Reliable Laboratory Service

Our team of highly qualified laboratory chemists, textile and chemical- technical assistants, engineers, and chemists in the laboratory service department work quickly to deliver reliable results. We do our very best to respond immediately to laboratory inquiries regarding textile chemicals and processes, and deliver practical solutions. Furthermore, we are able to prepare field trials in our laboratory and evaluate obtained results.

Technical Application and Analytical Laboratories

In our technical application laboratory we are able to simulate and reproduce textile-chemical processes on a pilot scale. In doing so, we include all fields of textile chemistry, such as pretreatment, dyeing, finishing, yarn lubrication, printing, coating, finishing as well as garment washing and finishing. Our excellent technical equipment enables us to test and optimize products and procedures as well as to evaluate and control the physical properties of textiles. In our analytical laboratory, we can run chemical and instrumental analyses and offer analytical support for textile chemical issues.

Highest Quality Requirements in Textile Business

The demands for the quality of the textiles are increasing steadily. The textile business sector determines strict regulations for fastnesses and limits the use of harmful substances, such as formaldehyde. These regulations are far beyond the minimum standards which are required. We conduct many of our technical textile and chemical tests in accordance with international standards, such as DIN and ISO. For many different tasks, we have developed special internal testing methods. In order to provide comprehensive services to our customers, we work closely with renowned textile research institutes such as DITF Denkendorf and DTNW Krefeld.
