The finish facilitates cleaning and maintenance while retaining the shine, and without cracking, for longer
SÃO PAULO, May 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- JBS Couros is introducing to the global market the EVO, an evolution in technology that affords greater resistance and durability to leather products with this finish. Following the advent of covid-19, many people adopted new habits to prevent the propagation of the virus. As a result, frequent sanitation of objects and surfaces became an essential habit that has led the industry to deliver longer-lasting products.
"The EVO range has double the resistance in relation to regular leather. Moreover, it does not exhibit the hard, plasticized aspect of similar products on the market. This is a unique solution based on a highly complex international technical standard (AATCC130:1995), testing having been carried out using capillary products, food, beverages and even urine. We believe the material will be a highly successful differential and widely accepted on the market", points out Guilherme Motta, president of JBS Couros.
EVO technology functions with a high-performance concept, a product range designed to better resist the day-to-day stress of upholstery when compared to other products offered. The finish can be applied to sofas, chairs, armchairs and all types of upholstery in the aniline, semi-aniline and pigmented categories. In addition, the aim of the new collection is to combine the advantages and benefits of kind leather in terms of innovation, sustainability, traceability while making sure that the resources do not go to waste.
The new EVO range is available to attendees at the Showtime Market (Interwoven), which takes place between May 22nd and 25th in North Carolina (USA). During the event, participants will be able to check out items with the same pleasant-to-touch, smooth and natural characteristics of traditional leather, with double the performance in terms of resistance, cleaning and abrasion, primarily in coverings for furniture in locations with intense movement of people.
