The ReCast® commercial polyurethane patterns are formulated with polycarbonate polymers, containing the strongest resins available for coated fabrics. Polycarbonate is a highly durable and scratch resistant material. ReCast has tremendous physical properties, is easy to clean, and will withstand the abuses of daily life.
ReCast products outperform industry standards for commercial polyurethane fabrics in tensile, tear, and seam strength. In addition, all of the ReCast commercial polyurethane patterns pass the ASTM D 3690-02 hydrolysis resistance test; exceed 100,000 cycles in the Wyzenbeek abrasion test; and pass the standard flammability tests (CA117, UFAC Class I, and NFPA 260).
The ReCast substrate backing material, a combination of recycled leather and polyester, significantly improves physical characteristics. Using recycled leather is also an environmentally sound policy because the leather scrap material would otherwise be sent to the waste stream.
ReCast commercial patterns have been designed for commercial upholstery applications where durability and style matter, and can be used wherever traditional leather would be used, such as sofas, love seats, sectionals, club chairs, occasional chairs, and headboards.
ReCast commercial patterns are available in a wide variety of colors ranging from rich earth tones (think deep browns, maroons and tans) to pastels and metallics. ReCast opens up a world of design possibilities in any décor where a real leather look is desired.
