represents the state of art in synthetic leathers, and is rapidly
replacing leather in many applications. In addition, the use of
Microfiber goes beyond the traditional use of leather as a raw
material. Microfiber continues to make inroads into technical
applications (such as polishing, cleaning, wiping, and as a medium
for processing of other products).
can supply nonwoven, needlepunched fiber, with deniers ranging
from 0.15 all the way down to 0.001 fiber size. The esthetics
of the material has been developed to the point of matching the
feel and look of real leather. Our microfiber is soft, lightweight,
with a silky touch and a bright color range. As a full grain product,
we can offer a very diverse range of embosses and colors. The
use of transfer paper technology ensures a highly sophisticated
grain picture. Our suede offers a rich nappa effect.
advantages over leather include uniformity throughout the material,
offering you a higher yield. The material has similar elongation
and tear strength properties as leather. As leather, microfiber
is permeable and offers high breathability and moisture transfer.
Various properties critical to end use can be engineered into
the finished product, such as water repellancy, abrasion resistance,
antistatic- and antibacterial properties. We work closely with
our customers to meet target requirements, and our supplier will
provide timely samples for your qualification.
