TFL chemicals for Upholstery leather
Upholstery leather hides need to be as versatile as their end products. Soft, smooth with a pleasant gentle touch or robust, soil-resistant with perfect physical protection abilities. With whatever characteristic, leather is the perfect choice for upholstery articles. Its durability and longevity provides leather with a lot of advantages compared to alternative materials for upholstery. With proper leather care, upholstery leather will remain beautiful for many, many years and will not need replacing like textiles and fabrics. A leather sofa for example may keep its beauty for decades.
In recent years, we saw several home furniture trends where leather perfectly matches. One trend is nature and landscapes invading living rooms, terraces and outdoor seating. Wooden chairs in combination with leather for example or the warm and pleasant nature of leather used for carpets, wall decorations or even ceilings. In combination with numerous green plants, it creates the illusion of bringing nature to one’s own living room or outdoor lounges. Leather as a natural and sustainable material to be used to create modern living areas flatter every home's ambience.
In public transport, waiting areas or airplanes leather is appreciated because it is easy to handle and clean. At the same time it provides high physical protection abilities, e.g. flame protection and very low combustibility. Leather treated with the TFL PROTEC technology ignites less easily and the flame spread is significantly reduced. This adds life-saving minutes to the escape time. Flame retardants can thus make a decisive contribution to the fire safety of buildings, furniture, public transport and cars.

Leather is the perfect choise: sustainable , easy to clean and pleasant to sit on .
