HELCOR-LEDER-TEC ennobles leather, leatherfibre and microfibre by using the innovative finishing technology of the worldwide patented Schaefer system.
The system is a perfect match of design and finishing technology and allows the application of a polyurethane film, achieving a breathable, water vapour- and air permeable material.
Leather is still "Real Leather", as the applied film does not exceed 0,15mm. Bonded leather or as we call it "Second life leatherfibre" is another step towards sustainability as this material represents recycling at its best. Microfibre allows cost- and weight reduction without necessarily losing properties.
Almost every imaginable surface can be reproduced using inhouse produced silicone moulds. This and the fact that absolutely uniform substrates can be manufactured with this technology, opens an extremely wide range for design ideas.
Up to date HELCOR manufactures leather for the Automotive segment, Shoe Upper Leather, Bag and Accessory leather, as well as well as for all kinds of upholstery leather.
We offer a large variety of designs on leather, leatherfibre and microfibre. The designs are applied by the means of a patented finishing technology. The portfolio contains natural, technical and artificial surfaces.
HELCOR leather can now be used in medical areas, where it is about care, hygiene and health in particular.
Requirements in medical surroundings are particularly high, i.e. the international standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 describes the maximum release of cytotoxic concentrations.
HELCOR was able to reach this standard with a new leather finish (which is filed for patent) and is now approved for the use of leather in sickbeds, chairs, wheelchairs, etc.
The often asked question is: Why would someone want leather in medical areas? This is for sure too expensive.
The counterquestion we then ask is: Why should someone, who is bound to a wheelchair for life or who can move only with the help of medical devices, renounce the comfort and warmth of leather and sit or lie on cold articificial leather or a fabric? And what exactly is too expensive?
HELCOR leather nowadays is affordable luxury. Particularly in a segment which is enforcedly part of the life of many people, HELCOR provides well-being and a good feeling with its HealthCARE Leather.
