Over the years, there has been a growing interest in the leather market for flame retardants. It is very important to determine the flammability of a leather especially when it is used in products for car upholstery, armchairs for hotels and even private homes. In the case of fires, in addition to the danger of burns, there can be issues with poisoning from combustion gases and production of dense gases. Dark fumes, in fact, are often the primary cause of deaths as they can prevent the occupants from rapidly evacuating the premises.
