The test method is unsuitable for very soft leathers such as chamois whose thickness cannot be accurately measured by the test method cited.


1.1 This test method covers the determination of the apparent density of specimens of leather. This test method does not apply to wet blue or wet white.

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
