Low tear strength – Case #091

May 24, 2013


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: a lot of 10,000 sqft of cowhide sueded split failed the tear strength test.

Impactiva rejected the lot and asked the tannery to remake the order. If this leather reached the footwear factory it could have ripped off during the production of the shoes. Leather like this has very low resistance and it cannot be reworked.
