Taiwanese firm GS to manufacture plastic-free vegan leather

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-05-07 09:21:37 – Taiwan

General Silicones (GS), a Taiwanese silicone product manufacturer, has been one of the leading suppliers of environmentally safe, plastic-free vegan leather goods. Vegan leather goods are becoming increasingly popular around the world. Silicone rubber is used to make vegan leather from GS. Natural silica, a component of sand, is used as the raw material for silicone rubber.

Vegan leather signifies GS's participation in the manufacturing evolution toward processes that do not use resources in harmful ways, or hurt animals, or pollute the environment. As a manufacturer, GS is now enabling its suppliers and customers to produce goods that do not include animal cruelty and are more environmentally friendly.

PVC and other petroleum derivatives are used to make traditional faux leather fabrics. They have all of the issues that plastics have. GS has the know-how and skills as a silicone manufacturer with over five decades of experience to meet the need for high-quality vegan leather raw material from businesses producing vegan silicone leather-based products in a variety of industries.

Silicone rubber is used to make vegan leather from GS. Natural silica, a component of sand, is used as the raw material for silicone rubber. Silicone has been found in several experiments to be non-toxic, durable, and environmentally friendly. Over the course of their lives, silicone materials emit less carbon dioxide than they produce during the manufacturing process.

All coloring additives for vegan leather processing at GS are created in masterbatches that have been FDA, RoHS, and REACH-certified as environmentally safe.

GS vegan leather goods are made to the highest environmental requirements. Green production practices and regulations are followed during the entire manufacturing process at GS. The company has earned ISO 14001 certification. During the development and processing process, no harmful chemicals or solvents are used or released, making silicone rubber-based vegan leather an environmentally safe commodity.

With its patented Compo-SiL process, GS offers vegan leather to its customers. Vegan leather can now be shipped in rolls that are easy to package and stock. Textile and other fabric manufacturers that use roll-to-roll manufacturing methods can conveniently incorporate Compo-SiL vegan leather raw material into their production line with conventional adhesives.

To easily integrate vegan leather produced by GS into current mass manufacturing processes, no changes to the production line are needed. Vegan leather from GS is a cost-effective way to meet the increasing demand for environmentally-friendly vegan leather.

Silicone-based vegan leather is made to imitate the touch, feel, and appearance of real leather with the additional benefits of silicone rubber. Silicone-based vegan leather offers benefits that other materials can't match. Silicone rubber can withstand extremes of cold and heat, as well as chemicals and solvents.

Vegan leather from GS is extremely durable and wearable to a variety of fabrics. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic products with properties that ensure a much longer product lifespan. Around the same time, it has outstanding product characteristics such as low maintenance,  weather resistance, skin-friendliness, and waterproofness.

Compo-SiL is more environmentally friendly and affordable than other vegan leathers. Many vegan leather goods do have a lot of synthetic ingredients in them. Such new materials can end up in landfills if there isn't a proper storage and recycling system in place. The decomposition of the organic material applied to the leather would produce methane gas, which is a major global warming agent. The plastic additives then decompose into unwelcome microplastic. The silicone content of Compo-SiL vegan leather, on the other hand, would not contain any toxic products until degraded, except when disposed of in landfills.
