frequently does your laboratory test a piece of leather or
leather product and it fails? Does that result help your client?
What they really need to know is why it failed and what can
they do to overcome the problem.
Leather Wise we do not offer routine leather testing –
the market is too competitive and so we are leaving that to
you! But we do have extensive experience in the testing of
leather, what are realistic expectations and the reasons why
it could have failed a particular test. We have access to
highly sophisticated laboratory equipment such as scanning
electron microscopy, X-ray microanalysis, FTIR and DSC that
can help us piece together the jigsaw and determine the cause
of a failure. Once we have determined the cause, we an then
offer advice on how to rectify it or prevent it occurring
possibilities are innumerable, but typical problems that we
can help with are:
does a garment leather fail to meet the requirement
for tear strength?
Why does an upholstery leather have poor fastness to
Why does a waterproof shoe upper leather leak?
Is the test used appropriate for that particular leather?
service is charged for at an hourly rate and is very competitively
priced. A test failure may mean that your client cannot
sell their product. If we can explain the failure
and help put it right enabling that product to reach the
market place, our service is priceless.
