What is the difference between super fiber and ordinary PU 2021.06.16

1. Different performance.
Superfiber 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.
2. The performance of the surface layer is different.
Although the surface layer of microfiber leather and ordinary PU is 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, and hydrolysis resistance than ordinary PU, and it also has stronger color fastness and texture.

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 have a decisive influence on the performance of the microfiber leather.
4. Market prospects.
Due to the low technical threshold, severe overcapacity, and fierce competition in the ordinary PU market, products are reduced in labor and materials, which are incompatible with the increasingly upgraded consumption concept, and the market prospects are 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.
Microfiber leather and ordinary PU are products representing different development stages of artificial synthetic leather and at different technical levels, so they have a certain substitution effect. I believe that with the recognition of more and more people, microfiber leather will be more widely used in all aspects of human life.
