Leather testing machine is used to determine the chemical and physical properties of leather, such as water spots, rub fastness, adhesion, tear strength and others which is carried out in the testing laboratory. Leather is a flexible and durable material used in clothing, belt, footwear, handbags, and luggage, etc. To maintain quality standards of leather, it is essential to check the quality of raw stock such as chemicals like sodium sulfide, lime, and sulfuric acid and this is efficiently driving the leather testing machine market across the globe. Accordingly, to get standard leather of required quality for a specific end use, it is necessary to use the leather testing machine.
The leather testing machine has the ability to measure the performance of leather under different parameters such as adhesion, tear, and stretch to make sure that the leather meets appropriate performance needs for safety and quality administration. These factors are boosting the leather testing machine market.
