The Science of TecTuff

TecTuff uses a proprietary chemistry that builds strength from this inside out.

Our water-based polyurethane formula is applied to custom molds and securely bonded to materials substrates (leather, microfiber, textile and TPU hot-melt) through heat and pressure.

Once the TecTuff chemistry is cross-linked, the finish is the most durable and stain resistant in the industry. The finish is fused at the molecular level so it's impervious to dirt, oil and stain penetration making TecTuff extremely easy clean.
