Imitation leather for technical textiles
There are some areas where imitation leather is constantly exposed to high humidity, natural or synthetic oils and human lipids. Imitation leather with “normal” qualities can quickly be destroyed. In order to extend the durability of imitation leather in extreme conditions, Senso was developed with an antibacterial finish and a special softener. It causes no skin irritation, is oil-resistant and antimicrobial, and is available in 34 colors.
In cooperation with Forster Rohner AG, St. Gallen/Switzerland, a product innovation was created: the combination of imitation leather and LED technology becomes a multi-layered design element through visionary embroidery. The conductive yarn, the special LED elements and the application process were specially developed by Forster Rohner to make fabrics and ATN imitation leather shine. The light imitation leather creates effective atmospheres – rooms can be uniquely staged and accentuated. Light imitation leather is ideal for bed superstructures, wall and furniture coverings, seating areas, wall panels, etc. The integrated electronics enable dimming functions and animation effects as well as easy installation, power supply and operation through standard connections. Light textiles and light imitation leather are configured on the basis of pre-defined fabric qualities and embroidery designs from the collection. It is also possible to design them entirely according to individual customer requirements.
ATN’s imitation leather portfolio covers over 1,200 articles which can all be equipped with LED technology.
