Water absorption causes leather to lose its ability to insulate against heat and cold. It can also ruin the appearance of fine leather by leaving splotches and streaks. Removing the watermarks left behind is almost impossible once they occur.
H2O is an innovative and exclusive range of leather engineered to permanently repel water and oil. The treatment makes the fibres resistant to moisture, mould, mildew, stiffness and cracking with the added benefit of abrasion resistance and easy cleaning.
When merged with leather’s natural softness and durability, these properties will prolong its beauty and durability over time. High-performance waterproof leathers are especially suited to outdoor and high traffic areas.
High-performance waterproof leather are especially suited to the performance outdoor applications and high traffic areas.
Range of water resistence treatments
Surface treatment against dirt and spots. Appropriate to protect against oil and water spills.
Washable treatment that allows the water to pass through the leather without altering the any of its characteristics. Appropriate for areas where extended and continuous contact with water and humidity is expected.
Oil and water treatments developed for extreme applications, with resistance up to 12 hours of continuous contact with moisture. Suggested for outdoor upholstery and panelling.
In-depth treatment for hydro and oil repellence, elevating the leather performance to any indoor application where strong humidity, spills or splashes might occur, such as the bathroom.
