What material is recycled leather Recycled leather is to pulverize real leather or recycled leather raw materials into leather fibers of a certain size, 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 surface fiber Melting is viscous, and each layer is extruded, glued, dehydrated into shape, dried, sliced, embossed and surface treated to obtain the final product.
Advantages and disadvantages of recycled leather 1. Advantages Recycled leather is moisture-absorbing and breathable. It has the same softness and elasticity as real leather, light texture, strong resistance to extreme high and low temperature, and abrasion resistance. 2. Disadvantages The strength 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 greater stress such as shoe uppers.
Application of recycled leather Reconstituted leather is the use of tannery waste and scraps generated in the leather processing process, and processed into high value-added products after recycling. It is a commonly used auxiliary material in leather products, leather shoes, furniture and other leather-related manufactured products. As an intermediate layer, recycled leather replaces cardboard with its unparalleled texture, elasticity, toughness, moisture resistance and processing adaptability; as a fabric, recycled leather can exhibit various performance effects through embossing, printing, and PU compounding processes. Used in the production of leather goods, furniture, book covers, etc.
How to distinguish between regenerated leather and dermis The reclaimed leather process is made by mixing genuine leather fiber, cross-linked fiber, resin and other additives. Leather is made from animal skins.
