate grip irrespective of the conditions.

POSITIVE ID

To detect counterfeit products Leather DNA can be added to the leather. Invisible to the naked eye this identification technology is integrated during production and does not affect the leathers natural look and feel.
