CONNEAUT, Ohio, Dec. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Conneaut Leather is pleased to announce a luxurious seating solution for high traffic areas. All products produced by Conneaut Leather are now available Powered by Crypton®. The high-tech functionality of the Crypton® finish effectively reduces the formation of bacteria and odor.

The Crypton® Leather's breathable, stain resistant finish protects against ink, coffee, wine, grease, crayons, grass, blood, nail polish remover, betadine, urine and unpleasant odors. Its bleach cleanable surface allows the durability of leather to become a practical solution for environments that require easy to clean furnishings.

"We are extremely excited to partner with Crypton® and offer an unsurpassed level of durability, cleanability and comfort to our customers," says Jim DiLella, President of Conneaut Leather. No other leather manufacturer can provide this level of protection."

As of September 2010, the complete line of Conneaut Leather products is available Powered by Crypton®. Ideally suited for hospital rooms, nurse stations, waiting areas and offices, Conneaut Leather has been working with dozens of furniture manufacturers, designers, and distributors to bring this protection to the healthcare world.

According to Jimmy DiLella, Director of Business Development at Conneaut Leather, "Historically, leather has not had a strong presence in healthcare environments, mainly because of the cleanability factor. Conneaut Leather has addressed this issue with the addition of its anti-microbial, antibacterial and bleach cleanable Crypton® Leather. Patients and their families can now enjoy the luxury, comfort and warmth of their own home while undergoing treatment.

Conneaut Leather has been in business since 1903. Our state of the art eco-friendly manufacturing techniques produce finished leather products for nearly every industry. In addition to Conneaut Leather's 250 in-stock colors, any custom color or embossing can be made for a 10-hide minimum.
