Textile testingWe offer a range of physical, colour fastness and chemical tests on many types of textile fabrics as well as performance tests for abrasion resistance, pilling, tear strength, tensile strength and seam slippage. The constructional tests we offer include mass, threads, yarn count and yarn twist.

The range of tests we offer include the following:

  • Abrasion resistance, pilling, tensile strength, tear resistance, seam slippage, scuffing and pile loss
