Gambier used as a sample consist of five types, two types of imported products used in the industrial processing of leather with code A (liquid) and B (powder), and 3 Gambier local products with C code (block), D (cylinder), E (cylinder). Gambier is tested using SNI 06-6051-1999 about vegetable tanning agents test and the results are compared with SNI 01-3391-2000 about Gambier. Gambier Characteristics which need to be identified are water content, total extract, total soluble, non tannin, tannin and pH level. The result of all 5 samples for Gambier tanning levels test does not comply Gambier SNI 01-3391-2000 standard. For water content, only Gambier A that does not qualify because of its liquid form, while the insoluble substances of Gambier B do not meet the requirements. Nevertheless, all Gambier can still be used as a pre-tanning, tanning or re-tanning agent according to finished leather articles, except Gambier A that only for re-tanning agent.
