Textile TRIALS

The changing textile industry requires strict quality control to ensure the durability and suitability of products. Testing is necessary to ensure that your products meet these quality requirements and to protect the interests of the manufacturer and the consumer.

This variety of tests is carried out on fibers, threads, fabrics or garments, whether knitted or flat woven, as well as their accessories.

The tests are based on international standards and norms, such as AATCC, ASTM, ISO, CPSC, CFR, NTP, BS, DIN, JIS, UNI, GB/T and regulations such as CAL-PROP-65, CAN (Andean Community) among others, which guarantee reliable and reproducible results.
