Special physical investigation

Special devices are available for selected investigations, for instance:


  • scanning electron microscope with EDX
  • system "KES" in accordance with Kawabata to determine tensile, shearing, bending, compression, friction and roughness parameters as characterization of handle
  • image processing system with programmed evaluation unit to characterize quantitatively surface profiles and inside structures of materials

Quality assessment for sun protective textiles

  • development of methods and procedures for an objective assessment of product quality of sun protective textiles in cooperation with "Verband innenliegender Sicht- und Sonnenschutz e.V. (VIS)"
  • comprehensive testing procedure with up to 11 single tests for:
    • color fastness, surface and dimensional stability
    • light transmission and reflexion
    • static load tests for climate change and abrasion
  • granting of signet "Tested by STFI" after passing the tests
  • test rig for load resistance of complex sun protective units with all components
