Competence in Testing

Accredited Test Lab



For you and the quality of your products – The range of our services

The independent, accredited testing laboratory offers customers a wide range of testing services. The core of our range of services is the testing according to national and international standards, recognized standards for product labels (STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®), technical delivery conditions or industry-specific regulations (SAE).

Beginning with the starting materials such as fibres and threads are also taken into account as well as semi-finished textile products as woven, nonwoven knitted, braided or composites structures. The test of final products as a "system test" (e.g. personal protective equipment or load securing) complete this part of the range of services.

As flexible as possible. You haven't found a standard? The STFI test laboratory is flexibly accredited for some specialist areas in accordance with the DAkkS regulations. The flexibility according to Category I allows the test laboratory, for example, to verify the free selection of standardized or equivalent test methods within a defined test area and to include them in the accreditation.

Individual products require individual solutions. Here we support customers with the characterization and quality assessment of their products for which no normative specifications are available. Through the interdisciplinary cooperation of various test competencies (textile physics, chemical analysis, electrostatics ...) we try to transfer, adapt or develop new methods – development of test procedures.

What if the quality is questioned? To this end, we offer you a large pool of interdisciplinary skills for independent, neutral quality assessment of textile products - analytical competence. We are constantly working on expanding our range of services. New and special - here we report on newly introduced test methods. These are normative methods or modifications of already integrated procedures.
