1、 The surface characteristics are different. Although the surfaces of microfiber leather and general PU are all made of polyurethane resin, and the popular general PU for many years will have much more colors and styles than microfiber leather. But generally speaking, the polyurethane resin on the surface of microfiber leather has stronger wear resistance, resistance to Guangdong Province water-soluble PU leather products’ pH, pH, hydrolysis reaction, and stronger color fastness to washing and layering compared to ordinary PU.
2、 The materials of needle punched non-woven fabrics are different. Generally, PU is made of needle punched non-woven fabrics made of knitted fabrics, woven fabrics or non woven fabrics, and then coated with polyurethane resin. And the microfiber leather is made of needled non-woven fabric made of ultra-fine fiber with three-dimensional structure, coated with high-performance polyurethane resin. The different materials, processing techniques, and technical levels of needle punched non-woven fabrics pose a fundamental threat to the characteristics of microfiber leather.
The touch of microfiber leather is softer than that of Cowhide, and it belongs to a high-end leather product developed as a new and new type of synthetic leather. Because of its advantages of abrasion resistance, low temperature resistance, air permeability, anti-aging, soft material, environmental protection and good appearance, it has become an ideal alternative to pure natural leather products.
Practical experience shows that the various high-quality characteristics of microfiber leather cannot be replaced by pure natural leather products. From the perspective of sales markets around the world, microfiber leather has also replaced many natural leather products with insufficient resources. The use of microfiber leather for the decoration design of luggage, leather goods, clothing, shoes, cars, and furniture has gradually gained popularity in the sales market. There is no doubt that its wide range of applications, large total number, and diverse types cannot be satisfied by traditional pure natural leather products.
PU artificial leather is the outer skin composed of polyurethane material, suitable for decorative design of luggage, leather goods, clothing, shoes, cars, and furniture. It has gradually gained sales market undoubtedly, and its wide range of applications, total quantity, and variety are beyond the traditional pure natural leather products. The quality of PU artificial leather also has advantages and disadvantages, and good PU artificial leather is even more expensive than cowhide.
