During the tanning process, leather can become "split", when the outer layer peels away from inner layer. Consequently, split leather is available to manufacturers at lower cost.

JM Leary Associates' urethane coating process restores value and durability to split leather for use in upholstery, clothing, footwear and automotive applications. In addition, our facilities take special care in matching coating colors over periods of years for many long-established products. Whether for  new test marketsproducts, or standard runs for leather goods, embossing and color pigmentation can also add value to coated splits.
