Since upholstery leather is considered a very high-tech product, a long service life is expected by the costumer. However, this type of leather can undergo extreme environmental conditions that may cause premature ageing. This work deals with the study of the effect of temperature, relative humidity, and UV radiation on leather ageing. Leathers with chrome tannage were exposed to weathering effects using a climatic chamber in order to identify the most important variables affecting this weatheri...
