Artificial leather designed specially for outdoor applications
Our portfolio also includes artificial leather with special properties for outdoor applications. skai® cool colors Venezia, for example, is a high-quality upholstery fabric specially designed for outdoor use. Its surface keeps the upholstery material cool even in direct sunlight. Special cool colors pigments reflect up to 80% of near-infrared radiation, which reduces the heat build-up in the upholstery material by up to 25%. This innovative technology has already proved its worth in other areas such as convertible seat coverings or window frames, where it has been found that the darker the color, the greater the effect. Now, skai® cool colors Venezia means colorful synthetics spanning the entire spectrum can be used in outdoor applications – something that would once have been unthinkable due to the heat.
