DELSEY luggage offers many hidden assets - but now, you will never see it in the same light again!
• Polyamide (or nylon, a trademark registered by Dupont de Nemours): equal in resilience, this expensive technical fibre generally has more shine than polyester. Ballistic polyamide with a thickness of over 1,620 denier was originally used for bullet-proof vests.
• Leather: after tanning, the animal hide becomes a highly resilient and versatile material. A separation process makes it possible to isolate the outer level (grain), thereby obtaining consistent thickness and a certain regularity. An original grain that has no marks of abrasion on its surface indicates superior quality leather.
• Polycarbonate: is lightweight, flexible and resilient. It can be crushed or twisted without suffering any permanent damage and any traces of impact can be eliminated with the help of a hairdryer. The material of choice for our hardside suitcases, it also has excellent mechanical properties and high heat resistance (up to 120°C).
• Polyurethane: flexible and highly abrasion resistant, this is the component of choice used for our wheels.
• Neoprene: anti-slip and relatively elastic synthetic rubber, it can be used for protecting everything by adapting to the form of the article.
• Polypropylene: injection moulded to produce bases and protective feet, handles, reinforcements, wheel housings, buckles, etc.
• Zamac: a highly resilient aluminium alloy, injection moulded to manufacture buckles, logo plates, zip fastener tags, etc.
• Polyamide: in its solid and raw state, it is the main component used for producing plastic buckles.
