Brilliant, sustainable solutions for coating leather-like synthetic materials for car interiors

Better air quality and
durability in car interiors

Nowadays, the car interior has become one of most important parts of the car. Being in close contact with the passenger, not only should it be beautiful and have a nice surface touch, but there should not be any vapours or odours emitted from the materials, so that the air quality in this airtight room is safe and pleasant. In addition, materials in the interior of the vehicle should last as long as the exterior; which makes it highly challenging!

The Performance Coating Division of TFL provides solutions to the above challenges. Below we discuss three categories of these materials which are specified by their location in the car and their usage.
