What is microfiber leather VS PU leather?
Aug 09 , 2021
The full name of microfiber leather is microfiber PU synthetic leather. In layman's terms, microfiber is made up of a layer of high-performance PU (polyurethane resin) and microfiber base cloth. Its structure is the closest to real leather. The third-generation artificial leather has excellent performance.

PU is polyurethane. Polyurethane leather has excellent properties. In this regard, Bayer, BASF, Huntsman's production capacity is world-class, while textile fiber suppliers represented by Toray and Asahi have higher product technology. In foreign countries, due to the influence of the Animal Protection Association and the development of technology, the performance and application of polyurethane synthetic leather surpass that of natural leather. After adding microfiber, the toughness, air permeability and abrasion resistance of polyurethane have been further strengthened. There is no doubt that the performance of such manufactured products is quite excellent.

The full name of microfiber leather is "microfiber reinforced PU leather". It has extremely excellent wear resistance, excellent cold resistance, breathability, and aging resistance.

PU is the most common synthetic leather. Microfiber leather is also a kind of PU, but it has higher requirements and is closer to real leather. Genuine leather is also known as natural leather. As the name suggests, leather is made from the skin peeled off from animals (a bit cruel). Usually used are cowhide, sheepskin, pigskin, etc., of course, precious crocodile skin, ostrich Pi etc.

Microfiber PU Leather

The difference between fiber leather and ordinary PU
1. The difference in price. The general price range of ordinary PU on the market now is 15-30 (meters), while the price range of general microfiber leather is 50-150 (meters), so the price of microfiber is several times that of ordinary PU.

Second, the performance of the surface layer is different. Although the surface layers of microfiber leather and ordinary PU are polyurethane resin, and the common PU that has been popular for many years will have more colors and styles than microfiber leather. But generally speaking, the polyurethane resin on the surface of the microfiber leather has stronger abrasion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, hydrolysis resistance, and color fastness and texture than ordinary PU.

3. The base fabric material is different. Ordinary PU is made of knitted fabric, woven fabric or non-woven fabric as base fabric and coated with polyurethane resin. The microfiber leather is made of microfiber non-woven fabric with a three-dimensional structure as the base fabric and coated with high-performance polyurethane resin. The different materials, processes, and technical standards of the base fabric are decisive factors for the performance of the microfiber.

Fourth, the performance is different. Microfiber leather is better than ordinary PU in terms of strength, abrasion resistance, moisture absorption, comfort and other more performance indicators. Generally speaking, it is more like leather, more durable, and feels better.

5. Market prospects. The ordinary PU market has severe overcapacity due to low technical thresholds and fierce competition, resulting in product reduction in labor and materials, which is incompatible with the increasingly upgraded consumption concept, and the market prospect is worrying. However, due to the high technical threshold and limited production capacity of microfiber leather, product performance is increasingly recognized by consumers, and the market has a large room for growth.
