A tough, imitation-leather fiberboard. Leather board is made from brown mechanical wood pulp along with one or more other types of pulp (jute, manilla or recycled paper) mixed with up to 75% scrap leather pulp. The sheets are compressed to form a heavy pressboard that is used for mountings, bindings, and exercise book covers.
