The leather must be beautiful, sustainable and compliant with all technical requirements and regulations but sometimes it is not enough. Its use must be justified, so we try to be of help in identifying the most suitable article for your project.

A theater is not an airplane nor a train, share the technical aspects with us, so we can develop your project with the maximum support, cost efficiency and respecting deadlines.

Our experience will guide you in presenting not only the desired color and texture, but the leather will already be developed for serial production, with the required technical and maintenance characteristics.

Leonica Genuine Leather with antimicrobial treatment

In collaboration with Sanitized AG, a Swiss company specialized since 1935 in antibacterial and antimicrobial treatments, we have developed a treatment for our genuine leather for public spaces, transport, home furniture and leatherware.

The Sanitized® additives are integrated in the leather during the manufacturing process. The antimicrobial active ingredients of Sanitized® effectively prevents the spread of bacteria and provides long-lasting protection for the leather.

The inherent antimicrobial protection, a silver ions based agent, prevents the growth of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Since silver ions do not readily evaporate nor dissolve the efficacy will be long-lasting. Sanitized® T 11-15 acts on the bacterial cell membrane, which inhibits function of the microorganism and blocks the respiration and vital food intake of bacteria.

Antiviral activity on Leonica Genuine Leather has also been tested by an independent laboratory in the U.S.A. in accordance with standard: ISO 21702:2019 (antiviral activity on non- porous surfaces, including natural leathers) and showed a reduction higher than 99.0% after 2 hours of contact time when tested against the Human Coronavirus 229E and Influenza A virus (H1N1).

Leonica Genuine upholstery leather is available with easy cleaning and Hygiene features:

  • Easy Clean: Superior resistance to cleaning products and improved cleanability;
  • Anti-Soiling: Build-in protection for pastel and light colors;
  • Hygiene: improved resistance to disinfectants;
  • Healthcare: Blood and Urine resistant finishes.

“Disinfection Guidelines” are available on request.
