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 (OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100), 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.

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.

Scope of accreditation (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018)

DAkkS Accreditation Certificate (D-PL-11239-01-00)

The test methods listed in the annex to the accreditation certificate reflect the status at the time the documents were issued. The accredited test lab is permitted to carry out tests according to different issue dates of the listed standards or equivalent testing methods, without being required to inform and obtain prior approval from DAkkS (flexibilization Cat. III or A).

For the fields of expertise of textile physical testing (PT), colour fastness testing (PF), special optical and physical investigations (PM), special testing methods (PSo) and testing of personal protective equipment (PSA), the test lab is flexible accredited with regard to the choice of standards or equivalent testing methods as well as the modification or development and refinement of testing methods within a defined testing area (extension of the scope of accreditation without being required to inform and obtain prior approval from DAkkS: Cat. I and II or C).

The scope of accreditation is therefore only shown as an example in the corresponding annex to the DAkkS accreditation certificate.

A complete overview of all test methods within the scope of accreditation can be found here:
