What is the difference between PVC coated cloth and PU coated cloth?
What the two have in common is that they are both coating types, and PVC leather and PU leather are collectively referred to as artificial leather. Both PVC and PU are polyvinyl chloride. The PVC-coated cloth feels hard and the PU-coated cloth feels soft. The difference lies in the manufacturing process.
Now let's see the difference between these two technologies.
PU coated cloth process: The production process of PU leather is more complicated than that of PVC leather. Since the PU base fabric is a canvas PU material with good tensile strength, PU leather has better physical properties than PVC leather, with good bending resistance, softness, tensile strength, and breathability.
The difference between PVC coated cloth and PU coated cloth is relatively simple. In footwear, PVC leather is mainly used for linings or non-load-bearing parts. PU leather can be used for footwear fabrics or load-bearing parts. In addition, from the corners, the base fabric of PU is much thicker than PVC, and PU feels softer and harder than PVC.
