Material and Textiles

Discover more about our textile testing and quality control capabilities​

Material and Textiles testing determines the quality, safety and suitability of both the raw material and manufactured textiles for both consumer products and industry-specific needs.

For some industries or categories of products, there are strict specifications and requirements to comply with to ensure both safety and quality. Our lab offers a wide range of textile testing and quality controltests to ensure compliance is met and standards upheld – for both research and development stages and manufactured final products.
