Sustainability

Environmental Sustainability is one of the priorities of the Fratelli Guarino Conceria.

Respect for the environment is an integral part of the design and production phase of our leathers. We minimize environmental impacts with a purification plant that is at the forefront of maximizing the consumption of energy vectors and cubic meters of water.

All these parameters are shown in our product data sheets and monitored according to the ISO 14001 standard.

Chemical safety

The company has established a strict protocol to guarantee a safe and compliant product.

Every single production lot before being placed on the market is subjected to a series of “TESTs” in which it is ascertained that all the CHEMICAL parameters are within the established limits.

The “TEST” we perform are:

  • Determination Cr VI
  • Determination of Phthalates
  • Formaldehyde determination
  • Presence of Prohibited Aromatic Amines
  • Presence of chlorinated phenols

Technological security

Depending on the intended use there is a protocol of PHYSICAL TESTS.

In this way, we want to ensure that the products meet the technological characteristics necessary for our customers to carry out their work.

With the available instruments we can perform the following tests:

  • Light fastness
  • Color fastness to water
  • Color migration on PVC
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Resistance to tearing
  • Resistance to rubbing
  • Adhesion of the Finishing
