Leather and imitation leather identification method


With the development of social science and technology, artificial leather technology is also maturing, product quality greatly improved, especially in the simulation of the skin, you can take the real ones, in the air permeability, flexibility, feel and appearance and many other aspects of natural leather similar, but the price But far below the natural leather, therefore, in order to improve our ability to identify, now introduce some simple and direct method for reference.



1, visual identification method

First of all, from the leather pattern, pores and other aspects to identify the surface of natural leather patterns can be seen, the pores do exist, and unevenly distributed, the opposite animal fibers, side sections, the level is clearly identifiable , The lower the animal fibers, scratch test with fingernails there will be leather fibers erected, the feeling of raising a small amount of fiber can fall down, , But some artificial leather faux pores, there will be obvious pores exist, some patterns are not obvious, or have a more regular artificial patterns, the pores are also quite consistent.


2, feel identification method

Second, the leather feel flexible, the leather will be bent down 90 degrees face will appear natural folds, respectively, bending different parts of the resulting crease thickness, how many, there is obvious uneven, the basic can This is considered a genuine leather, because the real leather has a natural non-uniform structure of the fiber, and therefore wrinkle lines are also formed with a noticeable unevenness. The synthetic leather feel like plastic, less responsive, bending down how much the thickness of the lines are similar.


3, smell identification method

Natural leather has a very thick fur taste, even after treatment, the taste is more obvious, and leather products, plastic plastic shares, no fur taste.


4, combustion identification method

the main odor smell smell and look at the state of ember, natural leather burning will emit a hair scorched smell, the burning of the ash is generally fragile into powder, and artificial leather, flame after burning than Wang, rapid contraction, and the shares are unpleasant plastic taste, after burning sticky, cooling will become stiff after the block.
