Asahi Kasei’s Strategic Business Unit (SBU) Fibres & Textiles is expanding capacity for Lamous microfibre suede in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan. High-quality microfibre suede Lamous, Dinamica brand by MIKO, has unique three-layered microstructure which allows free combinations of the raw materials. Lamous is made of the front, back, and core layers.

They are three-dimensionally entangled with microfibres, and the core layer is composed of a fine, specially-woven fabric called “scrim,” which improves strength and dimensional stability. Impregnation with water-based polyurethane imparts a soft and highly flexible texture.

Koushirou Kudou, lead executive, president of officer Fibres & Textiles SBU, comments: “Featuring luxurious smooth texture and flexibility in design as well as superior environmental characteristics, Lamous high-quality microfibre suede (artificial suede) has been actively expanded worldwide in a wide variety of applications including automotive interiors, furniture upholstery, IT accessories, apparel, and industrial materials.”

“Sold in markets around the world, Lamous is enjoying particularly strong demand growth in automotive interiors. As such demand growth is forecasted to continue, the decision was made to expand capacity. Asahi Kasei will continue to strengthen the Lamous supply configuration in line with additional growth in the global market,” Kudou says. (SV)
