The main differences between PU leather and microfiber leather lie in the performance of the surface layer, the material of the base cloth, the performance of the main body and the market prospect
1. The properties of the surface layer are different. Although the surface of microfiber skin and common Pu is polyurethane resin, and the popular common PU for many years will have more colors and styles than microfiber skin. But generally speaking, the polyurethane resin on the surface of microfiber skin has stronger wear resistance, acid and alkali resistance, hydrolysis resistance, and color fastness and texture.
2. The material of base cloth is different. Common Pu is based on knitted, woven or non-woven fabrics, and then coated with polyurethane resin. The microfiber skin is made of the three-dimensional microfiber non-woven fabric, coated with high-performance polyurethane resin. The material, technology and technical level of the base cloth have a decisive influence on the performance of the microfiber skin.
3. Different performance. No matter in strength, wear resistance, hygroscopicity, comfort and other performance indexes, microfiber leather is superior to common PU. Generally speaking, it's more like leather, more durable and better feel.
4. Market outlook. Due to the low technical threshold, serious overcapacity and fierce competition in the common Pu market, the products are reduced in labor and materials, which is not in line with the increasingly upgraded consumption concept, and the market prospect is worrying. However, due to the high technical threshold and limited production capacity, the product performance is increasingly recognized by consumers, and the market has a large space to rise.
Microfiber leather and Pu represent the products of synthetic leather at different development stages and technical levels, so they have certain substitution effect. I believe that with the approval of more and more people, microfiber leather will be more widely used in all aspects of human life.
