What is PU Leather?

PU leather refers to ordinary PU leather, polyurethane surface layer plus non-woven fabric or woven fabric, the performance is general.

What is Microfiber Leather?

Microfiber leather is a microfiber PU synthetic leather. The high-performance polyurethane surface layer is attached to the microfiber base fabric. It has excellent performance, especially wear resistance and scratch resistance.

What is Real Leather?

Real Leather is also called as Genuine leather, which is natural leather, is made from the skin peeled off from animals. It is very breathable and comfortable.

The difference of Real Leather, PU Leather and Microfiber Leather

1. The difference in price. At present, the general price range of ordinary PUs on the market is 15-30 (meters), while the price range of general superfiber leather is 50-150 (meters), so the price of superfiber is several times that of ordinary PU.

2, the performance of the surface layer is different. Although the surface layers of microfiber leather and ordinary PU are polyurethane resins, the color and style of ordinary PU that have been popular for many years will be much more than that of superfiber leather. But generally speaking, the polyurethane resin on the surface of the superfiber leather has stronger wear resistance, acid and alkali resistance and hydrolysis resistance than ordinary PU, and the color fastness and texture will also be stronger.

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

4, the performance is different. No matter the strength, abrasion resistance, moisture absorption, comfort and other performance indicators, the super-fiber leather is better than ordinary PU. In layman's terms, it is more like genuine leather, more durable and feels better.

5. Market prospects. The ordinary PU market has low technical threshold, severe overcapacity, and fierce competition, which has led to product shrinkage and reduction of materials. Due to the higher technical threshold and limited production capacity, microfiber leather is increasingly recognized by consumers, and the market has more room to rise.

Microfiber leather and ordinary PU are products of different levels of technology representing different stages of artificial synthetic leather, so they have a 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.
