Method for distinguishing artificial leather and natural leather from sofa fabric

- May 22, 2018-

With the development of social science and technology, artificial leather technology is also maturing, product quality is greatly improved, especially in the simulation of leather, can be real, in breathability, flexibility, feel and appearance and many other aspects are similar to natural leather, but the price But it is far lower than natural leather. Therefore, in order to improve our ability to discriminate, Xuan Yi Furniture now introduces some simple and direct methods for reference.

1, visual identification method: First of all, should be identified from the leather pattern, pores and other aspects, in the surface of natural leather can see patterns, pores do exist, and the distribution is uneven, the opposite side of the animal fibers, side section, the level is clearly visible There are animal fibers on the lower layer. When the fingernails are used for scratching, the leather fibers will rise up and there will be a nappy feeling. A small amount of fibers can also fall down. The synthetic leather can see the fabric on the reverse side and there is no animal fiber on the side. Generally, the skin is not pored. However, some have artificial leather pores, there will be no obvious pores, some patterns are not obvious, or there are more regular artificial patterns, the pores are quite consistent.

2. Hand-feeling identification method: Secondly, the leather feel is elastic. When the leather is bent down about 90 degrees, there will be natural wrinkles. The different parts are bent, the thickness of the folds produced, and the amount of unevenness are obvious. It is believed that this is a genuine leather because natural leather has a natural non-uniform fibrous structure, and thus the formation of wrinkle lines is also markedly uneven. The synthetic leather feels like a plastic, the recovery is poor, and the folds are similar in size.

3, odor identification method: natural leather has a very strong taste of the skin, even after treatment, the taste is more obvious, and artificial leather products, there is a share of plastic taste, no fur taste.

4, burning identification method: mainly smell the smell of coke and see the state of ash, natural leather burning will emit a burning smell of hair, fired ash is generally easy to break into a powder, and artificial leather, flame after burning Prosperous, it shrinks quickly, and it has an unpleasant taste of plastic. It sticks when burned. It hardens into a block after cooling.
