5. Take the average of the values u200bu200bof the three different points of the test. Note: The distance between two adjacent test points is not less than 15cm. The diameter of the test ring: ∮u003d35 mm. The shrink ring is suitable for detecting shoe leather test rings. Diameter: ∮u003d25 mm The shrink ring is suitable for detecting leather for sofas.
