Standard Test Method for Breaking Strength of Leather by the Grab Method
|Publication Date:||1 September 2016|
|ICS Code (Leather and furs):||59.140.30|
This test method covers the determination of the breaking strength of leather by the grab method. It is intended for use on light, soft leathers; boarded, sueded, or embossed leathers tested on a specimen in the form of a rectangle piece; narrow strap, welt, lace, and round belt leathers; or other leathers that cannot be accurately tested by Test Method D2209. This test method does not apply to wet blue.
The test method is not recommended for breaking loads over 500 lbf (2200 N) because of slippage of the specimen in the jaws.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
