What is recycled leather?

Regenerated leather has both the characteristics of genuine leather and PU leather, and is a very common leather fabric today. So what is recycled leather? Let’s take a look at recycled leather.
Regenerated leather is to pulverize leather or regenerated leather raw materials into leather fibers of a certain size, and then mix it with natural rubber, resin and other raw materials, and then compress it into a filter cake; heat the filter cake to make the fibers on the surface layer. Melting is viscous, and each layer is extruded, bonded, dehydrated, dried, sliced, embossed and surface treated to obtain the final product.

The regenerated leather has the advantages of moisture absorption and air permeability, and the good workmanship also has the advantages of leather-like softness, elasticity, light texture, strong resistance to extreme high and low temperature, and wear resistance. However, the strength of recycled leather is worse than that of leather of the same thickness, and of course it is worse than PU, so it is not suitable for leather goods with high stress such as shoe uppers.

Recycled leather is the use of tanning waste and the scraps produced in the processing of leather goods, which are recycled and processed into high value-added products. As an interlayer, recycled leather replaces cardboard with its unparalleled texture, elasticity, toughness, moisture resistance and processing adaptability; as a fabric, recycled leather can show various performance effects through embossing, printing, and PU compounding processes, which are widely used in a wide range of applications. It is used in the production of leather goods, furniture, book covers, etc.
