How to find out the quality of the leather? – a question that often arises 


Finished product is tested for such indicators of leather quality:

  • the load-elongation;

  • tensile strength;

  • chemical analysis;

  • resistance of the coating to bending and wet friction;

  • water vapor permeability and water resistance;

  • water permeability and moisture content;

  • color fastness to wet and dry rubbing.


    And this is only a part of the indicators by which the quality of the leather is measured.
