GESSNER’s sustainable TPU carrier materials in artificial leather application

Feldkirchen-Westerham, Germany, August 2, 2023 – The demand for renewable and recycled substitutes for natural leather is rapidly increasing. In the realm of synthetic materials, Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) has gained prominence as a preferred material for artificial leather applications in the automotive and textile industries.

Renowned for its durability, elasticity, and resistance to oil, grease, and abrasion, TPU offers an attractive alternative to natural leather. TPUs with a high percentage of renewable content and superior performance are readily accessible. Importantly, these are vegan and produced without the use of animal-derived raw materials. However, TPU’s appeal extends beyond its functional attributes. In a world increasingly concerned with the environmental impact of materials production, the recyclability of TPU stands out as a key advantage, marking it as a top choice for eco-conscious manufacturers.

We are proud to present our TPU nonwoven backing material for TPU-based artificial leather, which enhances the ease of recycling and reusing of the entire product.

Leveraging our extensive experience in producing and developing TPU nonwovens, we understand the varied needs and specifications of our industry partners, and high quality and best performing products.
