Test centres

International buyers and users of leather are increasingly discerning with regard to the technical and chemical properties of the leather they purchase.
The specifications stipulated by purchasing officers demand:

  • Adherence to international standards and regulations (REACH, Biocidal Directive, LWG standards, Blue Angel, etc.)
  • Clearly defined physical performances (softness, abrasion resistance, lightfastness, heatfastness, fungus resistance, dye levelness, waterproof effect, etc)

All chemical products developed at ATC are tested to ensure they meet all required standards. To meet all these specifications, ATC has its own physico-chemical analysis laboratory fitted with cutting-edge equipment such as:

  • Physics measuring instruments:
    • Dynamometer
