Applied in thin layers, they bring functionality to the material used in outdoor wear and provide a pleasing touch to denim jeans while protecting colour effects. In thicker layers, PU coatings are the key to high quality synthetic materials that are used widely in footwear uppers, garments and accessories, furniture and car upholstery. Multi-talented PU brings remarkable appeal and comfort through its incredible combination of softness and durability.
