About the ST300 Softness Tester

The ST300 Softness Tester is a precision instrument that provides a dependable means of measuring leather softness. The tester is non-destructive so does not require samples to be removed from the leather prior to testing. This enables a quality system to be set up between supplier and customer whenever leather softness is an important factor.

The ST300 Softness Tester is available as a conventional analogue unit graduated in 0.1mm divisions, or as an electronic digital unit displaying figures to 0.01 mm. The digital version features an RS 232 interface enabling links to be made to a computer or printer for SPC options.
