Abstract


The fundamental characteristics of a textile fabric intended for the vehicle interior is presented. Chemical and physical-mechanical properties of artificial leather with bonded textile fabric on the back side are analyzed. The most important parameters for leather durability are: breaking force and elongation-at-break, and these properties will be tested in different circular directions. Likewise, chemical properties of artificial leather and basic construction parameters of the textile fabric are investigated. When using artificial leather, physical-mechanical properties of artificial leather as well as the quality of the seams are most important. In addition to the results obtained, physical-mechanical properties and aesthetic evaluation of the joined places will be compared.
