Committee on Leather Reactivates Subcommittee on Upholstery

ASTM International Committee D31 on Leather has decided to reactivate Subcommittee D31.05 on Upholstery. After a period of inactivity, the subcommittee was combined with Subcommittee D31.04 on Apparel. However, the last two years have seen an increase in the level of participation from people involved in upholstery leather manufacturing, so the subcommittees have again been separated.

Subcommittee D31.05 has one new proposed standard in the works, WK6072, Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Leather (Rotary Platform, Double-Head Method). The proposed standard covers a type of rating abrasion test often used for automobile leather. Interested parties are invited to participate in the development of WK6072, as well as in other standards activities of Subcommittee D31.05. //
