Preparation of Waste Leather Polymer Composite

...with low cost, high durability, more effectiveness, moreover reduction of environmental pollution. Leather industry is one of the highly environmental pollution creating industry. Solid wastes are being generated from the tanneries 88 metric tons/day on an average basis in my country, Bangladesh. In my research work I have attempted to reuse, recycle the leather waste. Moreover the aim is to reduce the environmental pollution. My research work was conducted to make bioapplicable materials from polyester resin reinforced with scrap leather fiber. The resulting polymer composite has been named “Leather Plastic”. One of the most important objectives of my research work is to use natural leather fiber which is biodegradable. So a definite amount of polyester resin could be replaced by natural fiber, which is very important to our environment. Manufacturing process: The composite was prepared by Wet Layup method. Leather fiber was treated with Unsaturated Polyester Resin and then fabricated and characterized. The matrix was prepared by mixing Unsaturated Polyester Resin with Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) solution. The grinded leather fiber was used as the reinforcement. After mixing the matrix with the reinforcement, peroxide was used as a radical initiator to induce polymerizations. After curing period the mechanical properties of the composite was characterized. Test performed on Leather Plastic: Tensile Strength, Elongation, Young's modulus, Izod Impact Strength , Bending......

Leather Manufacturing Process

...------------------------------------------------- Leather production processes From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Leather is a durable and flexible material created by the tanning of animal rawhide and skin, often cattle hide. It can be produced through manufacturing processes ranging from cottage industry to heavy industry. The leather manufacturing process is divided into three sub-processes: preparatory stages, tanning and crusting. All true leathers will undergo these sub-processes. A further sub-process, surface coating may be added into the sequence. The list of operations that leathers undergo vary with the type of leather. Contents   [hide]  * 1 Production management * 2 Preparatory stages * 3 Tanning * 4 Crusting * 5 Surface coating * 6 Environmental impact * 7 References ------------------------------------------------- Production management[edit] The leather making process is in general restricted to batch processing, but if the surface coating sub-process is added then some continuous processing can be included. The operation flow has to follow the preparatory → tanning → crusting → surface coating sub-process order without deviation, but some of the sub-processes can be omitted to make certain leathers (or partially tanned/ untanned products). ------------------------------------------------- Preparatory stages[edit] The preparatory stages are when the hide/skin is prepared for tanning.[1] During the preparatory stages......

The leather industry has undergone a dramatic transformation from a mere exporter of raw materials in the sixties to that of value added finished products in the nineties. Policy initiatives taken by the Government of India since 1973 have been instrumental to such a transformation. In the wake of globalisation of Indian economy supported with liberalised economic and trade policies since 1991, the industry is poised for further growth to achieve greater share in the global trade.

Leather Sector

...Submitted by WWW.ASSIGNMENTPOINT.COM Footwear is a traditional export item of Bangladesh. Footwear produced from high quality leather in the country enjoys a good reputation worldwide for their quality. The country, however, has a growing success in this sector. The business experts believe that export earnings from the sector could be substantially increased if we use advanced technology to produce high quality footwear. This, however, depends on adoption of appropriate policies on the part of the government and business community to develop the sector. The products must be improved to satisfy the quality requirements demanded by the consumers of the international market especially of the developed world. The low wage rate and poor enforcement of environmental laws and rules have given the country’s footwear sector a comparative advantage in the world market. Moreover, the country enjoys duty exemption under the GSP (Generalized System of Preference) from the most of the importing countries of the developed world. Bangladesh also enjoys a reduction of Tariff and other non-Tariff barriers from WTO (World Trade Organization). While this provide an opportunity for a country like Bangladesh to boost up its export. 1.2 Objectives: The objectives of this study are as follows: 1.2.1 To know about the environment of selected products sectors- Footwear. 1.2.2 To know about the overall international trade statistics......
