K9-Sport Kft., the successful manufacturer of JULIUS-K9® products, has reached another important landmark in the company’s series of success stories. With a patent dating back to the year 2012, the company is launching one of the most durable belts on the world. This product, which is already registered in the European Union, has been improved many times since its original inception, and it has finally come to the market as IDC® Lumino®.
The kernel of the idea – using plastic coated straps to attach objects and cargo – is already in use in other products, but the company’s inventor, Julius Sebő, has devised a new, unique way of implementing the concept. During the manufacturing process the belt material’s fabric structure partially merges with the plastic coating, creating a non-slipping belt that is impregnated with its surface lining. This means that the belt’s outer coating is extremely durable. The coating remains intact, even if there is damage or abrasion of the fabric component. Furthermore, the manufacturing process ensures that the other components of the fabric structure retain their carrying capacity, despite wear and tear. The innovative design ensures that the user of the leash has the best possible grip, and the dog wearing the collar has optimal comfort. The JULIUS-K9® brand already has an excellent reputation for the quality and durability of their equipment, and IDC® Lumino® is the latest flagship product for the company, easily meeting their high standards in this regard.
It is interesting to note that the name „Lumino®” is inspired by the concept of luminescence, a term which is defined as „the emission of light by a substance that has not been heated, as in fluorescence and phosphorescence”. This links to the fact that the collars and leashes, available in different colours, have the properties of both fluorescence and phosphorescence, emitting light whether in well lit areas or in darkness. This feature, combined with striped and split coatings, not only creates a fashionable appearance, but also improves the visibility and safety of the dog and its owner. Whether going on a short evening stroll in the city or an extreme hike in the mountains, dogs using the products have a striking appearance, while also enjoying durable, safe and practical leashes and collars. This is the ideal purchase for owners who like to care for their pet using long-lasting, well-made, safety-conscious and professional sports equipment.
The inventor of the product expects serious interest in the straps in both domestic and international markets. While the current product is for dogs, the patent is not just valid for pet equipment; it is equally applicable to motor vehicle equipment, thanks to the unique design and quality. This level of confidence in the product is no surprise; JULIUS-K9® has been a market leader for many years in its areas of production. The results and profitability of the company mean that there are high expectations for further success and expansion in the coming years.
