Leather gloves have many advantages, but they are expensive and pay more attention to cleaning and maintenance. Advantages and disadvantages of leather gloves? What maintenance oil is used?
Advantages and disadvantages of leather gloves:
In winter, leather gloves are trendy gloves. The leather surface is soft and smooth, plump and elastic, and has a good thermal effect. The warmth retention effect of PU leather gloves is average, but compared with wool gloves, it is better than wool gloves.
Advantages of leather gloves: The whole piece of leather is cut and sewn, warm, warm, cold, and windproof, wear-resistant and cracking, and has a long service life.
Disadvantages of leather gloves: Compared with gloves made of other materials, leather gloves are slightly more expensive; it also pays attention to cleaning and maintenance.
Cow scalp: Most protective gloves are made of cow scalp, mainly scraped from the ribs.
Features: soft, nimble, comfortable, good wear resistance, tear resistance, puncture resistance.
Cow Double Leather: Gloves made of double leather are mostly used for handling items and heat protection. Usually, the double hide of the back of the cow is used, the shoulder is relatively rare, and the quality of the double hide of the rib is poor, so it is rarely used.
Features: The cost is lower than cowhide, and the wear resistance is good.
2. Goat leather
Single-layer leather: You can't pull out two skins with ordinary thickness, and the advantage is that it is lighter than cowhide. Because the original thickness is used, it is suitable for gloves with better mechanical resistance. Because the fibers are not cut, the wear and puncture resistance is enhanced, and if it is polished, the contact effect will be better.
Features: soft, nimble, good wear resistance, tear resistance, puncture resistance. Its wear resistance depends on the thickness of the leather, and the commonly used thickness is 1.1-1.3MM (better mechanical properties) or 0.6-1.0MM (better softness and dexterity).
Single-layer leather: Due to its poor abrasion resistance and tear resistance, it is usually only used to make ordinary gloves. The thickness of lambskin is directly proportional to its dexterity. The thinner it is, the smarter and more comfortable it is to wear.
Features: Soft and dexterous.
Which maintenance oil to use for leather gloves:
Generally, professional maintenance oil is not required. There are lanolin and petroleum jelly, which are easy to use and cheap. But when cleaning, special leather care oil containing detergent must be used. Taking good care of leather gloves can make them last longer.
When the leather gets wet, it must be dealt with immediately, blotted dry with a dry towel, and then placed in a ventilated place to dry naturally. Do not expose it to the sun, otherwise, the leather will be damaged and hardened, which will affect its use.
