Society and consumers constantly place higher demands on companies and their products. Furthermore, the REACH regulation means that your organisation must have complete information and control over which chemicals your products contain. It is especially important to have control over dangerous chemicals in children's items and products with skin contact such as clothing and accessories.

In our laboratories, we can perform most tests and analyzes regarding textile materials.In addition, we have the possibility to perform tests according to custom standards or develop new methods to measure a specific characteristic. Many of our methods are accredited in accordance with SS-EN ISO 17025.

We can assist you and your organisation to assure the quality of products throughout the production chain, from development and material selection to receiving inspection and complaints.
