Our extensive and specialized knowledge of leather technology and raw material morphology, combined with optical and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) allows us to answer many of the questions that you might have concerning your product.
Light microscopy is used to identify the morphological features that define the ANIMAL SPECIES. And our research-grade microscope incorporates an advanced image analysis system to measure FINISH THICKNESS. The instrument is calibrated with a graduated scale directly traceable to a primary NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) standard. This guarantees accurate and precise measurements down to as low as 1 micron (0.001mm).
