Two Types of Materials as Exterior:
POLYVINYL CHLORIDE LEATHER (PVC)
Our PVC leather (polyvinyl chloride) is an original type of imitation leather that is produced by substituting the hydrogen group with a chloride group in the vinyl groups. The result of this replacement is then blended with some other chemicals to create a durable plastic material that is easy to maintain.
With regard to durability, PVC’s multi-layer structure and lack of pores compared with PU leather makes the material more durable than PU leather. This is why PVC leather is mostly used in upholstery. Utilizing PVC leather could result in additional product lifetime as well.
PVC has no hair-follicles (pores) which makes it virtually waterproof and high temperature resistance. PVC leather is a different form of plastic, which cannot be degraded easily.
POLYURETHANE LEATHER (PU)
In terms of performance, polyurethane leather is waterproof as well, can be dry-cleaned, and is soft and supple. It is much lighter than real leather. Its synthetic form does not crack or fade under sunlight, making it particularly ideal for upholstery.
Other benefits of polyurethane leather include its environmental credentials. As a bio based material, genuine leather’s main environmental benefit is its biodegradability. However, traditionally, leather production and the tanning process use several toxic chemicals, which produce pollution in our interior and exterior environments. By contrast, innovative manufacturing techniques make polyurethane leather cleaner to make, with less natural resource use and free of animal cruelty.
Your Choice of Selecting PVC and PU Leather as Matarial
PVC leather is an entirely synthetic material. It has more layers underneath its coating, making it tougher and more durable.
PU leather consists of a split leather backing, topped with Polyurethane coating that gives the fabric a finish similar to natural leather, with similar flexibility too. PU provides the most realistic imitation of leather with respect to hand, surface feel and overall aesthetics. But as compared with PVC leather, it breaks or wrinkles easier like real leather when gathered or stitched.
Foam Material as Interior
Our polyurethane flexible foam is a high density, and high resiliency typed foam. This has been widely used on high end seat cushions because of its cushioning performance. It composes of high density and compression foam material, its inner core determines its softness and firmness of the cushion enabling it durable and perform well.
Not just restricted to sleeping positions, our bolster cushions are versatile accessories and can be used for various activities. The long cylindrical shape makes them a good choice for an armrest for sitting and reading or watching television. You can use them as a headrest as you laze around on the couch or the floor.
