PHYSICAL-MECHANICAL LABORATORY

IDENTIFICATION, CHARACTERISATION AND PHYSICAL ANALYSIS OF TEXTILE AND NON-TEXTILE MATERIALS

We provide a range of solutions to ascertain the physical properties of textile and non-textile materials, both as raw material and finished goods throughout the entire textile value chain, regardless of their presentation. In addition, we provide a full suite of services to ensure product compliance with national and international regulations and standards.

THE FACILITIES AVAILABLE

  • Fully equipped laboratory, with the most up to date technology for physical and mechanical testing.

  • The facilities ensure that standard temperature and humidity conditions required for each test are maintained. The equipment is rigorously calibrated.

  • Pioneer laboratory in Spain for physical and mechanical textile testing.

  • Qualified, specialised staff who undergo constant training in the latest techniques.
