*1 Procedure as per BS EN ISO 3376:2002 except it is not corrected for thickness as this is not applicable to ELeather
*2 All pigments used meet BWS 7 or higher. Pigments are tested in accordance with ISO 4892-2, Cycle 5 and EN ISO 877, and assessed against BlueWool Scale 1-8 as described in ISO 105 B02, where BWS 8 denotes very high and BWS 1 lowest light fastness. The Fastness to Light of the final ELeather Product is dependant on the colour.
