The Specialty Application Production Stage covers any additional surface treatments to the Synthetic Leather material. The following process options are available:
- Hydrolysis, synthetic leather coating, polyurethane is the default process selection and should be used unless it is known that the process is not applied. In this process, a hydrolysis resistant layer is added to the surface of the synthetic leather.
- Water repellancy (C6, C8, PFC-free) should be selected if a water repellency treatment is applied to the surface of the synthetic leather.
- Waterproofing (C6, C8, PFC-free) should be selected if a waterproofing treatment is applied to the surface of the synthetic leather. This process is a heavier application of water repellency treatment. The Waterproofing and Water repellency processes are very similar. If it is not known which to use, the Water repellency treatment is considered to be more common and should be selected.
