WHAT MATERIALS USE FOR SALON TUNING?

ALCANTARA FOR TUNING OF A SALON Alcantara or artificial suede, a new unusual and popular material used for finishing racks and ceilings. It perfectly combines with leather when finishing seats and torpedoes. Padding Alcantara – this is a durable and durable finish material that has good performance properties, is easy to clean and does not fade in the sun. Artificial suede is soft and velvet to the touch, completely imitates natural material and adds warmth and comfort to the car’s interior. A wide selection of Alcantara colors allows you to use it to implement a variety of design ideas. In addition, you can order faux suede with a variety of perforations. The advantages include excellent wear resistance and resistance to aggressive chemicals. It does not sustain combustion and is not afraid of temperature extremes. In addition, Alcantara is resilient and resistant to mechanical damage. To facilitate the tuning of the cabin appeared self-adhesive Alcantara. This is a rolled material 150 cm wide on a self-adhesive basis, the running meter of which costs from 1,800 rubles (a piece of 150×90 cm). It has sufficient elasticity to repeat complex surfaces. Allowed to apply on a full-time interior trim without dismantling the old. I recommend to read: carbon for tuning the cabin and appearance.
CAR LEATHER FOR TUNING OF A SALON Skin interior upholstery is an increase in prestige, because it is considered the most practical and durable material. As the material for the waist will not fit any skin. For this purpose, a special technology has been developed for the production of automotive leather with enhanced wear resistance, strength and resistance to fire. In addition, the car skin is breathable, resistant to chemicals and not afraid of water. Not every car enthusiast can afford to drag on a genuine leather interior, because a full waist up will cost 100,000 rubles. There is an economy option – this is artificial leather, but it will not suit everyone for quality. The best option is eco-leather material. Now it is used to make covers for cars, but it can also be used for interior stretching. Especially suitable for the waist of door cards of perforated eco-leather material. Plus automotive leather or eco-leather – a simple care for this material. For the care you need to buy a conditioner for auto skin and a microfiber cloth. It is worth noting that the durability of the skin is much greater than that of the Alcantara material. If you do interior tuning, then you can use several materials. For seats – automotive skin (with Alcantara inserts), because It is a durable material. For plastic in the cabin and the ceiling – Alcantara. For covering door cards – as Alcantara, and skin. It all depends on your preferences.
