Automotive Testing

BLC can provide leather interior testing for the automotive sector at our UKAS accredited laboratory.  We are the only testing laboratory dedicated to leather testing.

Leather interior automotive testing is conducted to a wide range of different standards depending upon the target manufacturer.

We can offer leather interior automotive testing according to most of the other international automotive manufacturers' leather specifications (with the exception of a few specialist tests). Key automotive tests are fogging, ageing, heat and humidity, lightfastness, and emissions.

BLC can set leather specifications for members on request to ensure appropriate performance from leather and finished product.  Please see our leather and product specification page.

BLC is one of the fastest testing laboratories in Europe and our aim is to deliver results within 3-5 working days (test permitting).  Established for over 90 years we have the technical pedigree in testing to ensure fast accurate support.

Whilst many testing laboratories are only able to supply simple pass/fail test reports; BLC is able to offer additional support and advice immediately upon report of a sample failure.  In addition our experience of different material testing means that we ensure the appropriate test methods are used at all times.
