AITEX is one of eight worldwide FIFA-approved laboratories for the approval of artificial turf football pitches.
AITEX offers its clients the most innovative equipment enabling a fabric to be assessed to predict the perception of comfort of the fabric, from the design of the product, manufacturing quality, the final product and consumer satisfactions, while providing a rapid response to our clients.
AITEX can perform different tests to determine the origin of each type of cotton: tests to determine GMOs, control of harmful substances (pesticides, dyestuffs, etc.) and physical-mechanical quality controls; the Institute also has vast experience in advising companies on certification
In response to the need for new high-performance, functionalised textile materials, AITEX focuses its research on development of innovative solutions that provide functional properties to the user’s skin and on the development of non-wovens using environmentally friendly technologies
LIGHTCOMP 2020 aims to develop functional lightweight composites with properties including heating, lighting and even the ability to measure physical parameters using integrated sensors.
León Grau García, Vice President of AITEX since 2016, was appointed President of the Institute at an Extraordinary Assembly held on June 19. Rafael Pascual Bernabeu has held this position for the last four years.
The main objective is to identify the training needs of the textile sector and provide a joint academic response at European level to the needs of the clothing and fashion industries.
AITEX is drawing up a Sustainability and Circular Economy Guide specifically for the textile sector in which the most relevant aspects to be taken into account by companies will be dealt with in separate chapters.
