Sustainable Vegan Aircraft Upholstery by IZIT Leather

The Most Advanced Option for Commercial Airline Seating – IZIT Leather!

Your aircraft fleet’s seats need refreshment, and there are so many choices! There are wool blend upholstery fabrics, natural bovine leathers, a coated fabric that uses pulverized leather in its top coating with a claim of sustainability, synthetic leathers that require dangerous solvents and thousands of gallons of water in their processes. The choices are endless.

Do you want a product that communicates elegance? Are you committed to reducing your carbon footprint and committing to a sustainable philosophy? Is it more important to reduce the cost of ownership of your seat covers? Is durability important to your maintenance staff? Do you want to reduce the fuel burn imposed by heavy leather seat covers? Is there any product out there that meets just some of these criteria???

The answer is “Yes”! There is, in fact, a seating fabric that meets ALL these requirements! NEW IZIT Leather BioSYN® delivers and is the obvious selection for your airline.

The culmination of three years of intensive product development by IZIT’s producer Willow Tex, IZIT BioSYN Leather is truly the premier choice for commercial airline seating applications. Available in several performance options, IZIT BioSYN meets all your requirements for performance, sustainability, and low cost of ownership.

Excellent Overall Performance

In a recent evaluation in which a leather research laboratory at a renowned US university conducted a comprehensive battery of performance tests on six different synthetic leathers currently offered for commercial transportation seating, IZIT Leather XRT ranked among the highest of the materials tested.

Bio-Synthetic Formulation is Greenest in the Market

Willow Tex has devoted considerable resources to developing a product that meets today’s focus on protecting the environment for future generations. To achieve those objectives, enhanced product formulations now include plant-based fillers, bio-based polycarbonates and backer fabric made from recycled water bottles. Our products contain as much as 70% bio and recycled materials!

Non-Corrosive Characteristic

In recent years airlines and seating manufacturers have been concerned with the recurrence of certain synthetic leather products being corrosive to the metallic components of seat frame structures. Millions of dollars in repair and replacement costs have been spent to correct this problem. We are proud to confirm that of all the materials tested in the above referenced evaluation, IZIT Leather was the ONLY aviation synthetic leather tested that exhibited no corrosion or discoloration to the metallic substrate employed in the ASTM D1611 test protocol. You can rest assured that your seat structures are safe and secure with IZIT Leather.

Antimicrobial Topcoat is Available

In today’s world of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all more aware of the dangers of contamination from microbes in public transit settings. IZIT Leather can be produced with a durable treatment that kills 99%+ of all bacteria and viruses that land on its surface. This additive is safe and permanent, and it maintains its effectiveness for years after installation.

Patented Technology is Eco-Friendly

Not only does it out-rank the competition in performance, but IZIT Leather is eco-friendly as well. It achieves cost-efficient production through our patented EcoCel manufacturing process that, when compared with conventional synthetic leathers, uses up to 90% less energy, 80% less solvents, and eliminates wastewater altogether.
