In addition to the good air permeability and water vapor permeability of natural leather, cow leather also has the advantages of large width, fine pores, smooth papillae, small position difference, smooth grain, and orderly arrangement of pores. Therefore, it has become the first choice for leather products. raw material.
Due to different manufacturing processes, cow leather can be classified according to the characteristics after processing:
Full-grain cowhide leather is a product that is closest to the characteristics of natural raw leather. The grain layer is not damaged during tanning, and the pores are clearly visible. The surface is not painted or lightly painted. It has a natural and beautiful appearance and Comfortable and breathable performance, full and elastic hand feel, it is a high-quality cow leather. Generally suitable for making high-end leather shoes.
Cowhide modified surface leather. Some cowhides cannot be used well due to many disability defects. In tanning, the grain surface layer is ground first, and then recoated with special chemical materials. Various animal skin pore patterns or other styles are pressed on the coating to achieve beautiful and practical effects. The strength is basically the same, but the hand feel and elasticity are slightly worse than that of cowhide full-grain leather. Generally suitable for making mid-range leather shoes.
Cowhide film leather uses two-layer and three-layer cowhide leather as the base. After grinding, a layer of polymer film with leather patterns is pasted (or sprayed) on the surface. The appearance of the leather after this treatment is almost the same as that of cowhide modified leather, but the air permeability is slightly worse. Generally suitable for making sports shoes and low-end leather shoes. If the glue on the surface is thicker or has a cloth-based film, although it feels similar to cow leather, its appearance and performance are closer to synthetic leather.
The fiber layer of cowhide (two-layer) suede cowhide leather looks like a fine hair after grinding. The surface is generally not painted except for dyeing. Therefore, its air permeability is very good, but it is easy to absorb dust when worn on the outside. Oil resistant.
The cowhide patent leather cowhide leather surface is coated with a mirror-like smooth, highly reflective paint layer.
After special processing, cowhide oil-impregnated cowhide leather has strong oiliness, good durability, and enough oiliness on the surface. Generally, the leather body is soft and it is not easy to use shoe polish.
Cowhide double-color effect leather cowhide has two different color coatings during the surface coating. Generally, the light color is on the lower layer and the dark color is on the surface. It is one color at first glance. The second color can be seen after bending. Wearing for a period of time, the surface color It will be worn off slowly, gradually revealing the light-colored parts, producing a two-color effect, and full of natural feeling.
