Ultraleather® Promessa® Selected Partner for the LIFT 737 Tourist Class Seating Program

Tapis Corporation is pleased to announce that Ultraleather® Promessa® by Ultrafabrics® has been selected as the standard synthetic leather for the LIFT 737 Tourist Class Seating.

Constructing seat covers using an engineered product such as Ultraleather allows for more consistency and greater ease of use during the cutting and sewing process. Additionally, such a product provides consistent yield, color, weight and quality. Ultraleather’s Takumi construction provides a balance of comfort, quality, durability and weight, helping create the ultimate seating experience. The product is manufactured using proprietary technology to create four-layer high performance fabric. This process does not use adhesives or bonding agents creating an extremely durable product and eliminating the risk of delamination.

In addition, Ultraleather can be engineered to achieve customer-specific requirements, including custom grains, colors, finishes and technical specifications. We can adjust the gloss level, weight, breathability, thickness and incorporate enhanced inherent properties such as an enhanced ink and stain protection for seating applications. This custom process has the unique ability to resist the toughest stains including Denim dye transfer and Ink.

Promessa, the most durable of our Ultraleather products, was selected by LIFT because it offers many of the benefits of leathers and textiles, plus a few unique benefits of its own.

• Lightweight - 46% reduction or over 385 lbs per A/C
• Long Haul Comfort – Heat and moisture management
• Maintainable – Hygienic and easy to clean
• Eco-Friendly - Animal-friendly, non-toxic process, allergy-free
• Superior Durability - Product life exceeds that of leather and bonded leather
• Performance Engineered – No risk of de-lamination

LIFT by EnCore is a California-based manufacturer of aircraft seats, part of the EnCore group. On April 4, LIFT announced the collaboration with Boeing on their Tourist Class Seating, the first seat designed specifically for the 737.

Tapis Corporation is celebrating its 40th year in business and its operations are certified to the AS9100 and ISO 9001:2008 International Quality System Standards.
