Synthetic Leather is a Material Category composed of traditional leather alternatives that are manufactured from synthetic polymers. Typically, a fibrous substrate material has a polymer coating deposited into the three-dimensional fiber network. An additional surface layer of polymer can also be applied to change the appearance and the function of the resulting material.
Synthetic Leather materials can be customized at the following Production Stages:
- Substrate Raw Material
- PU Type
- Substrate Formation
- Production Process
- Specialty Application
- Chemistry Certifications
There is currently only one Synthetic Leather Example Material that can be selected and customized. While there is only one Synthetic Leather Example Material, we are planning to enable more customization in the next Higg MSI data update.
- Polyurethane (PU) synthetic leather should be selected for all Synthetic Leather materials.
