AQUAMARINE is a specially designed outdoor product from JMT Leather, which combines a high level of durability with complete water resistance.
It is ideal for all outdoor situations, maintaining its texture and lifespan even in extreme environmental conditions.
Thickness : 1.1/1.3mm
Average hide size : 50 sqft (4.6 sqm)
Suitable for marine and all outdoor applications.
AQUAMARINE is also available in any other colour shown on our site provided that a minimum of 60 hides per colour is purchased.
N.B: Like all upholstery materials, including vinyl, leather will be susceptible to staining by self-tanning lotions, creams and liquids.
Please note that although AQUAMARINE is a fully water resistant leather, water can still penetrate through the stitching holes. To avoid the development of any mould on the inside of your upholstered product, we recommend that stitched parts are taped on the interior and/or in addition that the interior allows any build up of water to exit through appropriate apertures. Use only appropriate materials and methods to avoid water penetration and adverse reaction to the leather.
Cleaning: The most efficient and therefore recommended cleaner is our special JMT AQUAMARINE cleaner. For regular maintenance we recommend the JMT AQUAMARINE conditioner.
