CHAMAR - Material for Leathergoods and Belts

Chamar

A material suitable for the production of leathergoods has to meet top requirements. As it is usually finished, the surface has to be extra smooth. Ledertech supplies this material buffed on one or both sides. Furthermore, the material has to be characterized by its high tensile strength and elongation. Ledertech is producing material for this market segment for many years and continues to optimize the product porfolio in order to provide a variety to satisfy the different requests of our customers and adapt to the challenges of the market. Still some years ago, genuine leather was used to manufacture belts. Nowadays, more and more tanneries acquire the routine to finish recycled leather and realize that the quality obtained is becoming similar to leather. Belt manufacturers confirm that it is a perfect alternative to split leather. Please find the variety of material Ledertech designed for leathergoods and belts:

1. Chamar – Amber L

  • colour: black dyed (S) or natural (L)
  • thickness: 0.6 mm – 2.0 mm
  • rolls or sheets
  • thickness: 1.0 mm – 2.0 mm

Chamar Amber L is developed to replace Ledertechs product type Chamar CR 8 L/S which was supplied to customers for many years. Unlike Premium, the customer of Chamar Amber are looking for a stiffer version. The smooth surface gives very good results for finishing and the excellent bending resistance as well as the stitch tear strength allows a variety of applications which were formerly reserved to genuine leather. Chamar Amber also exists in 0.6 mm and 0.8 mm. Cutted in stripes and processed under temperature and pressure Chamar Amber shows a “so-called” coke effect for elegant finishing results to achieve a typical leather-look.
