History of artificial leather
The first form of artificial leather was called Presstoff and this fabric is still in production today. It was invented in Germany and never became worldwide popular.
In 1920, the invention of Naugahyde came into existence. It was invented by the US Rubber company. Naugahyde is another name for synthetic leather. It was a viable alternative to real leather. It became very famous for various industrial applications in the 1930s and 1940s. By the 19th century, it became a petroleum-based plastic that was easy to produce in bulk. Its petroleum-based production was an attempt by Chinese artificial leather manufacturers.
By the 1950s, many other companies started to make synthetic leather-like U.S. Rubber. By the last decade of the 20th century, Naugahyde remained the dominant trademark for this leather. Other manufacturers started to oppose the brand’s strength in the leather market.
Throughout the most recent couple of years, artificial leather manufacturers have tried to make the leather eco-friendly by not using petroleum-based plastics. However, so far only a few companies have succeeded in making this leather without the use of PVC.
How artificial leather is made?
Artificial leather is made by using two petroleum-based plastics i.e. polyurethane (PU) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The process of making these plastics is completely different but using them for making the rexine is somewhat similar.
The base material is needed for the making of leather. Faux leather manufacturers combine the base layer with the PVC or PU. This base layer used is mostly made of cotton or polyester. The cotton and polyester used here are usually of a rough texture that needs to be made specifically for this purpose.
The next step taken by the leather manufacturers is to formulate the plastic. For instance- to make PU various chemicals like isocyanates, polyols, and some additives. They then react to each other and then processed. PU utilized in this leather creation is presented to plasticizing added substances to accomplish flexible material.
For PVC, the faux leather manufacturers produce ethylene dichloride by salt and petroleum. Then they convert the substance into polyvinyl chloride resin. Artificial leather manufacturers add plasticizers to bind it to the base fabric and make it flexible. They then melt the plastic and overlay it on the base textile. Once the plastic is bound to the base fabric, the leather manufacturers colour it in the desired shade. Faux leather can be coloured in any shade, same as the leather or any new colour. Later on, it is cut into required shapes and sizes and sold by the yard.
