Hainsworth's UKAS accredited laboratory offers a range of standard tests for evaluating specific textile properties, both physical e.g. tensile/tear strength and also chemical e.g. colour fastness. By utilising the skill and experience of our Laboratory team we have also developed our own in house test methods for instances where standard test methods do not exist.
Our textile testing facility plays an integral part in the process of new product development. Strict monitoring and checking at each stage of the processing route gives us confidence that products will meet the exacting nature of specifications required by differing end users.
By working in conjunction with our customers we are able to relate specific test results to actual fabric performance, this relationship has enabled Hainsworth to maintain a position at the forefront of textile evaluation.
