Fabric Testing

Discover more about our fabric testing lab and expert services

Fabric testing is integral to measuring product quality and performance, and to meet regulatory compliance and industry standards in various regions. Robust and thorough testing assures both manufacturers, resellers and consumers of the product quality, by examining the physical and structural properties of the fabric and the overall performance – including pilling, shrinkage, strength and many other factors.

Our fabric testing lab offers an extensive range of fabric tests, dependent on requirements, industries or markets and can tailor the right testing protocol for you.
