BLC leads the way in testing technology

Nov '08
BLC Leather Technology Centre Ltd, Northampton is a global leader in leather and footwear testing. In a market that is increasingly competitive and where quality and speed of service are vital to commercial success, BLC has invested in the latest technology to ensure that it remains at the forefront of chemical testing technology.

With the increasing need for brands and retailers to reassure their customers that leather and footwear products contain no potentially harmful chemicals, BLC has seen a significant rise in demand for chemical testing.

To cope with this demand and the need to deliver fast results, BLC has invested in the latest analytical testing machines including Liquid Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry (LCMS) to detect toxic organic compounds and Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) to detect heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium and lead. These new technologies improve accuracy and delivery times providing next day chemical testing if required, making BLC the market leader in this competitive environment.

The determination of toxic substances is now commonplace in the leather and footwear sector. To back this up BLC offers technical advice and practical problem solving support anywhere in the world to support manufacturers when failures occur.

Looking to the future, BLC will continue to position itself as the global leader in leather technology with ongoing investment in technology and people.
