Durafit….The highest qualified microfiber!
Not just a statement but an absolute guarantee!
Durafit continuously strives to meet the highest standards of product safety and quality and works to ensure compliance with applicable regulations and standards.
All Durafit materials have been intensively tested and certified by several independent test institutes who stands for customer confidence and high product safety.
Today, materials are no longer just selected for their appearance, function and quality. The footprint and impact of a raw material on the environment and personal health are increasingly included as a weighting factor in the selection process.
Our product developers are constantly making efforts to continue to reduce the environmental impact of the Durafit materials.
Durafit, the ideal replacement for leather
In comparison with leather, the Durafit materials excel on the following fronts:
-No harmful tannins are used in the production process (hypoallergenic)Yield per m2 is approximately 10-15% higher because Durafit has continuous dimensions.
-Up to 5% less failure due to the homogeneous quality of the material
-At least 30% shorter processing time compared to leather by processing in a semi-automatic setting, possibly by established nesting
Our tests show that the long service life of Durafit is the most determining factor for improving its environmental impact. The more sustainable the product, the smaller the impact on the environment.
