ÂThe circular rub test is now offered in addition to the Veslic rub, whereby the leather is subjected to rubbing backwards and forwards with either a wet or dry pad of fabric. For all colour fastness tests, the number of reciprocations and the force applied to the sample can be changed according to the suppliersâ requirements which will vary according to the type of article and the amount of wear which it is reasonable to expect. Colour fastness tests are undertaken for quality assurance, to ensure that the product is fit for purpose and will meet consumer expectations during normal use.Â The Laboratory also offers a suite of chemical tests to ensure that leather products comply with legal requirements in respect of potentially harmful and toxic substances such as Formaldehyde, Azo dyes, Chromium VI and Chlorinated Phenols. Organic Laboratory Manager Ben Halmshaw says âThe circular wet and dry rub test is a necessary addition to our portfolio and we are really pleased to be able to offer our customers the range of leather tests that they require to make sure that articles are both compliant with legislation and meet the necessary quality standards.â To discuss the New Leather Wear Test or to enquire about chemical testing please contact The Laboratory T: 0871 871 6020 or E: firstname.lastname@example.org
