Leather Materials for Book Printing Jobs
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 2/17/2011  Keywords: Leather Materials for Book Printing

For a hardcover book printing services job, we may have the difficulty in choosing the materials for cover mounted on grey board, especially that there are genuine leather, bonded leather and artificial leather for considering. Here we would like to introduce each ones character and difference between them used in book printing jobs for your reference.

Genuine leather: this kind of leather is made from animal skin directly. Modern leather manufacturing industry is very mature, many genuine leather materials for special purpose can be produced. Considering the character of hardcover book printing, the leather materials for bookbinding should be not very inflexible, easy to mount and suitable for debossing or radiofrequency stamping etc. So the calfskin, lambskin and some hogskin usually are used. Because of low volume of production and longer production lead time, the genuine leather is very expensive than other leather materials. Only library books, encyclopaedia, dictionary and other books designed for longer storage would be considered for genuine leather.

Bonded leather: it is made from genuine leather fiber, crosslinking fiber, resin and other supplementary ingredients. Firstly, genuine leather or bonded leather are shattered into very small skin fiber. Secondly, the leather mixted with natural rubber, resin and other supplementary ingredients are compressed into very thin cake, and then the cake will be heated to melt so that each layer could be cohesioned. Finally, after drying, cutting, embossing and other finishing, the cake will become ultimate bonded leather. Similar with genuine leather, the bonded leather have the advantages of fine absorbability and air permeability. Fine bonded leather feels soft and flexible, resistance to friction and extreme temprature exchanging. The formula of bonded leather is flexible and variable. Different thickness, hardness and intensity bonded leather could be produced easily after changing the formula silghtly. After various debossing, fantastic texture, color and coating bonded leather are available. The leather is very cheap than genuine leather (about only 1/10). So if the book printing job have budget problem, the booded leather can be considered to replace genuine leather.

Artificial leather: it is made from cloth and wool fabric as base layer, polrvinyl chloride and polyurethanes as coating layer. Normally it is not ventilate absolutely. But along with the advancement of science and technology in China, artificial leather technology also matures, the quality is improved significantly, especially its permeability, softness and appearance etc could be very similair with genuine leather. Artificial leather is very cheaper than bonded leather. For example, PU (polyurethanes coating) price is only 1/3 of bonded leather. Now good PU materials are popular to bookbinding. With the advantage of lower price, PU materials have many texture and easy to finish on surface.

For a notebook or book printing services job, if you want a leather feeling case but ecnomical prices, now you get it. Image Printing advise you how to choose the leather materials for your book printing quotes.
