ECCO Leather and DSM Dyneema have worked together to develop a new paper-thinDyneema Bonded Leather material, which features a luxurious look and feel of leather with the strength of the Dyneema fibre. The Dyneema Bonded Leather is made using a multi-phase development sequence involving pre-tanning, bonding and a careful series of interim and final-tanning stages. The first challenge was to develop a way of effectively bonding Dyneema composite fabric along the full surface of thinly skived high-grade bovine hide. The bonding process needed to maintain enough adhesion-integrity to withstand a battalion of secondary and final tanning processes..
