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.

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 XRT was the ONLY aviation synthetic leather tested the 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 XRT.
