Understanding the Functionality of BALLY Water Penetration Tester for Leather Testing

Leather is a versatile and sought-after material known for its durability and unique appeal. To ensure the quality and performance of leather products, related testing is crucial. One essential tool in the leather testing process is the BALLY Water Penetration Tester GT-KC06. In this article, we delve into the functionality of this Penetration device and its significance in leather testing.

The Importance of Leather Water Penetration Testing

Before we explore the features of the Bally Leather Waterproof Testing Machine, let's understand why leather water penetration testing is vital. Leather products, such as shoes, bags, and garments, are often exposed to various environmental conditions, including encounters with water. Testing the water resistance and penetration capabilities of leather helps determine its durability, longevity, and overall quality. By subjecting leather samples to controlled water penetration tests, manufacturers and quality control experts can assess their performance and make informed decisions about their suitability for specific applications.

Introducing the BALLY Water Penetration Tester GT-KC06

BALLY Water Penetration Tester is used for determining the resistance of leather, artificial leather, fabric and so on footwear upper material to water penetration on flexing, in order to assess the suitability for the end use. Let's take a closer look at its functionality.

Standards of Bally Waterproofness Tester:

DIN53338, ISO 5403-1, ISO 17702, EN ISO 20344-2021 section 6.13, EN 344-1 section 5.12,

EN ISO20347 section 6.3.1, AS/NZS 2210.2 section 6.13, QB/T 3903.17, GB/T20991 section 6.13


1. Precise Water Penetration Testing

A rectangular test specimen is bent partly round, and secured between, two cylindrical clamps so as to form a trough. The trough is then immersed in water and the clamps oscillate at a constant speed so that the specimen is repeatedly flexed. The time taken for water penetration through the test specimen to occur is recorded. The mass of water absorbed by, and transmitted through, the test specimen can also be measured.

2. User-Friendly Interface and Controls

The BALLY Water Penetration Tester Of Leather features an intuitive interface, allowing operators to set test parameters, control water flow rates, and monitor testing progress effortlessly. Its user-friendly controls ensure that leather testing professionals can operate the device efficiently and obtain reliable results.

3. Robust Construction and Design

Durability is a key aspect of any testing equipment, and the GT-KC06 doesn't disappoint. Constructed from high-quality materials, it is designed to withstand rigorous testing conditions, ensuring its longevity and consistent performance. 

Utilizing the Leather Water Penetration Tester

1. Adjust the movement stroke required for the test (15%,10%,7.5%,5%).The eccentric must be consistent with the percentage of bit holes.

2. Turn on the power and enter the test page.

3. Use the jog button [Micro M]on the test page to move the distance betweenthe two fixtures to the maximum position(40mm)and align at the red line.

4. Install the sample (75x60mm), the side length 60mm is the direction of 15% compression,and the side length 75mm is the clamping direction of the U-shaped fixture.

5. Insert the electrode and pour the conductive copper spring (17g).

6. Lift up the sink with a certain amount of water. Insert the pin to fix the position of the sink.                        

7. The water in the sink should reach the water mark level of the fixture.Note: This is the water level mark on the fixture.

8. Enter the setting interface, you can set the test stop condition [Stop Mode].

9. Press the Start button, the machine starts testing.

10. Within the set number of times, if the sample leaks, the equipment will automatically stop.



The BALLY Water Penetration Tester GT-KC06 is a valuable tool for leather manufacturers, quality control professionals, and researchers in the industry. By understanding the functionality of this tester, professionals can ensure the production of high-quality and durable leather products.
