Science and technology
The secret to Clarino’s™ superior strength and supple hand-feel is the ultra-fine fibre technology.
Clarino™ is composed of a non-woven fabric consisting of ultra-fine fibres which are impregnated with polyurethane. This helps the fibre to be more flexible and easier to process.
The spinning process creates an islands-in-the-sea structure. The fibres are known as islands and the matrix (consisting of a water soluble resin) is the sea. This islands-in-the-sea-structure is one type of two-component fibre whereby many fibres of one polymer are dispersed in the matrix of another polymer.
Clarino™ fibres are more flexible and move freely within the spaces of the fabric matrix. The result is greater suppleness and unparalleled softness!
Our man-made leathers contain microfibres as fine as 0.004 dr or less to imitate collagen fibre bundles, thereby attaining the soft feel and appearance essential for soft leather use.
