1.The difference in price. At present, the general price range of ordinary PU on the market is 15-30 (meters), while the price range of general microfiber leather is 50-150 (meters), so the price of microfiber leather 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 microfiber leather. But generally speaking, the polyurethane resin on the surface of the microfiber 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 microfiber leather non-woven fabric with a three-dimensional structure as the base fabric, 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. Microfiber leather is better than ordinary PU in terms of strength, wear resistance, moisture absorption, comfort and other performance indicators. In layman’s terms, it is more like genuine leather, more durable and feels better.
5.Market prospects. In the ordinary PU market, due to the low technical threshold, severe overcapacity, and fierce competition, the product shrinks and cuts materials, which is incompatible with the escalating consumer concept, and the market prospect is worrying. 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.
6. Microfiber leather and ordinary PU represent products of different levels of development at different stages of artificial synthetic leather, and therefore 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.
PU leather refers to ordinary PU leather, polyurethane surface layer plus non-woven fabric or woven fabric, the performance is general, the price is more between 10-30 per meter.
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. The price is usually between 50-150 per meter.
Genuine leather, which is natural leather, is made from the skin peeled off from the animal. It has very good breathability and comfort. The price of genuine leather (top layer leather) is more expensive than that of microfiber leather.
