Sample of the month: Sileather


Sileather is a faux leather made of silicone and developed in China.  It is made by combining raw material silicon resin with various non-woven fabrics to make an extremely durable, stretchy environmentally friendly product.

Sileather has many applications as it is pliable and weatherproof and can be used in exteriors and interiors ranging from hospitality to marine furnishings and healthcare.  It is also soft to touch and easy to clean.

 

This sample can be found in the Samples Library housed in our Materials Room in the Basement of the Library.
