Textile products often have to withstand tough conditions. Where possible, shirts should be non-iron, curtains should be opaque and awnings should be weather-resistant. Clothing must be suitable for chemical washing, while protective clothing needs to repel water or protect its wearer against heat. We set the highest standards for the finishes on our textile products – as a result, our laboratory is responsible for the important task of ensuring quality and developing solutions for customer-specific requirements.
Laboratory technicians inspect the textiles, independently plan and perform inspections, monitor inspections and assess the results. They analyse and prepare materials for dyeing (e.g. cotton, wool, silk, synthetic fibres, etc.). They develop formulations for pre-treating or finishing textiles, as well as assessing the quality and suitability of dyes, chemical and finishing agents. Their role also includes investigating any damages and analysing errors.
