  • Info

    TapiSuede™ is the finest high-performance textile responsibly engineered using ultra-fine recycled polyester fibers.

    TapiSuede™ is pliable, inherently stain resistant, washable, and spot cleanable. It's made of 100% high-purity recycled polyester which reduces its carbon footprint. The pure recycling process used in manufacturing TapiSuede™ is free from organic solvents, uses signifcantly less energy, and emits less carbon dioxide than the manufacture of virgin polyester. The result is a textile of highest quality and purity.

    For vertical surface applications, we offer TapiSuede™ BHC-SS which maintains the same characteristics as our standard TapiSuede™ but is extremely lightweight and meets the most stringent flame-retardant requirements for commercial aircraft, including:

    • Heat Release: FAR 25.853(d) Appendix F, Part IV
    • Smoke Density: FAR 25.853(d) Appendix F, Part V
    • Smoke Toxicity: ABD0031Issue F(7.4) & AITM 3.005

    In addition, our in-house lab has been accepted as an FAA testing facility for Smoke Density, OSU Heat Release and Bunsen Burner testing, allowing for quick turnaround and the ability to conduct tests as needed.

    For BHC-SS, wider goods are available upon request.
