Standard Test Method for Measuring Thickness of Leather Test Specimens

Significance and Use

This test method shall be used where precise dimensions are necessary for calculation of properties expressed in physical units. It is not intended to replace practical thickness measurements based on commercial portable tools, nor is it implied that thickness measurements made by the two procedures will agree exactly.


1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the thickness of leather test specimens in which the dimensions of the specimens are used directly in determining the results of tests for physical properties. this test method does not apply to wet blue.

1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
