Alstom Delivers First Citadis LRV with Lantal Fabrics for Pa...
Lantal was commissioned to manufacture the seat covers for the new Alstom Citadis LRV trams which will run on the Paris T9 line.
To address customer demand for leather-look seat covers with low weight and very good cleanability, Lantal Textiles will be launching its newly developed TEC-Leather in the market at the beginning of next year. Its world debut is scheduled for this year’s InnoTrans rail industry show in Berlin.
With respect to properties and performance, Lantal Textile’s TEC-Leather is far superior to conventional leather and artificial leathers available on the market today. It is a truly refined alternative to existing products. The innovative material complies with the strict provisions of railway standard EN 45545-2 and can be deployed for seat covers without fireblockers.
Additionally, TEC-Leather is stain-repellant as well as insensitive to oil and perspiration. It can be cleaned very easily with water or an alcohol-containing solution. The new seat cover guarantees hygiene freshness and deters fungal growth. The excellent thermal properties and breathability of TEC-Leather prevent heat buildup.
The material does not cause skin irritation, is phthalate-free and not cytotoxic. Its low weight and elasticity, an asset when it is fitted to seats of any shape, are further advantages of Lantal’s new TEC-Leather.
