EL-19 EL-19F

This equipment has the main purpose of test the behaviour of leather, artificial leather and similar sheet materials when folded repeatedly. The machine is equipped with 8 workstations. Model EL-19F is fitted inside a cold chamber, so it is possible to perform tests since room temperature until -25°C (standard) or -30°C (on reqest). The present method has the double objective of determine the solidity of leathers when submitted to repeated flexing cycles assimilated to rubbing movements and also to prepare the samples to submit to leather fastness to rubbing because this kind of flexing may affect the finished surface of unused (new) leather.
