Benefit on the market from a strong partner for neutral proof of conformity.

Whether it is the tensile strength of upholstery fabrics, the colour fastness of textiles or the testing of clothing for human-ecological product safety: Independent quality assessments and compliance with harmful substance limit values play an important role in positioning on the market.

Our textile technology and chemical tests help you to comply with international standards, legal regulations and individual customer requirements. In particular, tests for harmful substances ensure effective consumer protection against chemicals that are used in textile production and can be detected as residues in the product.

We carry out our tests on raw, intermediate and end products of all processing stages of the textile production chain, including leather products and accessories. They are aimed not only at brand owners, retailers and textile producers, but also at importers and processors.

Our textile tests are as individual as your requirements.

Are you worried about being targeted by NGO campaigns? We’ll help you conduct the right testing. And to ensure you really stand out in the market, we can conduct testing on factors that go beyond conventional standards, even allowing you to promote specific topics in campaigns or programmes.

Differentiation that really secures competitive advantage (and validates product claims)

Keen to set yourself apart and highlight the qualitative superiority of your products? We’ll help you in the most objective way possible by providing comparative product tests.

Our textile testing determines conformity with legal requirements, standards, international specifications and internal quality guidelines.

Textile technology testing

  • Quality testing (colour fastness, fibre fineness, dimensional stability, strength of fabrics)
  • Performance testing (such as water resistance, waterproofness, breathability/permeability to air, pilling, washing tests, etc.)
  • Determination of fibre composition (Textile Labelling Act)

Testing for chemicals and harmful substances

Textile labelling and fibre composition

Determining the qualitative and quantitative attributes of yarns and fabrics is crucial if you want to identify materials correctly in accordance with EU textile labelling directives.

We identify fibres and determine their properties in three ways – by using microscopes, mechanical testing or chemical testing.
