Leather Testing Attachments

Lastometer Test - Leather Testing

Slot Tear Rig - Leather Testing

Stitch Line Rig - Leather Testing

This is also known as the 'Ball Burst
Test' and identifies the strength
and distension of the grain. 
The MT-LQplus exceeds the
requirements of the Standard as
the test is made without stopping
the test to measure grain crack.

Slot Tear Rig
The slot tear test or Baumann Tear
Test  measures the force to tear a 
slotted sample apart at a constant 
speed. While the Standard only
requires the maximum force to be 
measured, average tear force, force
maxima and minima and work done 
can also be measured automatically.

Stitch Line Rig
Used for measurement of the strength 
of upper or lining material at the stitch 
line of footwear originating from either 
a single or multiple holes in the sample. 
The Stitch Line Rig meets the 
requirement of BS 5131.



To measure the residual deformation of the test sample after cyclic 
biaxial strain.

Adhesive Peel Test

To measure peel strength of adhesive joints where one or both substrates
are flexible.

Tensile Test

To measure tensile strength, elongation at specific load, elongation at break,
modulus, load and elongation at grain crack.
