What is Recycled PVB Leather?

Recycled PVB (RPVB), also known as Recycled Polyvinyl Butyral, is a synthetic leather made by recycling windshields from abandoned cars building glass. As a polymeric material, this post-consumer PVB leather is mostly used by upholstery, packaging, and automotive industries.

How is PVB Leather made?

Recycled PVB leather is made by using waste laminated PVB from glass recycling plants. First, non-PVB materials (metals, wood, or glass) are separated using recycling facilities. The PVB film is then cleaned, extruded and filtered, down to small pieces to remove any contaminants. Once turning into recycled PVB pellets and coating resins, it can be used to create new finished products.

Why do we use PVB Leather?

Recycled PVB leather's unique structure provides versatility for wide applications, and it is the best alternative to PVC. RPVB is eco-friendly and harmless to human by reducing carbon footprint while increasing the material health of products. It does not include toxic chemicals like Dimethylformamide (DMF) and Dimethylfumarate (DMFu).
