Considered a leading product of the Finproject industrial group, XL EXTRALIGHT® is fruit of innovative technology that guarantees an extraordinary lightness, which is three times lighter than other materials for the sole but with the same physical and mechanical properties.

XL EXTRALIGHT® is the result of an exclusive productive process patented in Italy and worldwide, which starts from material ideation and arrives right up to mould design and moulding processes. The main feature of this closed-cell material is its ability to combine a low density with the extraordinary physical and mechanical properties of polyolefin resin, which is characterised by a distinct and soft touch.

Extremely versatile, XL EXTRALIGHT® enriches the creative possibilities of brand partners to this Marches company: it can be applied to a wide range of industries from fashion, to casual, sports, and safety, while always maintaining intact the features of lightness, durability, and high performance. These versions are joined by XL EXTRALIGHT® Dual-Color, which thanks to sophisticated technology allows for a two-tone version to be created through a single process; and XL EXTRALIGHT® Sustainable+, with a formula that includes a 50% reuse of by-products derived from the company’s in-house production cycle that would otherwise be destined for landfills, made possible by an exclusive and highly engineered process of recovery.

The sustainable innovation at the heart of XL EXTRALIGHT® is based on a production cycle designed to limit the production of waste, and on the use of clean energy provided by the photovoltaic systems in the plant. Every component of XL EXTRALIGHT® is subjected to monitoring and controls that follow the highest safety standards, leading to the ideation of materials that are completely free of harmful chemical substances and heavy metals. The quality and efficiency of Finproject processes, products and services have been recognised since 1997, the year in which the company was granted UNI EN ISO 9001 quality certification.
