Standard Test Method for Cracking Resistance of Leather
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
|ICS Code (Leather and furs):||59.140.30|
This test method covers the determination of the resistance of leather to cracking when the leather is bent or folded with the grain (or finish) surface on the outside of the bend. Heavy leathers (for example, harness, belt, strap, bag, case, and so forth) are usually bent around a mandrel using either mechanical resistance (for example, clamp, vise, and so forth) or by hand. Lighter leathers (for example, shoe upper, upholstery, garment, glove, and so forth) are usually given a sharp double-fold (crosswise) bend after cooling to a low temperature. This test method does not apply to wet blue.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
