Textile Testing

Textile Testing

In today’s competitive market, consumers pay more attention to the quality of material and fiber, than to their cost and charges. Therefore, textiles need not only be stylish but also consistently well-made and free from hazardous substances. Before a textile material or a product is put into the market for consumer application, it needs to be checked and evaluated for its quality, reliability, and performance. The properties of the material are checked at different stages of its production and practice under various conditions.

Routine process testing and quality record testing constitute the different classes of testing that are carried out on a textile material or a finished good. Textile testing forms an essential part of textile production and distribution.
