In recent years, under the pressure of environmental protection policies, environmental protection substandard synthetic leather enterprises are gradually shutting down, at the same time, with the development of new materials and new processes, synthetic leather market competition is becoming increasingly fierce, backward production capacity is gradually eliminated, the current microfiber leather as the representative of artificial leather has both environmental protection, performance and price advantages, its development prospects are promising, become the development direction of synthetic innovation.
Tracing the development process of artificial leather technology, it can be divided into three generations: one is PVC (polyvinyl chloride) artificial leather, the other is PU synthetic leather, and the third is microfiber synthetic leather.
Low-end PVC leather contains chemical components that are more harmful to the human body (especially plasticizers, etc.), and the VOC content is high, and it is only used in low-end bags, shoes, balls and other fields. Synthetic leather originated in the 40s of last century after the large-scale application of polyurethane materials, with soft luster, soft feeling, strong leather feeling, good cold resistance and other advantages, widely used in clothing, furniture and high-end shoes fields.
WINIW microfiber synthetic leather, referred to as “microfiber leather”, was developed on the basis of a full analysis of natural leather. Its production process is different from ordinary synthetic leather, and there is no peculiar smell during the production process. It has extremely excellent wear resistance, cold resistance, breathability and aging resistance, and can almost perfectly replace high-grade genuine leather materials. The main applications include furniture, clothing, ball making, shoemaking, automotive interiors and other high-end leather consumer industries.
