The Latest and Greatest: AFS Sponsor Product Spotlight on Nonwoven TPU Backing Material from Gessner

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.

Gessner proudly presents its TPU nonwoven backing material for TPU-based artificial leather, which enhances the ease of recycling and reusing of the entire product. Leveraging its extensive experience in producing and developing TPU nonwovens, Gessner understands the varied needs and specifications of industry partners and high quality, best performing products.
