Ensuring the quality and performance of your functional textile
Functional textiles are engineered for a wide variety of uses where performance is a key factor. They can provide extra comfort and have specific performance properties such as breathability, UV protection, quick dry and more. Given these qualities, functional textiles are widely used in active wear and sports wear, summer/ winter wear, outdoor/camping gear and, increasingly, in urban attire. The various functionalities applied need to be experienced by the end consumer. To ensure this, the functional textiles need to be tested to the correct standards with the right expertise.
Why is functional textile testing important?
Functional textile testing enables manufacturers to determine the reliability of their products, thus ensuring that end consumers experience the specific function applied to a textile. The tests ensure that products are checked as per global standards so that manufacturers can access the key markets.
