AASTMT IC Egypt

AASTMT Leather Technology Center offers the following tests:

(1)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of Thickness
Standard number ISO 2589:2016(E), IULTCS/IUP 4:2016(E)
Scope Determining the thickness of leather. This method is applicable to all types of leather of any tannage. The measurement is valid for both the whole leather and a test sample.
(2)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of Apparent density and mass per unit area
Standard number ISO 2420:2017(E), IULTCS/IUP 5:2017(E)
Scope Determining the apparent density and mas per unit area of leather. It is applicable to all leathers.
(3)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of tensile strength and percentage extension
Standard number ISO 3376:2011(E), IULTCS/IUP 6:2011(E)
Scope Determining the tensile strength, elongation at a specified load and elongation at break of leather. It is applicable to all types of leathers.
(4)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of tear load - Single edge tear
Standard number ISO 3377-1:2011(E), IULTCS/IUP 40-1:2011(E)
Scope Determining the tear strength of leather using a single edge tear. Sometimes is described as a trouser tear. It is applicable to all types of leather
(5)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of tear load - Double edge tear
Standard number ISO 3377-2:2016(E), IULTCS/IUP 8:2016(E)
Scope Determining the tear strength of leather using a double edged tear. Sometimes is described as a Baumann tear. It is applicable to all types of leather
(6)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Measurement of stitch tear resistance
Standard number ISO 23910:2019(E), IULTCS/IUP 44:2019(E)
Scope Determining the stitch tear resistance of leather. It can be used on all leathers but it is particularly suitable for leathers over 1.2 mm in thickness.
(7)
Test name Leather - Test for adhesion of finish
Standard number ISO 11644:2009(E), IULTCS/IUP 44: 2009(E)
Scope Measuring the adhesion of the finish to leather or the adhesion between two adjacent layers of finish. The method is valid for all finished leathers with a smooth surface that can be bonded to an adherent plate without the adhesive penetrating into the finish. Preliminary experiments might be necessary to determine whether these conditions are met. This test method is valid for finished leathers with a finish-coat thickness of at least 15 µm.
(8)
Test name Leather - Determination of flex resistance - Flexometer method
Standard number ISO 5402-1:2017(E), IULTCS/IUP 20:2017(E)
Scope Determining the wet or dry flex resistance of leather and finishes applied to leather. It is applicable to all types of flexible leather below 3.0 mm in thickness.
(9)
Test name Footwear - Test Methods for upper and lining - Flex resistance
Standard number ISO 17694:2016(E)
Scope Determining the flex resistance of uppers and lining irrespective of the material in order to assess the suitability for the end use.
(10)
Test name Footwear - Test methods for uppers and lining - Water vapor permeability and absorption
Standard number ISO 17699:2003(E)
Scope Specifying two test methods for assessing, respectively, the water vapor absorption of uppers or complete upper assembly irrespective of the material, in order to assess the suitability for the end use.
(11)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of water absorption by capillary action (wicking)
Standard number ISO 19074:2015(E), IULTCS/IUP 57:2015(E)
Scope Determining the rate of absorption of water by capillary action or wicking in leathers. Applicable to all types of leather.
(12)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of water vapor permeability
Standard number ISO 14268:2012(E), IULTCS/IUP 15:2012(E)
Scope Determining of water vapor permeability of leather and provides alternative methods of sample preparation.
(13)
Test name Leather - Physical and Mechanical Tests - Determination of water vapor absorption
Standard number ISO 17229:2016(E), IULTCS/IUP 42:2016(E)
Scope Determining the water vapor absorption of leather. The method is applicable for all leathers but is particularly relevant for leathers intended for footwear uppers and linings.
