Synthetic leather, also known as faux leather, artificial leather, rexine, vinyl or leatherette, is a man made fabric made using PVC or polyurethane (PU) that is treated and
dyed to resemble real leather. Artificial Leather is intended to substitute the natural leather in fields where a leather-like finish is required but the actual material
is cost-prohibitive, unsuitable, or unusable for ethical reasons.
Synthetic leather is a cheaper, a more versatile and an ethically friendly alternative to real leather, which is made from tanned animal hides.
We are leading manufacturers of PVC/PU Artificial Leather using latest technology called Transfer Coating Process. Our capacity is around 6 Million Meter Length Per year. We can produce PVC Coated Leather fabric as per customer requirement of shade, embossing pattern and print having fabric thickness of 0.6mm to 3mm.
Synthetic Leather is made by transfer coating process, using transfer coating machines. PVC/PU Coating process is done by applying thin layer called Top Coat
of PVC/PU Paste over special type of paper called Embossed release paper using coating blade or Knife making a uniform coat over the length of the paper.
This layer is dried in a heated oven and is taken to foaming process. In foaming process special type of PVC Paste is applied to the previous Top coat and is heated in oven. Heat makes chemical changes in the paste and this paste rises to give bulkiness to the fabric.
Finally a Polyester or cotton fabric is pasted on bottom as backing fabric and after drying release paper is taken out giving PVC Coated Fabric.
This fabric can be used for further printing, lamination, Lacquers and embossing to give variety of patterns.
