Technical performance footwear

Add performance characteristics to your leather to give your footwear the edge over the competition and meet the highest industry standards.

Trust Tasman Leathers to offer leading technical leathers designed and developed for the harshest environments.  Performance confirmed by the most rigorous testing.


Pro-tec Leather

Tasmans Pro-tec Waterproof range is produced using a polymer silicone waterproofing system. Coating the entire fibre structure ensures waterproofing qualities while maintaining breathability. This is far superior to surface coatings or stuffed methods.

This system has a much lower environmental impact compared to traditional methods and boasts low static water uptake while maintaining high water vapour permeability.  This assists in wicking moisture away from the foot as well as any additional waterproof fabric membrane.

We have three main styles of Pro-tec leathers all finished using Stahl Neo® portfolio for leather finishing. Stahl Neo® is a ZDHC compliant finishing system designed to improve our environmental footprint, without compromising leather quality.

Fullgrain or snuffed to create a distinctive aniline appearance. Using finishes developed to either maintain or increase Maeser flexes, with minimal water absorption
