AV- Asian Verification knows the importance of testing in the finished product (leather and textile) therefore we conduct the testing in a time-efficient and informative manner. We are fully equipped to perform the physical and chemical testing of leather and textile products.
What is finished product (leather and textile) testing?
Leather and textile testing refers to analyzing and determining the physical and chemical properties of textile and leather and their products. Furthermore, we conduct testing to make sure that the clothing is made according to the standard and desired quality. This testing is also important for production, distribution, and consumption.
During the creation of textiles and leathers, testing is completed in order to eliminate faults or problems before manufacturing. There are different factors that can affect the test results like the instruments used, methodology, and atmospheric conditions.u
The importance of AV- Asian Verification testing in the finished product:
Finished product testing is an important step for providing high-quality products that last. AV testing makes sure the high quality of products at every stage. These stages include the process of raw materials becoming dyed fabrics and then the finished product. Moreover, through testing, you can provide evidence to your business and customer that product quality meets the relevant standard, fits for purpose, and is according to the customer’s expectations. Testing the leather and textile products make you able to;
- Monitor the product quality
- Assess the product standard
- Help the research and development process
- Determine the performance of the product at every manufacturing stage
- Investigate faulty material
- Increase customer satisfaction
- Protect the brand image/reputation
- Make sure to comply with REACH regulations
- Earn an Ecolabel
- Become ready for evaluation
In addition, the majority of these tests are not expensive and time-consuming. We provide you with valuable data about the properties of components and materials. By using our testing services, you can prevent faulty products from reaching the market. We ensure through our leather and textile testing services that the products come to the high expectations on the market.
We have worked with top companies in many industries to establish new methods to measure particular product properties. In case, the test solutions don’t exist, we go ahead and find the right solutions as per the customer’s testing needs.
AV leather testing services:
We offer a wide range of services to the leather industry to make sure quality standard
Chemical tests for toxic dyes in Leather
Azo colorants are used in the leather dying process. They break down to produce toxic chemicals referred to as aromatic amines. There are two standard chemical tests used to determine restricted chemicals in leather products;
- EN ISO 17234-1:2010; it determines specific aromatic amines derived from azo colourants
- EN ISO 17234-2:2011; it determines 4-aminoazobenzene
Testing Leather for pH Value
We measure the acidity or alkalinity of leather to determine the durability of your finished product. This testing method can show the tanning or dying process’s quality. For testing the pH of leather, there are two standard methods;
- Use the damp indicator on the product. This method is non-destructive and provides approximate results.
- Another method is cutting the leather and then testing it by using the ISO 4045:2008 standard.
Testing Leather for Chromium VI compounds
Chromium VI is a chemical produced during the process of leather tanning. This chemical becomes the cause of severe allergic reactions when in contact with the skin. The leather products available on the market shouldn’t include chromium VI in concentrations over 3 mg/kg.
Physical Tests for Leather
In physical tests, we assess the durability and quality of leather products that indicate how the end user will use the finished product. Here are some examples of the tests that we conduct in our laboratories;
- Resistance to wetting
- Adhesive properties of finishing
- Tear load test
- Tensile strength test
- Colourfastness test
- Relative stiffness test
AV Textile testing services:
We offer the largest internationally accredited testing scope for textiles and our services cover an extensive range of textile commodities including;
- Home, towel, and garment accessories
In conclusion, AV- Asian verification provides a full range of testing services to make sure the compliance of products with specifications and regulations. We are always here to provide you with the best testing services for finished products. We examine the quality and durability of the leather and textile goods by testing their chemical properties.
